Abstract

Current laser scanning systems in sawmills collect low-resolution three-dimensional (3D) profiles of logs. However, these scanners are capable of much more. As a demonstration, the U.S. Forest Service, Forestry Sciences Laboratory in Princeton, WV, constructed a 3D laser log scanner using off -the-shelf industrial scanning components.
