Switzerland based ViDi Systems has bagged the second TÜV SÜD Innovation Award for Digitised Industries, which was presented at the TÜV SÜD hosted Smart Factory Innovation Forum in Munich.

The Innovation Award, which comes with €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.

“ViDi Systems 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 facilitates human-robot interaction and its complex image-analysis software helps machines to analyse their environment and use the results for self-learning.

“With ViDi Suite, computers learn in the same way as children do and we show them examples and enable them to generalise from these sample images,” CEO of ViDi Systems Nicolas Corsi explained.

“This is achieved through a deep learning program that uses machine learning to continuously improve performance,” Corsi added.

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

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

“ViDi Suite has proved its advantages in field tests and projects involving around 20 customers,” Dr Armin Pfoh, vice president innovation management at TÜV SÜD observed.

“The system is relatively easy to implement and low-maintenance, and can be flexibly customised to the customer's needs,” he too added.

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 September 24, 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.

The presentation of the TÜV SÜD Innovation Award for Digitised Industries underlines TÜV SÜD's own commitment in the field of Industry 4.0.

The company offers a broad service portfolio, including comprehensive services in the fields of operational safety, IT security and analytics. (AR)
