UVeye unveils vehicle inspection technology
UVeye has introduced a vehicle inspection system based on deep-learning technology that can reportedly identify small exterior defects on vehicles within seconds.
The company says that the Atlas 360-degree quality-control system, alongside its other products, is being shown for the first time in North America at CES 2020 in Las Vegas (Jan. 7-10).
UVeye also has a kiosk in Honda’s CES display as part of the Honda Xcelerator program which is designed to encourage new and transformative automotive technology.
The Atlas inspection system uses multiple high-resolution cameras to capture exterior assembly defects, post-production damage, missing components, and other quality-related issues. Atlas generates thousands of images per second at multiple angles to detect scratches or dents as small as two millimeters in diameter.
“Our new deep-learning technology will dramatically change how car makers, their suppliers, dealers, and major fleet operators inspect vehicles,” said Amir Hever, UVeye’s CEO. “We currently are working with a number of vehicle manufacturers to provide inspection systems on assembly lines and at dealerships around the world.”
The company recently announced that one of its Atlas assembly-line inspection systems will be installed at a major Volvo assembly plant in Sweden during the coming year.
Hever noted that the company’s proprietary algorithms, cloud architecture, sensor fusion, artificial intelligence, and machine-learning technologies allow it to automatically check vehicle chassis components, suspension systems, sheet metal, and tires within seconds.
Other products currently offered by UVeye include:
- Helios – An underbody scanning system that captures problems such as frame damage and fluid leaks, as well as brake and exhaust system issues.
- Artemis – Camera-based technology that automatically verifies tire specs and checks tire wear and quality, including tire pressure, tread wear, and sidewall flaws.
“UVeye’s AI-driven vehicle inspection systems are designed to help our OEM partners work more efficiently, augmenting their human capabilities to produce vehicles faster without comprising quality standards…Taking part in the Honda Xcelerator program is just the latest step in what we hope will be a long and productive relationship with the manufacturing industry. Our collaboration with Honda represents UVeye’s sixth partnership with a major automotive OEM,” said Hever.
At CES 2020, UVeye’s exhibit will be located in Booth 3116. It also will have a kiosk in the Honda display area (Booth 7900). Both exhibits will be in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
