Intelligent inspection has gained its importance in advance manufacturing and biomedical diagnostics applications. With this comes along challenges in automated optical inspection and deep learning techniques which include the availability of training samples, visibility of the key features, and resolution of the optical system. At the same time, large objects and in-situ measurements require imaging instruments to meet new demands in processing speed. In AIM, we are a one-stop solution provider of automated optical inspection focusing on cutting-edge advanced imaging technologies, including multi-scale imaging, hyperspectral imaging, active imaging and penetrative imaging. Our researchers carry out collaborative research with academic institutions, co-develop equipment and devices with companies, and provide technical services and training to the manufacturing industry.
