Madrid, February 2019

Apex.AI, a leading producer of software for autonomous mobility systems, is developing Apex.OS which is a safe, secure, robust and certified version of ROS 2. Apex.OS is using open source eProsima Fast RTPS product as one of its two backbone middlewares.

eProsima Fast RTPS product is a high-performance publish-subscribe framework to share data in distributed systems using a decoupled model based on Publishers, Subscribers and Data Topics.

It is an open source and its latest version 1.7 was launched recently surprising with such new features as TCP Transport, Dynamic Topic Types, and Security 1.1. Apex.OS has chosen eProsima Fast RTPS product as one of its two backbone middlewares.

Dejan PangercicHaving a proven, standardized and performant middleware is key to the success of Apex.OS. eProsima's FastRTPS is without a doubt one such middleware. Furthermore, eProsima Engineers are experts in this field who not only write a high-quality middleware but also provide fast, flexible and efficient levels of support.”
Dejan Pangercic, Apex.AI CTO



Apex.AI company was founded in 2017 in Palo Alto, to build robust, reliable, safe, secure, and certified software for autonomous mobility systems. The company offers Apex.OS product, a runtime software environment, which is built on ROS 2 (Robot Operating System) and provides a production-grade safety-certified real-time framework for developing safe and secure applications.
Apex.OS is a horizontal platform that enables software developers to write safe and secure applications based on ROS 2 APIs.

Apex.Autonomy provides functional building blocks for autonomous vehicles on top of Apex.OS, such as libraries for 3D perception, localization, and planning.


Dejan Pangercic is Co-Founder and CTO of Apex.AI. Prior to founding Apex.AI, he was the Perception and Framework Lead at Faraday Future and the CTO at Deepfield Robotics, developing an autonomous asparagus harvesting robot and most recently a 4D-scanning-robot for plant emergence counting and 3D leaf area measurement. 
Dejan also worked as a Senior Research Engineer at the Bosch Research and Technology Center in Palo Alto and as a research assistant at the Technical University of Munich. He is an author of several papers and publication in the field or robotics and robotic perception and the author of two patent applications in the area of field robotics. He is also a contributor to the Point Cloud Library (PCL) and one of the early developers of ROS. Dejan is a member of the ROS 2 Technical Steering Committee. He has organized various workshops and a frequent reviewer for leading conferences. Dejan earned a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Bremen, Germany, and a master’s and bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.


eProsima is an SME company focused on networking middleware with special attention to the OMG standard called Data Distribution Service for Real-time systems (DDS).

eProsima believes in the Open Source model and provides such Open Source Middleware solutions as eProsima Fast RTPS that is adopted by ROS 2 and eProsima Micro XRCE-DDS that gives access to DDS for eXtreme Resource Constrained Environments: Microcontrollers and which is the base of Micro-ROS. Its other products eProsima RPC over DDSeProsima Non-Intrusive DDS RecordereProsima Dynamic Fast Buffers or eProsima Shapes Demo are widely used as well.
