Elementary Robotics Unveils Industry’s First Cloud-Based AI Camera System; Appoints New EVP of Sales and Marketing and EVP of Engineering to Take Company to the Next Level
Elementary Robotics, a rapidly growing AI vision startup, today announced a new AI camera system for cloud-based inspection. The new system, which combines easy-to-use software, deep learning AI, and camera systems make it faster and easier for manufacturers to deliver top-quality products to their customers. The company is also announcing the appointment of Monique Apter to EVP of Sales and Marketing and Milind Karnik to EVP of Engineering. Founded in 2017, Elementary has built a hardware and software platform for applying machine learning and computer vision for intelligent automation of quality and traceability workflows in manufacturing and logistics.

Manufacturers have long used computer vision to inspect products for defects or other problems, but this traditionally involved programming rules for identifying flaws, making it time-consuming to deploy and change the equipment. Using AI, inspection systems can be fed examples of particular flaws or be trained on what a product is supposed to look like and asked to identify abnormalities.
AI based vision yields 90% more detections in manufacturing and can be deployed in less than 30 minutes. Elementary’s AI camera system for cloud-based inspection provides AI models that allow non-technical operators to teach systems to find defects. The solution also delivers cloud analytics, allowing manufacturers to deploy, upgrade and keep an eye on their production lines remotely, from anywhere in the world, to ensure the delivery of top-quality goods to their customers.
To date, several manufacturers in consumer packaged goods (CPG), logistics and automotive have deployed the system, including many large industry leaders such as Toyota, as well as local establishments such as Chicago-based Home Run Inn Pizza. Home Run Inn Pizza uses Elementary’s technology to ensure consistent quality in their frozen pizzas which are delivered to 30 states across the country.
“We are excited for the opportunity to leverage Elementary’s innovative technology to ensure the highest quality all natural pizza is making it into our customers’ hands,” said Nick Perrino, COO at Home Run Inn/Pizza. “The ease of use of this technology, coupled with its rich data analytics, gives us the power to take quality to the next level.”
“Elementary is solving a massive problem that customers need to solve around visual inspection in the trillion-dollar manufacturing industry,” said Mohammed Islam, partner at Threshold Ventures. “The rapid adoption of new applications enabled by computer vision is growing exponentially. Elementary’s new Cloud-Based AI Camera System for inspection is an industry first that will finally bring the level of automation and precision to manufacturing inspection that has been needed for years.”
