UVeye to Unveil Industry-Leading Vehicle-Inspection Technology at CES
UVeye plans to unveil an industry-leading vehicle-inspection system based on deep-learning technology that can identify even the smallest exterior defects on any vehicle within seconds.
The company’s Atlas 360-degree quality-control system will be shown for the first time in North America at CES 2020 in Las Vegas next month.
The UVeye system uses multiple high-resolution cameras to capture exterior assembly defects, post-production damage, missing components, and other quality-related issues. Atlas generates thousands of images per second at multiple angles to detect scratches or dents as small as two millimeters in diameter.
“We are excited to present our collaboration with Honda at this year’s CES,” says UVeye’s CEO Amir Hever. “UVeye’s AI-driven vehicle inspection systems will help our manufacturing partners to work more efficiently, augmenting their human capabilities to produce vehicles faster without compromising on quality standards. Taking part in the Honda Xcelerator program is just the latest step in what we hope will be a long and productive relationship with the manufacturing industry.
Our new deep-learning technology will dramatically change how car makers, their suppliers, dealers and major fleet operators inspect vehicles,” said Amir Hever, UVeye’s CEO. “We currently are working with a number of vehicle manufacturers to provide inspection systems on assembly lines and at dealerships around the world.”
He noted that the company’s proprietary algorithms, cloud architecture, sensor fusion, artificial intelligence and machine-learning technologies allow it to automatically check vehicle chassis components, suspension systems, sheet metal and tires within seconds.
This collaboration with Honda marks UVeye’s sixth partnership with a major automotive OEM. The company has raised more than $35 million in investment capital to begin the deployment of inspection systems at Volvo, Skoda, Daimler and Toyota. UVeye’s deep-learning technology was initially developed for the security industry to detect weapons, explosives, illegal drugs and other contraband.
