Regardless of the task, be it defect inspection or object recognition, FotoNow is able to detect it in real-time with exceptional performance and above-human level visual quality inspection.

The proof of concept was promising. We developed two different applications in one of our production plants using image analysis software from FotoNow and are very satisfied with the results.
