The "Smart Klaus" cognitive assembly assistance system

Instructions and quality assurance in real time thanks to intelligent image processing

Cognitive assistance systems are used in assembly in order to direct employees in production and check in real time that working steps are carried out correctly. In this field, RK Antriebs- und Handhabungs-Technik counts on the sophisticated and tried-and-tested "Smart Klaus" assistance system. The camera images captured in real time at the workstation are analysed by the assistance system continuously and combined digitally with the stored specialist knowledge.

The assistance system uses the data and results from this cognitive process to generate guidelines for the employee which are tailored to the situation. When the assembly step is completed correctly, the system triggers the next stop and provides new guidelines. However, if an error occurs in assembly, it is immediately indicated with the corresponding notices.

Smart Klaus can also be used for incoming goods and outgoing goods inspection

In Goods Inwards and Goods Outwards, Smart Klaus also provides employees with support with automatic optical identification (Auto ID) of items which are difficult to tell apart. A further area of application for Smart Klaus is automatic optical inspection (AOI) of products in incoming goods inspection, outgoing goods inspection and final inspection directly on the production line.

The benefits of the workstations with cognitive assistance systems at a glance:

  • Training for employees, even if there is a large variety of variants, is reduced to a minimum
  • Assembly and real-time check in one working step
  • The current working instructions and inspection procedures are always used and observed
  • Prevention of rejected goods, repairs, no claims and certified traceability
  • Productivity increases – the fault rate drops
