Automation and Edge AI for Industry 4.0’

Newark, an Avnet company and global distributor of electronic components, products and solutions, is hosting a free webinar in partnership with the element14 Community, NXP and Doulos.

Doulos, the global training organization for electronics industry, will share their expertise on best practices for deploying new and traditional automation technologies coupled with edge AI applications. The webinar will be of particular interest to professional engineers and developers working in the semiconductor sector who are considering using AI in constrained edge devices with limited storage capacity or power requirements.

Participants will learn how edge AI complements existing automation components such as programmable logic controller, electric motor drives and sensors in an industrial application. Other key topics include the best way to apply machine-learning practices to edge AI, new considerations for data collection and analysis, and how to select the right devices for an application. Attendees will also discover how and when to train, test and deploy AI-enhanced automated systems at the edge.

The webinar will conclude with a real-world example featuring an NXP i.MX 8M Plus SoC working as an edge AI device. This practical illustration will show how the device improves yarn dye shade consistency by using image classification, tracks yarn ropes using object detection, and classifies process parameters by flagging anomalies based on time series analysis.
