4D Vision: Human-Like Perception with Robotic Precision.

Robotic guidance expertise that sees and handles with human like capability can be yours via Apera AI 4D Robotic Vision. Better bin picking. Faster Assembly. Complex sorting? Done. Kitting, packaging, and palletizing…common tasks that are great for automation but can get bogged down in the weeds all too easily. Robotic vision normally means time-consuming programming (and upkeep), lighting considerations that can easily derail the simplest operations, and robots that require constant attention. Apera AI enables your production to be faster and more flexible.

Apera AI enhances your cobots ability to conduct complex handling operations that previously were impossible due to size, shape, time constraints and dubious outcomes. When you combine Apera’s intelligent vision software, 2-D cameras (wait, it gets better), and hardware pre-loaded with tons of AI features that allow for unlimited object training, you realize revolutionary 4D vision for incredibly fast cycles, more accurate precision, and scalable utility.

How does this work? We start with a 3D CAD drawing, or a scan of the object to be handled. Once this is uploaded to Apera AI’s servers, a unique AI neural network trains and ultimately understands the objects geometry. This network transforms into a digital asset and is downloaded by the Apera software (Apera Vue) that runs at your site on the provided computer. The Vue software is then configured to use the new digital asset. You can start handling within a few hours!

Interested in the 4D vision system? The AI does all the work. We simply combine 2 (and up to 6) Apera provided 2D cameras that work with the AI embedded in the neural network. The neural network-similar to the connection in a human brain- is taught object recognition, perceptions and robotic control for the objects handled. The outcome is revolutionary 4D vision for your shiny, reflective, clear, and translucent objects. This system runs under ambient lighting conditions, so no specialty lighting is needed. The robots guided by the Apera Vue technology take the best paths to pick, handle, and avoid collisions.
