Smart camera powered by deep learning technology

16 June 2020

Cognex has introduced the In-Sight D900, an industrial smart camera powered by Deep Learning software. This combination is said to expand the possibilities of what can be successfully and precisely inspected in factory automation.

Many manufacturers still rely on human inspectors throughout the production process because traditional machine vision systems cannot handle the complexity or variability within certain tasks. However, humans can be prone to inconsistent results from one human to the next, or they can tire over the course of an eight hour shift. Additionally, there are many aspects throughout production that still go uninspected from one reason or another. Both of these realities open manufacturers up to quality control issues or the chances for recalls.

A vision system with integrated AI is able to combine the judgement of a human inspector with the robustness and consistency of an automated solution for inspection or quality control. 

The In-Sight D900 comes with a new set of functions in a compact design. It embeds Cognex┬┤s deep learning software, known as In-Sight ViDi, inside an industrial-grade smart camera with the aim of expanding the possibilities of inline factory automation inspections.

The IP-67 rated In-Sight D900 hardware is a compact, industry-grade smart camera that can be deployed on the line without the need for a PC.
