Robotic Total Station or Robotic Tachometry System (RTS) are widely used for surveying purpose and solution. From surveyor to archeologist, professionals used RTS to solve many problems in data collection such as mapping the land use, archeology excavation site or used in construction field. Latest technology adopted in modern total station is servo motors to drive both the horizontal and vertical motion of the instruments. This technology is designed specially to search automatically for prism target (known as ATR). Manufacturers such as Leica Geosystem, Topcon Instrument, Trimble and Geodimeter have designed an instrument with ATR. Usually, the RTS can be used in precise measurement such as deformation monitoring or dimensional surveying for industrial. Both applications needed high precision instrument and also robust data analysis. This paper describes and discusses an industrial deformation software known as InDA (Industrial Deformation Analysis Software). The discussion includes the development process and the testing of the software. Also the data gathered from InDA were compared with Leica APSWin (commercial software). From the testing, the observation tolerance between InDA and Leica APSWin is less than 1 mm
