LandingEdge from Palo Alto, Calif.’s Landing AI, revealed at the Automate 2022 show in Detroit, extends the capability of the company’s visual inspection platform LandingLens into more manufacturing environments.
With LandingEdge, manufacturers can deploy deep learning visual inspection solutions to empower more factories to better detect product defects consistently.
“These products mark huge steps in bringing deep learning solutions to the factory floor that are easily integrated to perform automated inspection for a broad range of applications,” says David L. Dechow, vice president of outreach and vision technology at Landing AI.
“They put ever more powerful tools in the hands of manufacturers and systems integrators to quickly implement inspection solutions that result in lower costs, increased productivity, and improve customer product satisfaction.”
With the new edge capabilities, LandingLens customers can more easily integrate with factory infrastructure to communicate with cameras, apply models to images, and make predictions to inform real-time decision making on the factory floor. If the factory is connected to the cloud, LandingEdge can update LandingLens with new data to continuously improve deep learning models.
The deep learning model is seven times faster than before by reducing the time it takes to train models, thus allowing customers to achieve fast and iterative AI processes and optimize model accuracy.
Deep learning is a key machine vision trend for 2022 and beyond in industrial automated inspection applications, however, deep learning does not make it easy to program an inspection system. The quality of the input data is essential to the quality of the output. In addition, proper labeling is essential for the implementation of a deep learning inspection system.
LandingLens, first unveiled in 2020, provides Landing AI’s customers with the end-to-end automated inspection platform that enables manufacturing, quality, and AI teams alike to train quickly and easily, test, confirm, and deploy visual inspection solutions based on high-quality and verified data on the plant floor.
