Even in this “table top” assembly process that takes place in a Shenzhen factory, you see parts being unwrapped above the table surface, the unit being moved freely on the table and being cleaned by blowing air on it. Notice how the worker is working naturally, how subtle several of the steps are, yet our solution is able to track them in bold on the left hand side.
We estimate that about 80% of manufacturing examples are like this where motion tracking alone is insufficient.
This is precisely our raison d etre: to provide a universal solution that can capture subtle details of a manual activity and is insanely simple to setup 
. In fact, one of the most sophisticated automotive manufacturers on the planet evaluated the motion tracking approach against ours, and found us to be far ahead of the competition.
So how do we do it? What’s special about our approach?
Our past two decades of applied research has brought us to three key technical ideas
that allow us to build universal “digital poka yoke” systems. These are:1. Context is important
: Human motion alone isn’t enough to understand a complex activity. The same motion cues can mean different things depending on the objects the worker is manipulating. We have invented technology that “discovers” objects that the worker interacts with (without requiring any object-level labels for setup), while interpreting the precise style of “grasping”. Here’s a video that showcases the concept (using a 3rd party tool for visualization only).
