Spain-based Grupo Antolin is looking to develop a new computer vision system to detect defects in leather used for vehicle interior trims. To realize this goal, it has launched a new technological challenge in coordination with Ennomotive as part of its open innovation program Antolin i.Jump.
Ennomotive specializes in solving technology challenges by gathering potential solutions in an open tender process, and Antolin has already run six challenges on the platform in the last two years. These challenges saw over 300 engineering and professionals from across the world submit solutions.
The company hopes that a well-developed computer vision program will reduce production costs for leather trim parts, with current defect detection methods being almost entirely manual. Key among its requirements is that the process must be able to learn and improve to increase efficiency over time.
This online competition is open to professionals, computer vision companies, universities or tech centers that develop algorithms. The winner of the challenge will carry out a pilot test funded by Grupo Antolin to test the solution.
Those interested in participating in this challenge will need to sign up on www.ennomotive.com and send their proposal before March 29, 2022.
