There’s been quite a bit of activity recently around the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI) for quality inspection procedures. Most of these applications focused on the application of AI to machine vision systems to identify defective products based. But now we’re starting to see AI more widely applied to other automation technologies—such as robots—to inspect operations as they are performed by the robot. Higher-end robotic systems have been incorporating AI for such applications for a while, but now Dürr, a supplier of turnkey paint shops, final assembly systems, and machine and robot technologies to the automotive industry, is expanding the scope of its AI applications with analysis software from its DXQ product family. According to Dürr, this interface makes it possible to incorporate robots into existing paint shops for the first time.
