MusashiAI, a joint venture between Israeli SixAI and Japanese Musashi Seimitsu (a Honda Motor Corporation affiliate company), has announced the commercial availability of its autonomous visual quality control inspector.
Live trials from December 2019 confirm that MusashiAI’s unique autonomous robotic visual inspector exceeds the speed, accuracy, and stamina of human workers in a world-first technological advance.
In additions to its initial commitment with advance payment of $10 million, Musashi Seimitsu is willing to expand the deployment of MusashiAI’s autonomous quality control inspectors in its factories globally, subject to the company meetings certain development milestones.
The MusashiAI in-line visual Quality Control inspection offers 6 axis spacial moving axis, 50μm detection resolution, state of the art image processing, deep learning algorithms, high throughput with rapid ‘new parts’ learning.
The company has secured a Proof of Concept (POC) for the quality control inspector with one of the world’s largest bearing manufacturers. This agreement will be the first time the robots are being tested outside of the Musashi Seimitsu group.
An advanced form of deep learning which parallels the way the human brain absorbs and assimilates information was central to MusashiAI’s latest robotic model. Redeploying and switching robots between tasks is now much easier. These improvements are which the company anticipates will be essential for many socially-distanced industrial settings amidst the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
Ran Poliakine, co-founder of MusashiAI said: “Our vision is that the robots integrate easily onto production floors where there will still be some human workers, but others will be released from the drudgery of visual inspection. To our knowledge, no-one else offers visual robots which surpass the skills of human workers as ours do. Our OPEX model means clients can deploy robots when and where they need them, without extensive CAPEX.”
“The interest from Musashi Seimitsu coupled with our latest finalised POC trials with a world-leading manufacturer is a great sign of confidence in our technology and the gifts it brings to the future of humanity. I am excited about the company’s next steps.”
