Schneider Electric has announced a technology collaboration with Hailo Technologies, a supplier of artificial intelligence (AI) chip technology, to integrate Hailo’s advanced processors within Schneider Electric devices. More specifically, Schneider Electric is using Hailo Technologies’ Hailo-8 processor for its low power consumption and enablement of real-time, high-accuracy data analysis at the edge.
By integrating the Hailo-8 AI processor within its industrial automation systems, Schneider Electric says it will deliver significant improvements in:
- Pick and place to achieve object detection tasks six times faster than central processing units (CPUs).
- Quality control that can run classification processes 20 times faster than a CPU.
- Yield optimization to improve output and throughput and reducing waste by 15% on average.
