Fraunhofer Solution Days: AI-based software tool for automated quality control

Fraunhofer IDMT has developed a software tool for quality inspectors based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), which automates and simplifies the analysis of industrial sounds, for example in welding processes. Thanks to pre-built AI models, established methods for audio analysis and application-specific sensor data, companies can use it to improve their quality control decisively. Even without AI expert knowledge, statements can be made quickly and reliably regarding the quality of products and manufacturing processes during production and in the final quality inspection. The Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT will be presenting the new software at its virtual booth in the "Plant and Mechanical Engineering" area of the first virtual Fraunhofer trade fair, the "Fraunhofer Solution Days 2020".
