TYQ-i Product

TYQ-i Attributes

Uniqueness

TYQ-i is a distillation of Ignitarium’s deep experience in AI-for-vision. At its core, it blends the best of Classical CV techniques with advanced custom neural nets to create an efficient solution that can generalise across vastly different use cases. The same platform can be tuned to detect anomalies in an infrastructural asset spread over miles as easily as it can be re-purposed to detect a defect in a tiny part moving on a high speed conveyer line.

Minimal training images

Handcrafted custom neural networks (not just Open Source CNNs) that can be trained for high accuracy inference with minimal data sets (often less than a few 10s)

Scalable across defect classes

Common Neural Network platform architecture that can detect edge, surface, color, dimensional, missing or extra artifacts

Integrated SDK-based solution

Efficient SDK to allow quick deployment of the solution in live environments, irrespective of defect class being targeted

Works with low-cost cameras

Does not require high-end purpose-built industrial grade Machine-Vision cameras. Can even work with regular webcams in several use cases.

In-built benchmarking frameworks

The TYQ-i framework has a native benchmarking framework that allows quick identification of bottlenecks in the pipeline – be it registration, classification, inference or sub-stages in between.

FPGA-acceleratable architecture

Efficient architecture that can seamlessly transfer critical functions from the Vision processing pipeline into low-cost FPGAs to achieve higher frame rates or reduce latencie
