The manufacturing industry didn’t “need” computers to get started but they’ve embraced technology quickly over the past decades. One of the most recent opportunities for improvement is using applied computer vision for quality control, traceability and efficiency. Overview, founded by ex-Tesla engineers, had built these systems for their previous employer and now is bringing it to everyone else. Factory owners are embracing the new capabilities enthusiastically and that’s why Overview recently raised a $10m Series A to help grow its team and expand its customer base.
It’s always exciting to see a team predict the future and then go build it. Oh, and they’re hiring.
