Autonomy is the next frontier in industrial control systems.
Traditional control systems reach their limits when dealing with highly variable scenarios or when they have to focus on several competing optimization goals for throughput and quality at the same time. Autonomous systems can help. They can augment the capabilities of current proportional integral derivative (PID) and model predictive control (MPC)-based control systems. AI-driven autonomous systems make real-time and dynamic adjustments to handle complex situations.
By sensing and responding in real time, AI-powered automation optimizes equipment and processes. With it you can get more out of your systems as they will be able to control complex and dynamic processes, reduce the load on human experts, and manage multiple, conflicting optimization goals.
Democratizing the development of autonomous control systems with AI
Project Bonsai is an autonomous systems platform from Microsoft that provides tools to build an AI agent called ‘brain’ for driving industrial control systems in an optimal manner. With low-code AI capabilities, it enables plant engineers to build and train the brain to leverage their subject matter expertise through machine teaching. A complete toolchain for building, training, and deploying brains, it has three main solution pillars—simulation, machine teaching and deep reinforcement learning.
TCS has partnered with Microsoft on Project Bonsai to provide cutting-edge, AI-powered solutions to build optimized autonomous systems. Through our work on Project Bonsai, TCS aims to bring optimization in the following areas:
Make your industrial systems intelligent.
TCS autonomous systems solutions on Project Bonsai help:
1. Reduce wastage.
2. Improve product quality.
3. Maximize manufacturing yield.
4. Minimize machine downtime.
5. Optimize workforce deployment.
