Automation in Automotive Industry
Even though the automotive industry already has several automated manufacturing processes, it still relies heavily on human visual inspection. Among others, the automotive industry is able to implement automated inspection solutions using machine vision technology. Let’s have a look at our newest use case.
In cooperation with MTS, spol. s.r.o., we have performed a feasibility study for surface inspection, in this case, inspection of the hood. For this project, in order to make the defects more visible, we have projected a line pattern over the target area.
The next step involved a 5MP area scan camera for image acquisition. Then, these pictures were uploaded to PEKAT VISION software. Lastly, we have trained our Surface Detection module for the detection of specific defect types, such as: scratches, dust, varnish defects, and other surface defects.
PEKAT VISION Surface Detection module then displayed precise heat maps over the defective areas.
