Pitcrew AI is a new system leveraging FLIR thermal imaging and AI technology to change the way trucking and mining vehicles are inspected. The system is built by Industrial Monitoring & Control (IMC), who developed the system to automate inspections of mining truck tires. Mining haul trucks are no small investment—each truck tire can cost as much as $50,000 AUD to replace, and if a tire catches fire it may burn down the whole 5-million-dollar vehicle.
IMC has secured funding through Round 1 of the Australian Government’s Road Safety Innovation Fund. The fund is seeking to improve road safety in Australia through investing in critical innovation projects, with IMC's project described as: "Testing automated thermographic tools and their effectiveness in assisting on road heavy vehicle inspections."
Australian-based Pitcrew AI is leveraging a new system to inspect the tyres of trucking and mining vehicles. Using FLIR (Forward-looking infrared) thermal imaging and AI technology, the technologically-advanced system helps in detecting problems with tyres before major damage to the equipment, potentially avoiding deadly accidents on the road.
Pitcrew AI is a new system which involves the the use of FLIR thermal imaging along with an AI technology to inspect the tyres of trucking and mining industry. The system uses an AI algorithm which has a library of thermal images that helps in detecting problems with tyres in the early stages before any damage is caused. This system is a life-saver since it warns about the tyre condition which will help in avoiding major accidents that we hear about.
Pitcrew AI is a new system leveraging FLIR thermal imaging and AI technology to change the way trucking and mining vehicles are inspected. Using an AI algorithm trained on a library of thermal images, the system can spot problems in their early stages, before equipment is destroyed or vehicles cause deadly accidents on the road.
The Pitcrew.ai system developed by Industrial Monitoring and Control (Carrington, NSW, Australia; www.imcontrol.com.au) captures images and analyzes them for evidence of mechanical issues, generating alerts for site personnel to inform them of any problems without breaking the normal flow of operations.
