Paper Abstract

The methods of how to improve the measuring accuracy of the autocollimator used over long outside distance are introduced in this paper. Pulse diode laser is adopted as a light source and CCD is used as signal receiver. By the optical design of common-path and the signal processing such as smoothing filtering, interpolating image center, eliminating anomaly data and identifying false points, a higher stability of 2.5” and a better repeatability of 5.6” are achieved in the positioning measurement over ten meters. The principle of auto-collimation, the optical system design, the signal processing and the experimental results are expatiated in this paper.
