    For over a century, hardwood lumber has been inspected and graded by human inspectors with appropriate training and experience. NHLA is the "keeper" of the rules for inspection of hardwood lumber and provider of the training of lumber inspectors. IN the age when computers, sensors and scanner are ever more present in our lives, this event will demonstrate a working, industrial-grade system of software and hardware that can be used to assist human graders to become for efficient in inspecting lumber, or to grade lumber automatically. Demontration will include hardwood species of white oak, red oak, hard maple, soft maple, ash, polar, hickory, basswood and cherry.
