Japan’s Denso uses Abeja’s AI technology to streamline Thai auto parts plant

20, Nov. 2018

BANGKOK, NNA - Amid soaring labor costs in Southeast Asia, Japanese auto parts giant Denso Corp. will employ artificial intelligence to boost efficiency at its plant in Thailand, with the help of a Japanese tech venture.

Abeja Inc. said in a statement on Monday that it will work with Denso, a Toyota Motor group firm, using experience in deep learning to measure the speed and order of the human manufacturing process to optimize factory operations.

The two firms conducted a five-month test at the Thai plant through August and will apply the deep learning model there by yearend, eventually extending it to Denso’s other factories in Asia.
