Smartening up manufacturing process with AI

AI enables machine learning by using a variety of training models to simulate and infer the status or appearance of objects. Vision Analytics on the factory floor adds intelligence to factories design and process.


AOI Defect Classification -
During manufacturing processes, defects could be introduced and harmful to the quality. It is necessary to classify the defects detected by AOI machine appropriately especially appearance defects. The higher the defect classification accuracy reached, the less cost spent on review and repair station. The TANK AIoT Dev. Kit features rich I/O and dual PCIe x8 signals to support add-ons like VPU accelerator cards (Mustang-V100-MX8 & Mustang-MPCIE-MX2) or PoE cards to enhance defect detection performance.

AOI Defect Classification

Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU Brief Introduction

Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPUs are built into the Mustang-V100-MX8 and Mustang-MPCIE-MX2 to provide a flexible AI inference solution for compact-size embedded systems.

VPU is short for vision processing unit. It can run AI faster, and is well suited for low power consumption applications such as machine vision, surveillance, retail and transportation. With the advantage of power efficiency and high performance to dedicate DNN topologies, it is perfect to be implemented in AI edge computing device to reduce total power usage, providing longer duty time for the rechargeable edge computing equipment.

Key features:

  • Native FP16 support
  • Rapidly port and deploy neural networks in Caffe and Tensorflow formats
  • End-to-End acceleration for many common deep neural networks
  • Industry-leading Inferences/S/Watt performance
