With steady growth projections and a rising need for technological innovation, there's incredible potential for embedded vision to grow and play a transformative role in aerospace.
FREMONT, CA: The aerospace industry has generally pioneered in the development of technologies, given its deep pockets and emphasis on quality and safety. This is almost the case when it comes to embedded vision systems. Embedded vision systems may become the game-changer in this industry. From the production of the final product to maintenance, embedded vision is transforming the aerospace industry tremendously.
Aviation is a vital part of the economy, and defense spending on aircraft is on a constant rise. This substantial market share of the industry means that there is an enormous market potential for embedded vision systems. Aircraft today is becoming more digitized to improve safety while collecting a wealth of data to enable informed decision-making. Embedded vision technology is being used in enhanced vision systems and synthetic vision systems to help with pilot visibility, aircraft control, and security. This will help in monitoring aircraft engines to gain an accurate insight into performance over the life of the engine.
At the production level, aerospace manufacturers need processes to be error-free to meet quality standards and overcome profitability-threatening supply chain inefficiencies. Embedded vision makes aircraft manufacturing robots smarter and more flexible while collecting valuable data as part of the development of the industrial internet of things. Smart cameras for inspection of manufacturing processes further increase productivity and data collection for ongoing improvement. Some aircraft manufacturers now even equip their workers with augmented and virtual reality headsets for better training and improved efficiency on the manufacturing floor.
Aircraft maintenance has a singular focus that is to return aircraft into service as efficiently as possible while ensuring standards of safety. One of the common maintenance tasks is to inspect an aircraft for dent damage, resulting from hailstorms, bird strikes, and equipment collisions. But manual inspection can be highly subjective and yield inconsistent and dubious results. But inspection based on embedded vision delivers valuable dimensional information, and it assesses manufacturing tolerances, conducts non-destructive testing, and monitors structural health.
All the above instances show that embedded vision is becoming a defining element in the aerospace industry.
