AWS RoboMaker supports sudo access inside robot and simulation applications at runtime

Posted on: Feb 4, 2020

AWS RoboMaker announces the support for sudo access inside robot and simulation applications at runtime. Customers now have additional flexibility to modify their robot and simulation application environment at runtime so as to align with the environment they have on their robot. With sudo access, customers can install custom software, make changes to the root filesystem, update file permissions, and troubleshoot issues.  

AWS RoboMaker is a service to enable developers to simulate, test, deploy and manage robotic applications at cloud scale. 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.
