Abstract: According to characteristics of perpendicularity error evaluation of planar lines, an improved particle swarm optimisation (PSO) is proposed to evaluate the minimum zone error. The evolutional optimum model and the calculation process are introduced in detail. Compared with conventional optimum methods such as simplex search and Powell method, PSO can find the global optimal solution, and the precision of calculating result is very good. Compared to other intelligence computation algorithms such as genetic algorithm (GA), PSO is easier to carry out with fewer parameters to adjust. Then, the objective function calculation approaches for using the particle swarm optimisation algorithm to evaluate minimum zone error are formulated. Finally, the control experiment results evaluated by different method such as the least square, simplex search, Powell optimum methods and genetic algorithm (GA), indicate that the proposed method can provide better accuracy on perpendicularity error evaluation effectively, and is well suited for position error evaluation.
