Enabled by the increasingly available embedded hardware accelerators, the capability of executing advanced machine learning models at the edge of the Internet of Things (IoT) triggers interest of applying Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) systems for industrial applications. The in situ inference and decision made based on the sensor data allow the industrial system to address a variety of heterogeneous, local-area non-trivial problems in the last hop of the IoT networks. Such a scheme avoids the wireless bandwidth bottleneck and unreliability issues, as well as the cumbersome cloud. However, the literature still lacks presentations of industrial AIoT system developments that provide insights into the challenges and offer lessons for the relevant research and industry communities. In light of this, we present the design, deployment, and evaluation of an industrial AIoT system for improving the quality control of HP Inc.’s ink cartridge manufacturing lines. While our development has obtained promising results, we also discuss the lessons learned from the whole course of the work, which could be useful to the developments of other industrial AIoT systems for quality control in manufacturing.
