Abstract
Quality control of products plays an important role in various stages of the manufacturing process. In particular the final control of the quality of a product before being shipped to a customer is crucial for maintaining customer satisfaction and avoiding costly recalls. Automating quality inspection and integrating it into a seamless Industry 4.0 setting is therefore an important topic in factory automation.We present early work towards an automated product inspection station. Our inspection station features a 3D scanner as well as a Virtual Reality headset for remote human inspection. In addition, our concept provides for automated analysis of scans in the cloud. We present an architectural concept as well as an early prototype.
