The built-in machine vision of Robots integrates with light, industrial cameras and sensing elements to capture images. The deep learning technology of AI is also combined in order to accurately sense the shape, type and color of an object as a means to further enhance the inspection efficiency and difficulty in automated production, improving the quality inspection and accuracy in different industries.

In its 11-hour free English online course, Techman Robot will lead the students to explore the basic functions and applications of AI, and help them get to know the two major functions of AI: classification and detection. The course is nothing short of plenty of hands-on practices. Students will be instructed to gather their own samples through the Techman Robot’s TM AI+ platform and create an AI training project, and use it to execute an AI prediction at the end of the lectures.

Techman Robot Plays a Crucial Role in Industry Transformation and Smart Upgrades

Techman Robot Plays a Crucial Role in Industry Transformation and Smart Upgrades

The International Data Corporation (IDC) has predicted a new era in Global Digital Transformation (GDX). As a leading collaborative robot and smart vision manufacturer, we – at Techman Robot – have brought with us a series of solutions for smart manufacturing upgrades to the Taipei International Industrial Automation Exhibition. We provide TM AI+ – which is a highly efficient automated defect detector, TM Palletizing Operator – an intelligent palletizing system that integrates both software and hardware, and TMmanager – which uses data to drive digital transformation in many industries by smartly managing factory data. Teaming up with Formosa Television (FTV), a cross-border collaboration with TM Robot, to demonstrate augmented reality (AR) technology using a broadcast-graded camera.

TM AI+ Solution

Manufacturing is one of the sectors that have the most potential in Taiwan and is best suited for high-efficiency automatic quality detection. Techman Robot has successfully developed TM AI+ by using the advantages of built-in vision – an integration of traditional machine and advanced AI vision in a single robotic system. Without the need for additional controllers, the manpower, time, and money required in past integrations have been considerably reduced. The built-in vision system of TM Robot integrates with light industrial cameras and sensing elements to capture images. The deep learning technology of AI is also combined to accurately identify the shape, type, and color of an object as a means to further enhance inspection efficiency and accuracy, and solve the difficulties of automated production in different industries. The inspection data can also be used as guidelines in future manufacturing – a step closer to digital transformation.
