AICC 2.0 Embedded Vision in Industry 4.0

Smart hand-held measuring device for defect detection and classification with the option of integration into networked production Image acquisition,
evaluation and result display with a single mobile device

The AICC 2.0 handheld device consists of two components: An acquisition unit and a computer unit. The acquisition unit has an integrated camera
with fixed optics and an illumination device. Thanks to the modular hardware architecture, it is possible to develop specific recording units for a wide
variety of measuring tasks and workpieces. The hand-held unit can then be adapted to the respective inspection tasks required without much effort
by means of a quick change.

The computer unit consists of an embedded board, a battery and a touch screen. The AICC 2.0 mobile inspection device detects damage patterns
on components semi-automatically with minimal effort and is therefore particularly suitable for complex components in small and medium batch sizes.

The device is integrated into networked production via a local and a cloud-based server. By creating interfaces to processing machines and components
and by developing and implementing self-learning algorithms, process control and quality control can be made more efficient thanks to greater
transparency, reproducibility and documentation of the measurement results.
