In order to determine the actual dynamic characteristics of engineering structures, it is necessary to perform direct measurements. The paper focuses on the problem of using various devices to measure vibration, with particular emphasis on surveying instruments. The main tool used in this study is the radar interferometer, which has been compared to: robotic total station, GNSS receivers and sensors (accelerometer and encoder). The results of four dynamic experiments are presented. They were performed on: industrial chimney, drilling tower, railway bridge and pedestrian footbridge. The obtained results have been discussed in terms of the requirements imposed by the standard ISO 4866:2010.
