AWS RoboMaker simulation now supports GUI streaming for robot and simulation applications

Posted on: Mar 6, 2020

AWS RoboMaker, a service that makes it easy to run simulations at cloud scale, now supports GUI streaming for robot and simulation applications. This new capability allows developers to stream their own GUI enabled tools from the AWS RoboMaker console. For example, a developer can stream the interface of a mobile application that configures and controls the robot when their simulation job is running. Developers can take advantage of this new capability by simply bundling their own GUI enabled tools as part of their robot and/or simulation applications and then enabling GUI streaming for the applications.  

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. AWS RoboMaker also extends the most widely used open-source robotics software framework, Robot Operating System (ROS1 and ROS2), with connectivity to cloud services. This includes AWS machine learning services, monitoring services, and analytics services that enable a robot to stream data, navigate, communicate, comprehend, and learn. 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.
