HACARUS Check’s novel hybrid approach to image capture & analysis for visual inspections selected for the poster presentation section of the annual forum.
September 14th, 2023, Kyoto, Japan – HACARUS, on a mission to bring the next generation of instruments to every industry, today announced that its flagship product, HACARUS Check, has been selected by the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) for its poster presentation section at the 6th European Machine Vision Forum (EMVF), to be held in Wageningen, the Netherlands, on October 12 & 13th.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Where Research Meets Industry. Real-world Machine Vision Challenges & Coping with Variability and Uncontrolled Environments” – a fitting theme for HACARUS Check, as it was designed to overcome digital transformation (DX) challenges related to image capture and analysis experienced by end-users on the factory floor.
In visual inspection deployments, the image capturing process is the most important aspect for a successful outcome. Changes in the lighting conditions and other external factors in the production environment may compromise the desired results, even though AI is deployed for analysis.
HACARUS devised a hybrid system in order to avoid disturbances or interference while detecting anomalies on inspection targets in a 360°, enabled by a robot arm with a mounted camera that moves around the inspection target in a perfectly controlled environment. This presentation marks the first conference where the system is presented in Europe, and is part of HACARUS push towards global market rollout following strong reception in its domestic, Japanese, market.
HACARUS’ Global Partnerships and Marketing Lead, Adrian V.J Sossna will present on the first day at 16:00, in addition the poster outlining the innovative approach will be on display for the duration of the conference.
HACARUS INC., on a mission to bring the next generation of instruments to every industry, has since its founding in 2014, supplied solutions in 100+ AI projects across the medical, manufacturing and construction fields. Headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, and backed by Daikin, Osaka Gas and Miyako Capital (Kyoto University), among others, its technology enables humans to make better, faster, and more reliable decisions based on data-driven insights. HACARUS’ proprietary AI engine is built using Sparse Modeling, a method that understands data like a human would – by its unique key features and is far more resource, time, and energy-efficient when compared to Deep Learning.
