From Image to Insight

IntelliScience provides the software, tools, and services to convert light into images, images into data, and data into insights.

The IntelliScience software platform delivers precise, touch-free, in-process measurements in real-time and works with any camera or sensor, even leveraging the latest in hyperspectral sensor technology to go far beyond what the human eye can see. IntelliScience expands measurement and analysis from visible to thermal to chemical composition and more.

Let us help you transition from Image to Insight.

Why Other Methods Don’t Measure Up

Traditional measurement methods often fall short when it comes to characterizing complex processes and fast-moving product streams. Manual sampling, by definition, measures a very small percentage of the product. In addition, manual sampling takes time, so metrics aren’t immediately available. Sampling is also labor intensive, and therefore expensive over time.

Automated over-line measurement solutions, while better than sampling, are commonly built upon "point-based" sensors which still only consider a small fraction of the product and provide only a single metric. Point-based systems can provide workable information if the measurement target is homogeneous, but when significant variation exists, this approach simply doesn’t work. IntelliScience addresses this issue by delivering solutions that accurately measure and fully account for spatial variability, rather than ignoring it. The difference is striking. See the images below:

Measurement via point-based sensor

Standard Deviation

This image depicts a measurement by a point-based sensor, effectively capturing metrics for the colored column of product that passes beneath the sensor. Notice how this approach misses significant variability in the product, which renders the resultant metrics inaccurate to the point of misleading.

This is an identical image after measurement using IntelliScience. Each pixel in the image represents an independent measurement that is then aggregated and analyzed to provide consistent, accurate and statistically relevant metrics that you can count on.

Measure What Matters

What is it that you really need to know? IntelliScience enables the concept of measurement to be approached from a completely different perspective in order to tell you much more. Even with extremely simple metrics, this additional information can be critical.

What is it that you really need to know?

What do you want to know about the temperature of your product?

  • Average temperature?
  • Temperature variance?
  • Min/Max temperature?
  • Threshold breach?
  • Temperature bias based on location?
  • Relative temperature?
  • Temperature trend?

What do you want to know about the color of your product?

  • Variance to a color standard or specification?
  • Location of the color?
  • Relationship between colors?
  • Average color of a batch?
  • Instantaneous color?
  • Uniformity of color?

What do you want to know about product defects?

  • Total number of defects?
  • Number of defects by category?
  • Defect rate?
  • Average Size of defects?
  • Defect category mix?
  • Defect location?
  • All of the above?

IntelliScience can provide all of these metrics and many more, at the same time, in real time. By leveraging advanced sensors, we can also provide sophisticated measurement of chemical composition, further enabling you to understand and control your complex processes. And, we make all that critical information available through our Metric Streaming Data Service, a scalable, easy-to-use, web-based infrastructure that enables critical monitoring, alerting, predictive analytics, and process control.
