Mitsubishi Electric and AIST Develop AI Technology for Real-time Control of FA Equipment

TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) announced today that they have developed an AI technology that predicts changes during automated manufacturing processes and then makes real-time adjustments in the factory-automation (FA) equipment, such as motion speeds, etc., during operation. In addition to eliminating the need for time-consuming manual adjustments, the AI estimates the confidence level of inferences regarding factors such as machining error and then controls the FA equipment based on suitable levels of confidence. The technology is expected to lead to more stable, reliable and productive operations, particularly in agile manufacturing.

Key Features

1) Fast: AI achieves high-speed inferences for dynamic control of FA equipment control

In factories that use FA equipment for agile manufacturing, such as computerized numerical controller (CNC) cutting machines and industrial robots, the movements, operating speeds, acceleration, etc. of the equipment vary during the operating processes. In conventional manufacturing, skilled workers must adjust the operating parameters according to various specifications, such as the required level of accuracy. Mitsubishi Electric has now developed an AI technology that simultaneously performs high-speed inferences and equipment control for real-time FA operation. Incorporating Mitsubishi Electric’s expertise as an FA equipment manufacturer, the new low-load AI control technology performs inferences while simultaneously controlling FA equipment. Although the technology minimizes its processing load, it is capable of achieving high-level inference accuracy while simultaneously guiding FA equipment control.
