  author={Stephan Spiess and Markus Vincze and Minu Ayromlou},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Instrumentation and Measurement},
The repeatability of today’s robots is at least a magnitude better than their accuracy. A proper tool to improve accuracy provides geometric calibration which needs accurate measurement data of the actual robot. The laser tracking system provides an excellent means to obtain these measurements. In this paper we describe the calibration of the geometry of this measurement tool. The method is cheap and flexible, no external reference measurements are needed. We describe the design of our system… CONTINUE READING
