3D Monitoring

Automatic optical 3D displacement measurements performed by high-precision automatic total stations (ATS) are an indispensable observation method for monitoring tunnels and engineering constructions such as buildings, protections of banks and slopes, embankments and dams and also natural features such as unstable slopes, etc. Applications range from measurements during the construction phase up to long-term supervision. The possibility of observing critical objects online due to using automatic measuring systems has particular advantages:


  • No interference with ongoing construction progress

  • Continuous data acquisition with high frequency (24/7)

  • High level of automation and precision

  • Results can be displayed numerically and graphically

  • Automatic alert and alarm messages

  • Risk minimization (construction in existing contexts)

  • Cost reduction

Multi-station Network

If required, multiple total stations can be combined in a network to monitor widely dispersed areas. In this case, the data from individual measuring stations are transmitted to a central server via (radio) LAN or ISDN and administered in a database.
