AI to Smarten Up Automated Optical Inspection
Posted: 2021-4-14In the Bosch vision, the factory of the future will feature the ability to reconfigure itself to changing conditions such as product variance, production fluctuations and process adaptations – a new level of flexibility compared to today. That requires systems for automated optical inspection (AOI) to evolve from product-specific systems to task-flexible and convertible solutions. The Bosch visual inspection assistant (ViPAS) is the first step towards a redefined AOI-system.
In industrial manufactu...Read More.
