Title
(EN) MEASURING DEVICE THAT CAN BE OPERATED WITHOUT CONTACT AND CONTROL METHOD FOR SUCH A MEASURING DEVICE
Abstract
(EN)

A geodetic measuring instrument for determining the position of a target point includes a sighting apparatus that can be pivoted with respect to a base of the measuring instrument to change the orientation of the sighting apparatus. The geodetic measuring instrument has at least one objective unit defining an optical target axis and has angle measurement functionality for precisely detecting the orientation of the target axis. Evaluating means store to and control the orientation of the sighting apparatus. An eye image recording unit records eye images of an eye of a user. The evaluating means perform automatic sighting functionality regardless of viewing direction in such a way that the following occurs automatically after the function has started: at least one eye image is recorded, a viewing direction of the user eye is determined, or eye information suitable for deriving a viewing direction of the user eye is determined.
