A smart leveling equipment was developed in this study by improving present leveling equipment. Both hardware and software of the equipment was developed and several accuracy tests of bench mark were conducted using various survey equipments. National control point (UO992-A), control points (15-00-06-24)-B and (15-00-06-23)-C were used for the accuracy test. As a result, the stable results in the range of errors were obtained in the cases of auto-level and digital level. Approximately 24mm error in the section of A-B and 26mm of B-C section was occurred in Smart Level equipment. This is due to the lack of technology completion and errors via relatively many numbers of installation tests. 46mm error of RMSE of smart level survey was occurred through the difference of section test. A small error was detected in short range but errors were accumulated far from the bench mark. It's concluded that an in-depth study emphasizing accuracy improvement can be practically applied to the various areas of industry.
