USE CASES

Annotation Solutions for Robotics & Manufacturing

Maintenance planning to effectively cut costs and optimize operations requires solid, high-quality annotated data. Sama’s advanced annotation tools help you observe patterns to predict, mitigate and ultimately prevent failures for cost savings, higher predictability, and increased availability of your systems.

machine maintenance warning

CV-based applications can optimize the quality control process, increasing accuracy while optimizing operational efficiency and reducing labor costs. Sama’s expert workforce and advanced 2D and 3D image annotation tools help classify defects with high accuracy, minimizing the risk of recall and allowing manufacturers to halt production lines only when absolutely necessary.

machine quality control

Sama delivers high quality annotations to help accurately and quickly identify functional flaws, defects, or contaminants — at scale. Advanced annotation tools help to accurately detect and classify product labels and packaging to improve throughput and minimize the risk of recall.

machine package inspection

Sama provides high-quality annotations for image and video data resulting from IoT-connected smart cameras, drones, satellite imagery, and other computer vision applications of infrastructure monitoring. Detect maintenance problems and safety concerns—all with a higher degree of accuracy and at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) powered by the highest-quality annotation solutions.
