Title: Measuring system for determining the surface line of a body

Abstract: A measuring system has a freely movable measuring instrument and a computerfor processing the measured data. Two measuring devices are in themeasuring instrument, each with two acceleration sensors. Two of thesensor each in a common plane and the two measuring planes are at rightangles to one another. A measuring wheel is in the measuring instrumentfor acquiring the length of the displacement path of the measuringinstrument. The measuring instrument acquires the shape and length of asurface line of a body and its representation in two spatial planes with ameasuring range from 0 to 360.degree. in one plane. Input elements and adisplay arrangement on the measuring instrument serve to simplify themeasuring process and permit direct control and monitoring of themeasuring process.
