Abstract

The newly released ASTM E3125-17 standard describes several point-to-point distance tests to evaluate the performance of spherical coordinate 3D imaging systems, commonly referred to as terrestrial laser scanners (TLS). The relative-range error test, which is one of several tests described in that standard, is a point-to-point distance test conducted along the ranging direction of the scanner to evaluate the distance measurement errors of the scanner. This paper describes a novel artifact conceived at NIST and now commercialized, that allows the test to performed efficiently, saving users of TLS systems considerable time and money.
