The Life-Ready AI for Industrial Vision Platforms will be built on GML’s pioneering development of brain-inspired computing techniques for enhanced efficiencies that leverages FRAMOS’s state of the art stereo depth sensing technology for industrial environments through their D435e stereo depth camera. The platform offers full bodied IP66 rated cameras, or board level modules for easy and flexible integration into industrial designs, both with M12 ethernet and M8 power connectors, and are enabled with ultra low latency AI processing for applications such as orientation and tracking for robots; navigation of autonomous transport systems (AGVs); among some of the many possibilities.
GML and FRAMOS will showcase the integration of the Life-Ready AI platform and D435e Industrial Depth Camera at the Vision 2021 in Stuttgart, Germany, taking place over three days starting October 5th.
“We are proud to be working with FRAMOS to couple GML’s “Life-Ready AI” chips, state-of-the-art brain-inspired computing architecture, and FRAMOS’ robust D400e depth camera series, to enable many types of new low latency applications in industrial manufacturing that will allow us to bring AI processing closer to where data is generated. This collaboration enables us to realize the full potential of end-point AI, allowing for actionable insights into manufacturing operations to improve productivity and lower costs,” said Christian Verbrugge, GML Europe – Senior Director Business Development.
Ferdinand Reitze, FRAMOS Product Manager 3D, is delighted about the integration, saying: “GML successfully reduced the footprint of AI inference at the edge, while achieving best results, speed and low latency. Together with our D400e series, the Life-Ready AI chips will enable new ways to resolve todays and tomorrows challenges in robotics and automation for our customers.”
