Patti Perspective 2021 March

Resource Type: Newsletters | March 9, 2021

Our latest newsletter delves into the groundbreaking application of AI within a PLC, specifically the Siemens NPU, a neural processing unit that seamlessly integrates AI into SIMATIC S7-1500 PLCs. This innovation was recently harnessed in a project to simplify a complex pick and place task, allowing a robot to autonomously identify and handle items without extensive programming. The advantages are clear: greater flexibility for product introduction, streamlined solutions, and broader applications, such as vision inspection and palletizing. With AI becoming accessible to manufacturing facilities, it’s a transformative step forward to bridge the knowledge gap left by retiring experts.
