Our core technology is called 4D Vision, which is built around proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies that control robotic pose estimation and path planning, and object recognition.
4D Vision is run through robotic workcells using Apera Vue vision software. Vue is robot-agnostic and compatible with many of the leading robot brands. Apera Vue is suitable for bin picking, assembly, packaging and sorting applications.
The difference in performance versus existing vision systems is measurable in a lower total vision cycle time as low as 0.3 seconds (3 Hz). This performance metric includes the ability to handle objects with shapes and finishes previously considered “impossible,” such as clear, shiny or highly similar objects. These operations occur under ambient light and without the significant investment in cameras, lighting, sensors and fixtures needed by other systems.
