COMPUTER VISION FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

WHY NOW?

The automobile industry is currently undergoing a major transformation in order to best meet the growing demands for new means of mobility, the adoption of new technologies and compliance with evolving environmental legislation.

Thus, to design and build the cars of tomorrow, automakers and equipment manufacturers need innovative technologies and new services, such as computer vision and image recognition, that will ensure safety, quality and performance for their customers.

CHALLENGES

INDUSTRIAL INSPECTION AND AUTOMATION

The slightest failure on the line leads to production paralysis, a loss of time and therefore costs, up to several thousand dollars per minute. AI also brings new innovations, such as computer vision, to the assembly line to further automate.

  • Avoid production shutdowns due to breakdowns, maintenance operations or parts replacements
  • Reduce the overall production time of manufacturing a vehicle

SOLUTIONS

Predictive maintenance of production line machines

Optimize your maintenance operations by being notified at the very first sign of wear or other defects on production machines and avoid costly downtime.

Quality control of spare parts

Remove any faulty parts and avoid technical problems later on the assembly line or a return of the vehicle to the quality control stage.

The pressure for high production rates combined with the use of heavy machinery, including industrial robots, make production sites an environment conducive to workplace accidents (6.7 injuries per 100 workers in the United States in 2017).

  • Ensure compliance with safety standards
  • Prevent workplace accidents

SOLUTIONS

Detection of the absence of PPE or incorrectly worn PPE

Alert production site managers in real-time when a worker is not wearing his/her personal protective equipment (PPE).

Detection of an operator in poor posture

Prevent the development of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among your machine operators by analyzing their posture and identifying potentially damaging postures to be corrected.

AUTONOMOUS CAR

Self-driving cars undoubtedly represent the greatest revolution of recent times in the automobile industry and the first models set to be commercialized by 2025. By 2050 ,the value of the autonomous vehicle economy is estimated to hit $7 trillion worldwide.

  • Remain competitive by developing an self-driving car model
