Abstract


This paper describes KUMONOS, which is a total station equipped with a built-in crack scale. Using this system enables one to accurately measure the width of cracks in structures from a distance. When compared to the traditional inspections based on hand-sketches, the advantages of the inspections using KUMONOS are high precision, safety and economic performance. Therefore, KUMONOS can be expected to perform a constructive role in maintaining structures.
