BMW Applies AI Solutions to the Paint Process
May 27, 2020—BMW is now applying artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to the paint shop at its Munich plant, according to a press release.
Every freshly painted car body must undergo an automatic surface inspection in the paint shop. Data gathered in these inspections are used to develop a comprehensive database for dust particle analysis. The specialists are now applying AI algorithms to compare live data from dust particle sensors in the paint booths and dryers with this database.
Data gathered from AI can determine if conditions are not optimal for the painting process, according to the BMW Blog.
The algorithm monitors over 160 features relating to the car body.
