ABSTRACT:
The paper presents a method for estimating the uncertainty of optical coordinate measurement based on the use of information about the geometry and the size of measured object as well as information about the measurement system, i.e. maximum permissible error (MPE) of the machine, selection of a sensor, and also the required measurement accuracy, the number of operators, measurement strategy and external conditions contained in the developed uncertainty database. Estimation of uncertainty is done with the use of uncertainties of measurements of basic geometry elements determined by methods available in the Laboratory of Coordinate Metrology at Cracow University of Technology (LCM CUT) (multi-position, comparative and developed in the LCM CUT method dedicated for non-contact measurements) and then with the use of them to determine the uncertainty of a given measured object. Research presented in this paper are aimed at developing a complete database containing all information needed to estimate the measurement uncertainty of various objects, even of a very complex geometry based on previously performed measurements.
