Automated Sewing Machines Bring Change to Fast Fashion Precision sewing machines use computer vision to drastically reduce the cost of producing garments. The robotic system brings supply chains close to the customer, enabling companies to offer on-demand manufacturing, fast fulfillment, and customized clothing, while reducing overstock and waste.
AI Development Centers Foster Collaboration Developers are highly focused on making the best products they can, and when they do, the next challenge begins: making sure they interoperate with other systems. Some companies have created testbeds to help developers and system integrators optimize their IIoT solutions and showcase them to potential customers.
Additive Manufacturing Gives Supply Chains a Boost Micro factories are cropping up as companies aim to strengthen their supply chains. Shipping containers that house 3D printers have become mobile mini-factories that can produce food, construction parts, and even military-grade products.
Guardians of the Infrastructure: Protecting OT from Cyber Attacks Cyberattacks are becoming more common, and the impacts are too great to ignore. Industrial cybersecurity—from asset discovery to vulnerability mitigation—should be a fundamental component of network planning in all mission-critical environments.
Machine Learning Brings Supply Chains into Ship Shape Shippers use machine vision to improve logistics and workflow when getting goods to customers. Improving operations throughout the shipping and delivery processes results in cost and time savings.
AI Roots Out Waste and Inefficiency in Manufacturing Manufacturers are using artificial intelligence to cut losses and waste. Computer vision can identify and address issues in production that directly impact the success of a business, both financially and sustainably.
Using IoT to Identify Malfunctioning Commercial Refrigerators Climate change mandates are impacting supermarkets, which maintain large, often inefficient, refrigeration systems. Luckily, advanced sensor technologies are making it easier to identify leaks and track temperatures, making markets more sustainable.
Largest Community of 3D-Printed Homes Rising in Austin in 2022 New energy-efficient homes can be built faster than conventional homes, while creating less waste and giving builders more design options.
ASUS Keeps an AI on Quality Control in Smart Manufacturing Automating quality control on production lines improves defect detection and ensures continuous operations. A customized automated optical defect detector leads one hardware vendor to build a software development kit to help system integrators improve their clients’ manufacturing processes.
Poland's Largest Steel Maker Uses AI, Vision to Keep Distribution on Track ArcelorMittal Poland converted its rail car monitoring system to foster greater accuracy and productivity. Its hybrid solution combines computer vision, deep learning, and near-real-time processing and identifies rail cars throughout a factory with just two cameras per checkpoint, while its weighing system uses the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit to rapidly match the cargo weight to an image of the car for efficient tracking.
