Palantir, Panasonic Energy form partnership for AI-driven smart factory operations

Panasonic Energy has teamed up with Palantir Technologies to deliver an AI-driven smart factory for their facility in Sparks, Nevada. The agreement taps into Palantir’s Foundry software to augment operations across Panasonic’s factory lines, incorporating automation, edge sensor integration, and operational connectivity.

Palantir’s Foundry is expected to streamline decision-making processes within the existing Nevada facility, as well as a planned factory in De Soto, Kansas set to start operations in 2025.

Before the partnership, Panasonic depended on a mix of automated and manual processes for data inspection and guidance.
