Quality is always the top concern of pharmaceutical manufacturing. Compared to many other industries, pharmaceutical production underlies more demanding regulations. To ensure product safety and maintain consumer confidence, it is essential that pharmaceutical manufacturers control quality and prevent defective products and packaging from entering the supply chain. Like the impact of AI in other industries, pharmaceutical manufacturers have ongoing investments in AI-enable machine vision solutions in defect detection and quality control.
To deliver high-performance machine vision and visual awareness, the pharmaceutical manufacturers have required an embedded vision system powered by Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Movidius™ Myriad X VPU and Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit. In addition, this AI-powered system must support a high-performance Intel® Core™ processor and have sufficient storage and graphics capabilities to support cameras, lighting and controllers. In the pharmaceutical field, the fanless design is also required to achieve zero noise and no dust build-up.
