AWS RoboMaker, a service that makes it easy to develop, simulate, and deploy intelligent robotics applications, now supports the ability to interact with the applications in your simulation job, by connecting to your robot application or simulation application with port forwarding. A RoboMaker simulation job is a pairing of a robot application and a simulation application running in the cloud. When you configure port forwarding, traffic will be forwarded from the simulation job port to the application port. For example, customers can now connect to an HTTP server or ROS bridge running in their robot or simulation application, and debug or interact with their applications from a web browser running on their local laptops.

AWS RoboMaker provides a robotics development environment for application development, a robotics simulation service to accelerate application testing, and a robotics fleet management service for remote application deployment, update, and management. RoboMaker also extends the most widely used open-source robotics software framework, Robot Operating System (ROS), with connectivity to cloud services. RoboMaker cloud extensions for ROS enable a robot to stream data, navigate, communicate, comprehend, and learn through AWS machine learning services, monitoring services, and analytics services. To get started, please explore the RoboMaker webpage or run a sample simulation job in the RoboMaker console.

AWS RoboMaker is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) regions.
