Paper Abstract

In this paper , a new type of laser measuring system for experimental researches in marine and ocean engineering is described. This instrument is capable of measuring the track and two-dimensional attitude of ship models or other moving objects automatically by using a microcomputer and the laser scanning triangular method instead of the conventional tracking triangular method. In order to give the experimental data in real time , a new real time software system is made. This includes sampling ,dataprocessing , data-storage and screen-displaying in real time. So the Zig-Zag test for the small ship model in maneuvering experiment can be done accurately. The efficiency and usage range of the instrument are widened,
