What is 2ndSight?

Arcus Servo Motion introduces 2ndSight Technology, the world’s first
comprehensive, patent-pending Motion Analytics Solution to meet numerous challenges facing the Automation and Manufacturing market.


With the ever increase in Automation and Robotics in Manufacturing, the need for true intelligence and analytics in motion is becoming more paramount in achieving the Smart Factory of the future. 2ndSight Technology, as a part of Servo 5.0 standard, applies Machine Learning, Physics, and Special Algorithms to obtain a comprehensive state of any motion system that is critical to the efficient running of a manufacturing line.

Any Motion System True Edge Real-time Analytics


2ndSight algorithm is straightforward to implement since it uses the existing data that are already available on the servo motor controller.  This means no additional sensors are required, and implementing in the existing motion system takes minimal effort.


2ndSight is a highly efficient algorithm that can be executed on the edge, resulting in compact but meaningful analytics data that are passed on to the supervisory stations.  This reduces the data storage and transmission bandwidth requirements.


2ndSight is a non-time-based algorithm and uses machine learning and streaming data analytics without requiring large volumes of historical data.


2ndSight enables real-time anomaly and creep detections and provides physically meaningful information about motion components.


2ndSight is universal and applicable to most common servo motion systems.
