ViDi Systems wins TÜV SÜD Innovation Award

ViDi Systems, a leading Swiss software firm, has become the winner of the second TÜV SÜD Innovation Award for Digitised Industries, presented at the Smart Factory Innovation Forum, hosted by TÜV SÜD and munich network in Munich.

The Innovation Award, which comes with EUR 6,000 in prize money, acknowledges companies that develop new, particularly promising solutions in the field of industry 4.0, which have proved fit for the market in at least one project.

Innovative technology

The technology used in ViDi Systems is said to allow complex visual inspection processes, such as those used for surfaces in the field of automatic production machines, to be digitised and thus accelerated.

“ViDi Suite has proved its advantages in field tests and projects involving around 20 customers,” explained Dr Armin Pfoh, Vice President Innovation Management TÜV SÜD. The system is said to be relatively easy to implement and low-maintenance, and can be flexibly customised to the customer’s needs.

Fields of application include the pharmaceutical, automotive, textile and print industries, logistics companies and the watchmaking industry.

Facilitating human-robot interaction

“ViDi Systems’ ViDi Suite enables computers and robots to recognise and understand images,” said Karsten Xander, Member of the Board of Management of TÜV SÜD AG, at the award ceremony.

Among its other features, the solution is designed to facilitate human-robot interaction. Its complex image-analysis software helps machines to analyse their environment and use the results for selflearning.

“With ViDi Suite, computers learn in the same way as children do,” explained Nicolas Corsi, CEO of ViDi Systems. “We show them examples and enable them to generalise from these sample images.” This is achieved through a deep learning programme that uses machine learning to continuously improve performance, the company reports.

Smart Factory Innovation Forum

The presentation of the TÜV SÜD Innovation Award marked the conclusion and highlight of the Smart Factory Innovation Forum, hosted by TÜV SÜD and munich network on 24 September 2015.

The event, held this year for the second time, provides a networking platform for startups and established companies and helps to make innovations ready for the market.
