Foton Cummins
Beijing Foton Cummins Engine Co. Ltd. (Foton Cummins), founded in 2008, is the world's leading engine manufacturer with a high degree of equipment automation and extensive application of error-proofing technology. Foton Cummins is also one of the 90 "Lighthouse Factories" named by the World Economic Forum.
Manual inspections in automobile manufacturing often face major demands and challenges. This includes the fact it is time intensive and can be subject to human error. The SenseSpring platform delivers solutions to address three major industry pain points:
● Accurate Quality Inspection
● Efficiency Improvement
● Customization Needs
Cooperation plan
Backed by the powerful and proprietary SenseCore AI infrastructure, SenseTime launches an AI-enabled automatic engine defect detection solution with its industrial quality inspection training platform SenseSpring.

The SenseSpring platform addresses this industry problem by delivering solutions that cover three perspectives: multi-optical solution, multi-component support and multi-quality inspection.
"The SenseSpring platform not only enables accurate, efficient, AI-enabled quality inspection across multiple scenarios, but also helps us upgrade intelligent manufacturing and lays the foundation for agile innovation and the application of AI quality inspection in the automotive industry."

--Senior project manager of Foton Cummins

Accurate Quality Inspection - AI Precision Exceeds Industry Requirements
The SenseSpring platform supports over ten different image processing solutions under different lighting conditions, ensuring high-quality image quality inspection, data pre-processing and data enhancement. The platform is able to provide high-precision image segmentation for tiny defects with just 3-5 pixels, and even in extreme scenes where the image resolution reaches hundreds of millions of pixels.

Efficiency Improvement
Through accurate quality inspection and summary analysis of defects, factories can quickly distinguish the key defects from the general defects, speeding up the iteration of the process from "month" to "week". The platform can also detect the defects in multi-component parts, such as the concave, arch and multi-dimensional parts. It provides technologies such as Auto Denoise to improve the details of each component. At the same time, the platform provides unsupervised, semi-supervised and fully supervised model training for assembly defects and production process defects in industrial production to improve the accuracy of quality inspections.

Customization Needs
The SenseSpring platform has been rolled out across several Foton Cummins sites. Leveraging on the AutoML technology specially designed for small industrial datasets, the SenseSpring platform can achieve the best balance between computing power and accuracy in industrial quality inspection. The AI model obtained by automatic hyperparameter search on the platform is obviously superior to the ordinary model in both underkill and overkill rates, making full use of the capabilities of the powerful SenseCore AI infrastructure.
