The paper presents the automated on-line system for wood logs 3D geometry scanning. The system consists of 6 laser triangulation scanners and is able to scan full wood logs which can have the diameter ranging from 250 mm to 500 mm and the length up to 4000 mm. The system was developed as a part of the BIOSTRATEG project aiming to optimize the cutting of logs in the process of wood planks manufacturing by intelligent positioning in sawmill operation. This paper illustrates the detailed description of scanner construction, full measurement process, system calibration and data processing schemes. The full 3D surface geometry of products and their applied portion of selected wood logs formed after cutting out the cant is also demonstrated.
