In recent years, the "smart factory"concept that arose from Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) topics has become an increasingly popular term. Smart factories, via IIoT-enabling technologies, have the potential to improve productivity, reduce waste and downtime, and optimize manufacturing processes.
Machine vision has a key role to play in the smart factory of the future, as well, where automated manufacturing lines will be able to self-adjust to maximize quality, output, and profitability. Smart factories are no longer a pipe dream concept, but one that is here—offering those in manufacturing, logistics, and warehousing environments the chance to improve overall processes. During a free webcast on February 27, Tom Brennan, President, Artemis Vision, will discuss smart factory concepts and the role that machine vision must play.
Additionally, he will discuss the enabling technologies, various benefits, and considerations one must make to maximize the potential benefits that a smart factory offers.
