KI.NRW Demonstrator “DamageDetect” Back to Exhibitor Page

Previous solutions for visual quality control in industrial production are very complex to set up, require high investments and place high demands on the location (e.g. shielded rooms for robot arms).
The KI.NRW demonstrator “DamageDetect” for quality control of glossy or diffusely reflecting surfaces works completely automated and needs less than 1 minute for surface inspection. It categorizes the quality defects it finds using Deep Learning. The combination of deflectometry, i.e. the contact-free detection of reflective surfaces, conventional image recognition processes and Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods make the system so unique.
The AI-based visual quality control features a simple, mobile and cost-efficient hardware setup that does not require any special safety precautions. The system can operate independently of ambient light. This provides you with an easy integration option into existing productions or even mobile deployability.
