Product engineering specialist QuEST Global has enhanced its vision analytics and predictive maintenance solutions with Intel Edge Insights for Industrial. QuEST developed these ‘deep learning’ solutions to help OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers in the industrial and semiconductor sectors to automate security and monitoring systems and manufacturing tools used for making semiconductor chips.

QuEST’s vision analytics uses the Intel distribution of the OpenVINO toolkit to provide manufacturers with actionable insights based on specific patterns captured by machine vision systems. 

The solution uses AI to develop insights based on video feeds. The solution also incorporates Intel Edge Insights for Industrial framework to aid deployment by end-users.

The predictive maintenance solution developed by QuEST is designed to help semiconductor OEMs maintain manufacturing tools. In this application, Intel Edge Insights for Industrial framework provides times series analytic capability as part of a predictive maintenance solution. This analysis help OEMs determine the remaining useful life of an asset and help to optimise maintenance time.

Commenting on the two solutions Krish Kupathil, head – Hi-Tech and Digital, QuEST Global said, “As a trusted thinking partner to our customers, we aim to develop and implement innovative solutions in the areas of manufacturing, security and monitoring, and automotive. Intel’s Edge Insights for Industrial framework and related technologies have been enhancing our vision analytics and predictive maintenance solutions and AI capabilities, helping us create the frontier for our customers. We look forward to continued collaboration with Intel to drive tech-driven business growth for customers across industries.”

Intel Edge Insights for Industrial is designed to enable near real-time analysis at the edge by making it easy to integrate data, devices, and processes in manufacturing applications and easy to utilise Intel processors and accelerators. 

“The industrial sector is using Intel Edge Insights for Industrial-based solutions and tools to help improve operational efficiency and to help tighten factory security and monitoring. This enabling software makes it easy to deploy AI solution and optimises the hardware performance across Intel-based platforms,” said Jonathan Luse, general manager, Intel Industrial Solutions.
