ABB robot implementation of Apera AI's Vue robotic vision software.

About Apera AI

Apera AI's goal is to make factories more productive by providing robots with human-like vision intelligence and speed. Our technology can be applied in applications such as bin picking, packaging, assembly, kitting, and sorting within multiple industries.

Inside Apera AI

Sina Afrooze and Armin Khatoonabadi founded Apera AI to make industrial robots smarter and faster.

Leadership team

Apera AI is led by an experienced team from high-growth companies focused on robotics, artificial intelligence, and advanced manufacturing. We are privately-owned and venture capital funded.

The company was founded by Sina Afrooze and Armin Khatoonabadi, now CEO and COO, respectively. Sina is a technical expert in the AI/ML/DL space, with previous successes at Avigilon (sold for U.S.$1.2B to Motorola) and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Armin is a serial entrepreneur, having built and sold multiple companies.

4D Vision technology

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.

Hear from one of our customers

Flex-N-Gate, a Tier 1 automotive supplier, needed a vision system that could precisely place automotive clips. By using Apera's Vue software, the company was able to increase the accuracy of clip placement by 9% and provide higher quality parts to its customers.
