Abstract

The paper deals with the investigation of laser scanning instrument‘s possibility to be used for determination of the angular position or displacement of the object. Laser scanners are used widely in geodesy, structural and machine engineering areas. Such application gives new opportunities for measurement of an angle position of object in such places and positions, where usually used angle measuring instruments are not available or not possible to use. In this paper the determination of angular position of rotary device by means of plate freely placed on the rotating part and the laser scanning instrument is presented together with some experimental results of such layout application
