Our company developed a software for industrial visual inspection and quality assurance based on AI. With its unique anomaly detection feature it can detect even unexpected and previously unseen defect. PEKAT VISION is universal - it is able to check products or input raw materials which have an unstable look or shape so it can be used with all kinds of materials such as wood, stone, metal, lacquer, castings, leather, rubber or fabrics.

AI inspection combined with 3D

3D inspection

PEKAT VISION software is known for visual inspection using AI on images of products. Lately, we tried to explore new possibilities and extend our inspection into a third dimension in cooperation with Photoneo. This was done by inspecting depth maps from a 3D scanner in the PEKAT VISION software.

One of the projects we solved with such setup was an inspection of eggs in a package, where we used the Anomaly of Surface module to look for any anomalies on the depth map, in this case cracked eggs. Because the broken part of the egg is lower than the normal surface, the difference is clearly visible in the depth map. The lowest parts of the heatmap have red color, the highest areas are yellow.

The z coordinate can be also determined from the heatmap.
