Storage and AI Platform for Automated Garbage Handling
Innodisk, with subsidiary Aetina, delivered a combined surveillance-optimized storage and AI platform solution to an Australian manufacturer of automated garbage trucks.
In Australia, one company has specialized in single-operator garbage trucks where a robotic arm does the garbage bin handling. Due to the many tasks of operating such a vehicle, the manufacturer was concerned about accidents and damages caused by mismanagement and human error.
Because of these concerns, the manufacturer opted for a smart, 360-degree in-vehicle surveillance solution that would use AI to power object detection through a mobile vision system. This solution ensured that the robot arm handling waste bins on the garbage truck would react to changes in its environment both to avoid accidents and to improve performance.
The object detection and high-quality video provided through Innodisk and Aetina’s components proved crucial to the implementation of this AIoT system. The 360 degrees of vision around the truck enabled the vehicle to be operated by a single person assisted by an onboard AI, ultimately lowering costs while also improving performance and safety. This case amply demonstrates how industrial-grade components are used to create the core architecture of AI at the edge.
We at Innodisk believe that through cooperation, we can overcome any challenge. By maintaining an active line of communication from inquiry to implementation, we ensure a tailor-made solution that fits your application. We are committed to innovation with our continual focus on hardware, firmware, and software integration.
