There are many industrial inspection systems that use Deep Learning technology. But do we all know what it is?
It means deep learning on multiple levels of a machine. Practically, we can describe it as the learning activity by machinery through data collection thanks to the use of precise algorithms. Machine learning allows industrial plants to classify data and then verify which ones are more important than others and which ones can be used to solve a problem, as the human brain neural networks work. Deep Learning simulates the learning processes of the human brain through artificial systems. Cognex, a leader in machine vision products and systems, has decided to invest in this inspection technology by combining artificial intelligence with In-Sight or VisionPro software.
What are its functions?
Cognex technologies based on deep learning algorithms allow you to automate and solve complex industrial applications of:
The Cognex smart industrial camera that uses this technology is the In-Sight D900.
It perfectly integrates self-learning skills with the robustness features of traditional industrial inspection tools, thus developing a vision system that expands the boundaries of what can be inspected in the field of industrial automation. This camera easily solves complex OCR, assembly verification and random defect detection applications along the production line. The product can be used without the need for a PC, a great advantage for non-programmers. The interface is intuitive and uses In-Sight spreadsheets to set up applications without the need for programming.
Decode complex OCR applications
The In-Sight inspection system can decode poor quality, warped, crooked codes. Thanks to the use of the In-Sight ViDi Read tool, it is sufficient to define the area of interest and the font size. Through the pre-trained deep learning font library and continuous learning, even the least readable codes can be decoded.
Quick and accurate assembly verification
The Cognex industrial camera can accurately verify if components and kits are correctly assembled. The tool he uses is In-Sight ViDi Check. It is able of continuous learning in order to expand its library of components with variations in angle and size.
In this case, the deep learning tool (In-Sight ViDi Detect) studies the details of images of compliant components to precisely identify any defects on components and surfaces.
Another innovative Cognex deep learning software is VisionPro Deep Learing, designed for manufacturing production. It solves more complex applications than the In-Sight ViDi tool and simplifies the development of highly variable vision applications. This time it is necessary to harness the power of a PC to process many images per minute and to ensure that programmers can identify suitable solutions to meet the specific needs of their business.
