Automotive manufacturing is one of Europe’s most enduring industry which contributes around €74 billion. It accounts for millions of jobs, billions of euros in investment, and the production of 19 million cars, trucks, vans every year.
With such high production value, the auto industry demands effective quality control mechanisms. External and internal (micro) damages occurred due to transportation hazard and manufacturing errors must be timely detected. Such a reaction not only lowers customer dissatisfaction rate but also prevents potential life-threatening accidents.
The use of an AI camera can simplify and automate the quality control process.
How can AI help the automotive industry?
Nowadays, quality control is done by humans who inspect details and assembled cars for potential defects. The human eye has no sufficient capacity to identify micro-scratches and material flaws to ensure perfect quality. On the other hand, there is no place for human errors when a machine is doing all the work. Not only AI camera makes damage detection with meticulous accuracy, but it also speeds up the process.
For an AI to understand the damage, it must first understand what a ‘healthy’ car part looks like by compartmentalizing the images of cars (fed to it as data) into individual components. Later, when it analyses the image of a damaged car, it performs a comparative study of both states of vehicles and determines where exactly the damage is. AeyeQ have solid expertise in data accuracy and quality control performance.
Stages of damage detection
Computer vision begins by creating a 360-degree view of the site photographs of the car in question.
Then it marks the severity of damaged parts by scanning the breakdown of the singular 360-degree view. It scans through and through and the more advanced systems can even predict internal damage by guesstimating the characteristics of external damage.
Double-check quality control, the system undergoes another check of each car after repairing or fixing the damage to analyse any human error. At each stage, it can act upon the designed task assigned to it.
- Helps in macro and microdamage detection.
- Guaranteed quality and customer satisfaction.
- Avoiding any human error.
- Prevention of any accidents.
