AN important activity in industrial manufacturing processors is that of taking the measurements of patterns, machine components, jigs and workpieces. Since a large number of measuring instruments and methods are avaialable for small objects they present no real problems. However when large items have to be measured, as is the case in aeronautical engineeing, shipbuilding, antenna construction, the erection of large machines in automotive engineering environments and in applications involving industrial robots, conventional methods are woefully inadequate. This inadequacy is due to the need to construct expensive measuring devices that are often inconvenient to use and that can be the cause of undesirable side‐effects (interference, work interruptions, deformations).
