Software development in the steel industry

What do you do with software?

Do you have an example?

Calibration of many small plant parts is often a very time-consuming process at the customer site. We solved that with 3D laser scanners and an automated object measurement solution written in C++. At another customer, we freed employees from having to constantly watch the unspooling of wire. For that, we ended up using machine learning based on video data to detect fault conditions. While finding a solution for this problem, we also experimented with 2D laser scanners, as well as stereo and time-of-flight cameras, but ultimately traditional high-speed cameras were most convincing.
