IIT Kharagpur researchers have developed a transportable Artificial Intelligence-based machine for automated inspection of products manufactured in MSMEs, an institute spokesperson mentioned on Thursday.
The innovation will immensely profit the micro, small and medium enterprises, which depend on handbook checking and incur losses when a whole batch is rejected if a number of samples change into defective throughout random inspections, he mentioned.
The moveable machine will click on footage of merchandise when arrange on a batch of products and ship the feed to the AI-based software program for high quality management, the spokesperson mentioned.
The analysis staff, comprising Professors Surjya Okay Pal and Debashish Chakravarty, technical staffer Pravanjan Nayak and intern Ayan Banerjee from Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College, has filed a patent for the system, which can be made obtainable to MSMEs to license the know-how, he mentioned.
“MSMEs mostly rely on manual inspection, wherein a few samples are randomly selected and checked based on which the entire batch is accepted or rejected. This lacks effectiveness and increases the cost of production. Our system can inspect each product in a batch at a low cost. Automation is one of the key aspects of digitalisation and also the need of the hour,” Professor Pal, who heads the Centre of Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing Technology of the institute, mentioned.
The MSME sector, which employs over 10 crore folks within the nation and contributes almost 30 per cent of India’s GDP and 50 per cent of export income, remains to be exterior the ambit of industry-scale adoption of synthetic intelligence and machine studying, he added.
