AI for Machine Vision
Whenever test methods with conventional image processing are too cost-intensive or too time-consuming, deep learning is the ideal addition. We are continuously working on AI in our Innovation Lab. Cognex ViDi is the first deep learning software for complex applications in factory automation.
Classic image processing has its origins in the automation and inspection of standardized types or mass production. The advantage is a clearly defined environment with a very precise knowledge of which type of product or workpiece is being viewed. This means that a clear set of rules can be defined for a clear yes / no classification.
Deep Learning for Factory Automation with Cognex ViDi
However, rigid, rule-based concepts are no longer applicable to the factory of the future: Industry 4.0 is based on flexible, self-adaptable production systems. Machine learning does not require a rigid set of rules, but rather relies on preprocessed data. Sample forms or CAD models serve as the basis for classification; The machine goes through a training phase to teach it in.
To do this, she records large amounts of data and, based on a manual assessment, learns to separate "good" and "bad". In order to enable better object classification, a mathematical concept is used to define areas without mutual overlap.
We solve demanding applications!
Cognex ViDi Suite is dedicated to solving difficult inspection and classification problems. The result is a flexible program for countless applications in image processing. Successful applications can be found in the pharmaceutical industry, medical technology and logistics.
The Deep-Learning-Software Benefits:
- Solve machine vision applications that are too difficult to program with rule-based algorithms
- Compensate for disturbing background and poor image quality
- Maintain and retrain applications at the factory level
- Adapt to new examples without having to reprogram core algorithms
- Be used by persons who are not experts in image processing.
With the integration of the low-cost and reliable Cognex ViDi Suite deep learning image analysis, the following can be achieved:
- reduces development time, which accelerates time-to-market
- Inspection solutions expanded
- The human being as a quality inspector is exceeded
