Coin Process Automation
Faced with a huge increase in demand, PCGS engaged Positronic to automate the image manipulation portion of their value chain. Creating purpose-built state of the art computer vision technology, Positronic built a software service that programmatically completes all of the image manipulation routines that were, until then, manual steps for human processors.
Positronic generated novel mathematical routines to programmatically crop irregularly shaped coins.
Rotate & classify
Positronic employed data science to create a service that programmatically classifies as obverse & reverse of a set of coins, selects the best image for each, and rotates those coin images into an up-right position.
