AI Augmentation for Inspection

In an inspection application, the AI Gateway acts as an intermediate between the camera and the host PC. The AI Gateway intercepts the camera video feed and applies the selected AI skill, for example image segmentation to pre-process or “focus” the inspection to improve results. The inspection application continues to control the camera through GenICam and receives the AI processed video as if it were directly connected to the camera and runs the existing vision algorithm.

End customers can deploy new AI capabilities alongside existing infrastructure and processes, while avoiding the cost and complexity of algorithm training and risk of a “piecemeal” AI solution with multiple components, proprietary APIs, and unforeseen costs to develop and support the solution.
