This paper describes a tunnel cross-section measurement system using a mobile mapping system (MMS). The MMS features a GPS/ Dead Reckoning (DR) combined navigation system, a three-axis GPS-Gyro/ Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), laser scanners, cameras, and the Network-based Positioning Augmentation Services (PAS). As GPS cannot be used in the tunnel, so the position estimation is done using IMU and Odometer. In this paper the result of comparison between the conventional tunnel cross-section measurement methods using 3D laser scanner and total station, and the proposed method using the MMS is described. And the examination result of the MMS’s positioning accuracy that doesn’t use GPS is described. The evaluation result proves that the tunnel cross-section measurement accuracy using the MMS is 7.0 mm, the MMS’s measurement accuracy is not different from conventional method using a 3D laser scanner and a total station. The MMS tunnel measurement efficiency is also confirmed in this paper.
