Easy-to-use edge learning brings the power of AI to everyone

Edge learning is a subset of AI that uses a pre-trained set of algorithms to solve vision tasks in minutes. Training is simple, requiring as few as 5 to 10 example images with no advanced programming or AI expertise required. Powered by edge learning, ViDi EL tools help you automate and scale inspection applications. These innovative tools deliver fast processing speeds to increase throughput, keep pace with your operations, and deliver fast, reliable results in real-time.

ViDi EL Segment

The ViDi EL Segment tool allows users to segment images to extract particular regions for targeted inspection. The region can include any type of feature on a part that you want to identify, from unwanted defects to critical components. Users train the tool by marking the region(s) of interest on an image and assigning it a class. After training just a few sample images, the tool learns to reliably segment the right features, even with varied parts and complex backgrounds.

ViDi EL Classify

The ViDi EL Classify tool automatically identifies and sorts objects into classes based on user-defined features, characteristics, or defect types. Capable of discerning visually similar, but different objects, this tool enables you to classify defects into different categories and correctly identify parts with variation. Along with the ability to assign multiple classifications, you can set up multiple regions of interest to inspect different sections of your part.

ViDi EL Read

The ViDi EL Read tool deciphers a variety of text and font types using AI-based optical character recognition (OCR). It reads multi-line text, as well as characters against challenging backgrounds, including reflective, low-contrast, and non-flat surfaces. ViDi EL Read can also be quickly redeployed to handle new text and accommodate process variations. The tool offers two training modes to address character reading applications of varying complexity:

  • Pre-trained mode – allows you to read characters right out of the box for simple applications
  • User-trained mode – allows you to train characters to solve more complex applications

In-Sight 3800 helps you lead with speed across all industries by automating a wide range of inspection applications, at the fastest speeds.
