Automate factory inspections with edge vision for manufacturing and logistics

Edge vision is a set of AI-based vision tools that enable a wide range of manufacturing and logistics inspections to be automated. Simple to set up and operate, it combines machine vision, rule-based vision tools and AI inside a single smart-camera.

Unlike deep learning, which can require hundreds of training images before deployment, edge vision comes pre-trained on common applications for factory automation.

A slimmed down vision solution , it can be up-and-running on a production line in just a few minutes. It works with existing vision systems, and doesn’t require any previous vision experience.

Edge vision is used to improve industrial productivity in a number of ways
