The mining customer was looking for a solution to help them identify vehicles on their worksites and track their movements on various parts of the site. They also had some unique environmental constraints – camera mounting points were exposed, video feeds often obscured and dusty, and the general environment was dusty and hard on computer equipment.
The XENON team developed a computer vision based solution to identify and track the movement of vehicles on the worksite. This involved advice on data collection, assistance with data labelling, and developing software and trained AI models that detect and read license plates and other identification marks on the vehicles and classifies them by type. The model also had to be robust and able to accurately function with poor images and vehicles.
The XENON team also assisted with the implementation of the final solution, adapting the hardware and software to the unique environment of the client. This included implementing fan-less, ruggedised computer units and a
parallel threaded software to run effectively at the edge on these lower power compute units. Implementation also included integration of the solution into existing systems and ERP related to the vehicle movements.
The results were increased safety of vehicle movements, and increased productivity as ingress and egress across the site was expedited.
AI Project Scoping Service
Thinking about AI, but not sure where to start? Tried AI before the the project stalled?
The XENON professional services team offers a fixed price scoping consultation to assist you to get started. You will receive a structured project plan with your Roadmap to AI, including:
- Problem definition
- Types of insights that can be obtained
- Extracting value (and data) from existing business processes
- New business processes to capture more or better data
- AI model, hardware, skillsets and upskilling recommendations
- Step-by-step map for moving forward, and clarification of expectations of what AI can deliver for your business.
Organisations taking up further AI services or purchasing AI hardware from XENON will have the costs of the AI Project Scoping credited to that next purchase.
