Octavia (Skoda)

Feb 24, 2023

On February 22, Skoda announced that it is using AI-based image recognition “Magic Eye” to ensure timely identification of maintenance needs on the assembly line in Mladá Boleslav.
“Magic Eye” developed and integrated by the Škoda FabLab for the Enyaq iV and Octavia.
The images of equipment and parts subject to wear, such as girders, bolts or cabling, are captured by cameras on the overhead conveyor of the assembly line. As soon as the AI-based computer connected to the camera detects irregularities in the process, or a need for maintenance actions, it flags them in real time.
“Magic Eye” instantly compares its high-precision photographs against thousands of stored images.
