Voice Industrial Use Videos

Voice, voice assistance, the use of a conversational agent in business… we talk about them, but we don’t hear them!

SPIX industry responds to this request by presenting use case videos, with sound. Operators are in a real or simulated work situation and use voice command or intelligent voice assistance functions to help them keep their hands free and carry out their tasks.

Smart Voice Assistant: Spix.SKILLS

Spix.SKILLS, intelligent voice assistance services are interfaced with complex software to help operators in carrying out their task. The operator can be near or far from the screen. He may also have no visual support and carry out all of his digital interaction by voice.

IBM Maximo

Demonstration of the use of an intelligent voice assistant to help an IBM Maximo user follow his work instruction by voice.

The demonstration consists of validating the progress of a work instruction by voice, with a guided part and a free part. The guided part deals with the safety aspects of the intervention. The free part comes under the expertise of the operator who remains in control of how to carry out his task.

Voice assistance services (Spix.SKILLS) interface with IBM Maximo software using a common communication protocol. Spix is installed on the operator’s workstation and therefore works in embedded mode, connected or disconnected from the network.

Preventive maintenance

Public part of the experimentation of an intelligent conversational agent for the generation of reports of anomalies during maintenance operations of complex machines in the field of defence.

The maintenance operations of complex machines in the field of defense require total traceability of interventions and potential anomalies identified. The environment is classified: no means of connection possible, neither wifi, nor bluetooth, nor 4G. SKILLS, Spix’s voice assistance services, follow specific data formats, and remain available to the maintenance agent to help report a defect and qualify it.

The public demonstration is carried out in a controlled environment on the premises of SPIX industry. The client is confidential.

Quality Control

Demonstration of using a chatbot to help a Delmia APRISO user complete a voice quality control instruction.

To illustrate the advantage of using a conversational agent, the operator does not have visual support and accesses additional information to help her perform her tasks. For example, the realization of a digital measurement can be complex, the validation of the tolerances, of the preceding measurements makes it possible to secure the intervention.

Voice assistance services (Spix.SKILLS) are interfaced with the Delmia APRISO software using a common communication protocol. Spix is installed on the operator’s workstation and therefore works in embedded mode, connected or disconnected from the network. The demonstration is in English.

Assembly / Assembly

Tire fitting operations at Michelin. The operator has no visual feedback and uses voice assistance services (Spix.SKILLS) to follow the progress of his work tasks and report the measurement information requested by quality monitoring.

The working environment is noisy, the operator is wearing gloves and his hands are busy with tools. The voice assistant transmits short information, sonifications when possible, and remains on standby for operator requests.

Field survey (REX)

Public part of the Spix.SKILLS experiment for the generation of field observations by voice for the field of nuclear dismantling. EDF’s nuclear deconstruction department uses a voice interface to help field inspectors report any anomalies observed. These anomalies participate in the feedback process linked to the monitoring of works and rare events.

The public demonstration is carried out in a controlled environment on the premises of SPIX industry.

Voice Controls & Commands: Voice

Voice control of a software interface. The operator is in front of or not far from a screen.

Quality Control

A steel tube quality control operator at Vallourec reports the measurements taken by voice. Simple voice commands allow him to validate a visual observation, or to update numerical measurements.

The very noisy industrial environment imposes strong constraints on the audio equipment and on the speech recognition bricks. A visual feedback on a screen allows him to validate the correct consideration of the instructions sent.

Assembly

Integration of voice commands for monitoring production and assembly lines at Renault.

The assembly and disassembly of electric car batteries are complex and potentially dangerous tasks for operators in the automotive field. Renault wishes to integrate support functions for its operators in order to secure their interventions and make the performance of tasks more reliable. The danger and the lack of quality essentially come from the forgetting of key stages by the operators. The Spix conversational agent is in charge of helping operators in carrying out their tasks and ensuring compliance with safety rules (good tools, suitable PPE, etc.).

The Spix voice assistant interfaces with production monitoring software, following a communication protocol established between SPIX industry and Renault.

Augmented reality

Interface of voice commands and simple voice controls with an augmented reality application for inspection in the nuclear field.

Augmented reality offers advanced technical solutions for the visualization of complex information. On the other hand, the control of interfaces, the manipulation of information, or the feedback of information remain complex tasks for an operator who has his hands busy.

Simple voice commands and advanced functions in natural language in the interface of an augmented reality application make it possible to simplify the manipulation of information and to report on field observations.

Built-in chatbot: Spix

The Spix chatbot is embedded in an industrial software application. A co-development project between an industrialist, a software editor and SPIX industry makes it possible to achieve this type of integration.

Inspection

Demonstration of the use of a chatbot integrated in car body inspection software.

An operator must control the state of a car. He can carry out his task step by step in a mode guided by his voice assistant. It can also use the advanced functions of a chatbot and provide aggregated information. The Spix conversational agent is able to classify the information received in the right place.

Shift Report

Use of the Spix intelligent conversational agent to help tunnel boring machine pilots in shift report generation.

Bouygues Construction has developed software for reporting technical events on the tunnel boring machine pilot day. This software integrates a conversational agent in order to provide a simpler and more fluid user experience for the tunnel boring machine pilot who has his hands occupied with piloting. The voice assistant integrated into the technical fact report software allows use in natural language and real-time reporting of all current events

Failure analysis

Integration of the conversational agent Spix in a breakdown and failure analysis software.

Identifying complex system failures and failures can be challenging for a field operator. The conversational agent spix is integrated into a breakdown identification software in the railway field. It makes it possible to follow a fault tree, to identify the probable points of failure and to trace the observations or the repairs carried out.

The Spix intelligent voice assistant is integrated into the target application, and works in embedded mode without requiring connection capacity.

Medical domain

Integration of the conversational agent Spix in a software for monitoring cognitive disorders in the medical field.

Cognitive disorders related to aging can cause language or oral expression disorders. The analysis of these disorders is carried out within the medical framework of specialized consultations. The tests used are standardized and validated.

SPIX industry has proposed an integration of its conversational agent Spix to facilitate and make reliable the analysis of language disorders in the elderly. In cooperation with the University Hospital of Bordeaux, integration with software for monitoring cognitive disorders has made it possible to carry out a first clinical study of the usability of an intelligent voice assistant in clinical practice.
