This study has been doing research and development of 3-dimensional measurement method using an image processing technique for a measurement of dynamic displacement in shake table test. This measurement system is a very convenient system because it can measure the 3-D dynamic displacement in shake table test in which the several makers are only attached to the surface of an experimental structure. The system therefore is the most suitable measurement system for an evaluation of complex 3-dimensional behaviour of test model. Fundamental hardware and software for the measurement system has been constructed until now. The fundamental dynamic measurement accuracy and effectiveness of the measurement system has been also confirmed from several shake table tests. In this paper, the dynamic measurement accuracy in three measurement units on the assumption of practical use is described from the results of shake table tests in National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention using the collapse building and the inverted pendulum model.
