With a degree in Computer Engineering from the UPV and specialising in Systems Engineering, Automation and Industrial Computing (ESAII), it can be said that Ander Treviño, co-founder of Vi4Crane, is a pioneer in certain fields related to Vision and Artificial Intelligence. Terms with which we are familiar today but which were not commonplace at the beginning of the century.
His first foray into the world of industrial automation came in 2008 with Fatronik (currently in Tecnalia), when he joined the start-up Roboconcept. According to Ander Treviño, "it was an ambitious project", where the main objective was to automate processes using the Adept robot (currently Omron) Quattro (Fatronik patent), focused on the food sector. The mission was to design and manufacture production lines based on robotics and machine vision, such as food sorting, grading or packaging machines.
"Little by little we acquired knowledge in the application of Artificial Vision to industrial processes" which, in 2013, led him to combine his activity at Roboconcept with freelance work, offering services related to Artificial Vision and Artificial Intelligence to companies in the industrial sector, through innovation in their products or processes. During this period, Ander had the opportunity to meet, work and learn from many companies that motivated the approach of different projects and opportunities. Among them, "Vi4Crane was the one that caught my interest", partly because it was a sector with great projection, with low-tech processes and few companies specialising in them. But, fundamentally, because of the extensive knowledge of the sector and the market that its project partners had.
