A Comparison of Two Distributed Large-Volume Measurement Systems: The Mobile Spatial Co-Ordinate Measuring System and the Indoor Global Positioning System

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Advances in the area of industrial metrology have generated new technologies that are capable of measuring components with complex geometry and large dimensions. However, no standard or best-practice guides are available for the majority of such systems. Therefore, these new systems require appropriate testing and verification in order for the users to understand their full potential prior to their deployment in a real manufacturing environment. This is a crucial stage, especially when more than one system can be used for a specific measurement task. In this paper, two relatively new large-volume measurement systems, the Mobile Spatial co-ordinate Measuring System (MScMS) and the indoor Global Positioning System (iGPS), are reviewed.
