Apera AI has updated its Apera Vue software, which incorporates vision and AI into robotic processes, such as assembly, bin picking, sorting and machine tending. The system can identify objects in 3D space and provide robotic guidance, even when objects are disordered. The AI-enabled software uses information about the scene captured from pairs of 2D cameras to develop path-planning instructions, which are then provided to a robot’s controller. Using a single PC, the software can evaluate information from up to four pairs of cameras. It also works with numerous robot brands, such as ABB, Fanuc, Universal Robots, Yaskawa, Kawasaki, Denso, Doosan, Mitsubishi, Epson, KUKA, Omron and Staübli.
The update adds user control over pick points, gripping strategy and simulation tools. Engineers can now choose pick points on the part and define clearances around the robot and gripper. They also can incorporate end-of-arm tools into the vision program.
