Today, the company announced its LandingEdge, which customers can use to deploy deep-learning based vision inspection to their production floor.

LandingEdge extends that capability into deployment, Yang says. “Strategically, manufacturers start AI with inspection,” Yang said. “They use cameras to repurpose the human looking at the product, which makes inspection more precise.

LandingEdge attempts to simplify the platform deployment for a manufacturer. Typically users set up a method to “train” their vision system by plugging the LandingEdge app into programmable logical controller and cameras.
