Flanders Make

Development of an AI-based product inspection and rejection system

Flanders Make

Flanders Make is the strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry. Our mission is to strengthen the long-term international competitiveness of the Flemish manufacturing industry. That’s why we work together with SMEs and large companies on pre-competitive, industry-driven technological research, resulting in concrete product and production innovation in the vehicle industry, the manufacturing industry, and production environments.

Goal of the internship

In this internship, the goal is to implement a working inspection and rejection system for industrial products on a conveyor belt. Using 2D and 3D cameras (e.g. Realsense L515), products need to be localized and inspected with AI-algorithms for anomalies or deviations from the normal appearance of the product. Faulty products will then need to be removed from the system by a pressurized air nozzle.
