Application of Digital Automatic Levels and Impact of Their Accuracy on Construction Measurements

By Donatas Rekus, Vladislovas Česlovas Aksamitauskas and Vytautas Giniotis


Digital automatic levels are a precise instruments used for precise leveling. Operation of digital levels is based on the digital processing of video indications of a coded staff. At the beginning of measurement a visual pointing of the instrument into the surface of leveling meter is performed. After that the instrument automatically points the focus of its optical system on the surface of the meter and then a rough correlation calculation is performed followed by the precise correlation. According to the data received in the processor of the instrument an exact distance from the axes of the instrument to the surface of the level meter is calculated. According to the information received by decoding the data from the photoelectric matrix the height of the level placing is calculated in the processor. During this operation the coded view of the meter is compared with information that saved in the memory of the instrument. The scope if this work includes resort of digital automatic levels and impact of their accuracy on construction measurements
