AbstractThis paper describes recent improvements to the Biris optical range sensor and the application of the technology for the estimation of volume with emphasis on wood volume measurement. A description of the range sensor and the algorithms used to calculate the volume from range data are given. Two techniques are presented: 1) evaluation of volume using model fit, and, 2) evaluation of volume directly from raw range data.
