An Atlanta-based company has developed an automated clothing and fabric production line that could help bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.
"They're not engineering jobs, per se. But they're technician-level jobs. They're better jobs," says K.P. Reddy, CEO of SoftWear Automation. "What we've done is we've used computer-vision technology. We actually look at a thread-level and create a coordinate system ... Think of the camera as the eyes and the robots as the feet and fingers. We have a suite of products that is able to do things not only better than a seamstress, but also things a seamstress can't do like a complex curve or a perfect circle."
