Keeping an AOI’ on Autonomous Driving’s Future

By Dr. Song Keng Yew, James, Mr Glenn Siew Hai Koon, and Mr. Tang Chee Meng

Safety is the primary concern in the automotive industry. With more complex camera assemblies, the need to ensure the best quality from the manufacturing process becomes the most critical. It has indicated that there is an increasing market demand for its Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) machines to replace conventional inspection methods that employ human operators. With its automated visual inspection of component manufacture using a camera that autonomously scans the device under test for both catastrophic failure and quality defects, AOI is overall much more reliable and repeatable than manual visual inspection
