AVEVA launched Vision AI Assistant 2021, its new image classification-based analytics tool. This artificial intelligence (AI) solution, which can be integrated into AVEVA System Platform and Operations Management Interface and AVEVA Insight, helps enable its customers to use video and images from existing general-purpose cameras and convert them into user-friendly information and timely alerts.
Designed for low latency industrial environments, Vision AI Assistant leverages deep learning to train and deploy 24x7 artificial intelligence models to enhance situational awareness to help operators increase their focus on the task at hand without continuously monitoring live camera feeds.
Vision AI Assistant helps enable organizations to improve operations, quality, and maintenance capabilities across industrial enterprises by using cameras to determine visual anomalies and assess quality, all while more vigorously monitoring production, optimizing efficiencies and improving sustainability in the process.
Standard digital cameras can be used with Vision AI Assistant to better ensure quality control, such as, for example, by analyzing the quality of water treatment fluids, by gauging if a hopper is full or empty, or by identifying defective products on a production line.
Vision AI Assistant can also scan thermal or infrared camera feeds so operations teams can help to uncover visual inconsistencies. For example, by locating compressed air or fluid leaks, Vision AI Assistant can help to reduce failure and efficiency loss, and by spotting hot-spots in a data center, it can help to prevent overheating of critical equipment.
The AI solution assists maintenance efforts through continuous monitoring of plants and machinery, helping to provide an early diagnosis of equipment issues ranging from weeks to months before failure, which helps to prevent unscheduled downtime.
Vision AI Assistant is offered as an exclusive extension for AVEVA System Platform purchases through the AVEVA Flex subscription initiative. The flexible payment and usage program spans any mix of cloud, hybrid, and on-premises solutions across AVEVA's portfolio, helping to enable simpler license purchasing, usage and management.
