Perfecting Factory 5.0 with Edge-Powered AI

Enterprise Grade Safety Systems for Large Scale Factories Using Computer Vision and Machine Learning

Virtual Workshop Recap Video

About this Workshop:

Automated smart factories are using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to analyze data, run systems, and improve processes over time. In manufacturing, computer vision on the edge is an increasingly popular IoT application used in safety and quality assurance applications.

In this workshop you'll use AI and ML to:

  • Apply ML models on factory floor cameras and run calculations and return output for monitoring and troubleshooting of equipment and production environments - ensuring compliance and upholding worker safety
  • Use cached video streams for auditing model retraining, recognize defects and anomalies in your manufacturing environment.
  • Detect personal protective equipment (PPE) and monitor building entrances for personnel security.
  • Use smart notification to enable people to intervene at certain steps in the automation, as part of the intelligence captured by the models, creating a continuous cycle of training, testing and validating processes.
  • Learn how Edge Impulse MLOps can automate ML models for complex decision-making, enabling teams who build, train, evaluate, and deploy the models.

Participants of the workshop will be using NVIDIA's Jetson Nano, with our instructors using the Advantech AIR-020, an AI Inference System Based on NVIDIA Jetson Nano to showcase real-world factory 5.0 capabilities including:

  • Compact and performance AI box design
  • NVIDIA Jetson Nano/TX2 NX/ Xavier NX embedded up to 21 TOPS
  • Wide operating temperature range (14~130F / -10~55C)
  • Multiple IO ports: LAN, DIO, COM, USB 3.2 type C
  • Additional M.2 128GB expansion storage
  • Edge Impulse native support
  • Linux Ubuntu 18.04 built-in

After the workshop:

Every workshop attendee has the chance to get special offers from Advantech to try AIR-020 including:

  • Free Product Evaluation (Limited Quota):
    A 30-day sample evaluation program helps you make the best decision for your project
  • Special Discount (Limited Time)
    Save 5% off on AIR-020 AI box with a promo code. A buyer only has one purchase limit.
