Cognex VIDI Kit: Deep Learning for the Automotive Industry
The piston's compression ring serves several functions in a reciprocating engine, including sealing the combustion chamber and regulating fuel consumption. Defects on the compression ring are difficult to detect due to the reflective metal surface of the piston. The cylindrical shape of the piston is sometimes blurred and out of focus in the image. Normal variations in metal surface texture are expected as part of the manufacturing process, and some of these variations are acceptable, including rust spots, white areas, and surface cracks and fissures. But some long scratches that affect piston performance and threaten compression levels in the cylinder are the real flaws. The inspection system must be able to ignore normal variations and insignificant anomalies on the compression ring surface while identifying longer scratch defects.To program such complex inspections to rule-based algorithms would require complex defect databases. While manual detection is more flexible, it is too slow.

Drishti
Drishti
Industry 4.0 has a blind spot: Human beings. It turns out that people still perform up to 90% of factory tasks. Even in an age of robotics and IIoT, people are the main contributor to value-and, alas, to variability. Unfortunately, techniques for measuring human effectiveness haven't materially changed in a century. They remain manual and impossible to perform at scale. People are effectively invisible to analytics. Drishti (Sanskrit for "vision") solves this problem using what may be the world's first commercial application of action recognition to digitize human activities on the assembly line. Drishti creates a massive new dataset that enables true Digital Transformation for manufacturers while simultaneously making line workers more competitive against automation. Our mission is to "extend human potential in an increasingly automated world", starting with this 100-year-old problem in the $12T global manufacturing industry.
