Neurala Launches Detection Feature to Improve Production Line Quality Inspection

Neurala detection400x275

January 31, 2022

Neurala, which develops vision AI software, has announced its new detection technology, designed and developed for manufacturing and industrial settings. The new feature enables manufacturers to find and identify objects in a field of view that can improve the quality inspection process.

The feature is the latest AI model from Neurala, adding to its existing classification and anomaly recognition capabilities. With the addition of detection, manufacturers can now easily find objects in a field of view, opening up new use cases and applications across segments, including robotics, automotive and logistics. For example, an automotive parts manufacturer could use the detection feature to ensure the correct number of parts are in any given kit when checked against a bill of materials. If the technology identifies that an object or part is missing, it can flag it to the system to be handled accordingly.

“At Neurala we are on a mission to help the industrial and manufacturing industries harness the power of vision AI,” said Max Versace, CEO and co-founder of Neurala. “With the addition of detection, manufacturers will be able to unlock new use cases and applications that will help them advance their Industry 4.0 initiatives.”

The company added that existing detection solutions are hard to program and lack adaptability, which makes them inaccessible to the everyday manufacturers. As part of Neurala’s VIA software suite, the detection technology offers a quick and easy to program offering, regardless of skill level or AI expertise. The company said manufacturers can also integrate detection into an existing environment or adapt it to changes in the production line.

“Today’s manufacturers are under pressure to deliver, so they are looking for innovative solutions that will add value to their production line,” said Andrea Rossi, managing director at Visionlink srl. “The addition of detection expands the breadth of what Neurala’s VIA solution is capable of, giving customers a solution that addresses their most pressing needs while saving time, money and resources to improve their bottom line.”

Neurala also announced support of EtherNet/IP, which expands VIA’s ability to more easily integrate into existing machinery without the need for additional adapters or specialized knowledge. The addition of EtherNet/IP, the most common industrial protocol in North America, enables the company to serve new and existing customers with native supported industrial outputs.
