Tecan has recently launch commercially DeckCheck™, its worktable recognition solution and are now ramping up their component and subsystem digitalization efforts towards intelligent automation.
“DeckCheck™ will strengthen Tecan’s Fluent platform by providing state-of-the-art assistance in setting up and verifying workflows. It is expected to significantly reduce user error, the cause of a substantial proportion of workflow crashes. This will contribute to a sizeable decrease in sample and consumable losses, thus yielding a positive environmental impact." Dany Chek, Senior Project Manager at Tecan.
The new algorithm's potential doesn't end there, however. CSEM has already used it for a project in the field of quality control for electronic components and envisages wider applications.
As Roger Limacher, Project Manager at CSEM, explains, “The neuronal image comparison approach is also highly relevant to sectors such as security and surveillance where you want to make sure that an object remains where it should be and understand what an image of the object will look like in different light conditions.”
