Artificial intelligence opens up new fields of application for camera technology and image processing. It can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations).
To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications.
Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company: IDS. Users only need sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good" / "bad") to create a neural network. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy.
Anyone wishing to test the potential of AI for their applications should take a closer look at the IDS NXT ocean Design-In Kit, which includes all components to create, train and run a neural net.
