Conduct inspections in real time on iPhone or iPad
IBM Services Software Inspector Portable is a native iOS or iPadOS mobile app that leverages the capabilities of IBM Maximo Visual Inspection to run Core ML models on iPhone or iPad, enabling handheld visual inspections. IBM Inspector Portable introduces the concept of inspection procedures that enable users to conduct multiple inspections as a progression of steps. Procedures can be easily created in the IBM Service Software Inspection Workbench companion app running on an iPhone or iPad.
Perform rapid identification of anomalies and defects
The IBM Inspector Portable app uses complex computer vision models that are developed on IBM Maximo Visual Inspection deep-learning platform to enable the rapid identification of anomalies and defects by capturing images using an iPhone or iPad. IBM Inspector Portable also can run Core ML models exported from Maximo Visual Inspection, enabling local inferencing on-device without requiring network connectivity.
Capture photos and perform inferencing in real time
IBM Inspector Portable extends the value of Maximo Visual Inspection’s security-rich computer vision model training and implementation environment by using the integrated cameras available on an iPhone or iPad to capture photos and perform inferencing in real time. Configurable business rules can be applied to determine whether subsequent action is required — and viewed on an integrated dashboard.
Take advantage of advanced features of iPhone or iPad
IBM Inspector Portable is uniquely designed to take advantage of the advanced features of iOS or iPadOS devices, including the integrated high-resolution camera to capture images for training and running visual models as well as multiple connectivity options (Wi-Fi, 5G, LTE, Bluetooth and Ethernet with external adapters) that permit flexibility in how inspections can be deployed.
