AWS RoboMaker WorldForge, a capability that makes it faster, simpler, and less expensive to create a multitude of virtual 3D worlds, now supports adding doors to indoor residential simulation worlds. With this new feature, robotics developers can add doors to connect rooms on the same floor of their indoor residential simulation world to test robot behaviors like navigating through doors and avoiding closed doors. Robotics developers can specify the initial angle doors are open in order to test their robot behaviors in a variety of simulated scenarios.

With AWS RoboMaker WorldForge, robotics application developers and QA engineers can automatically create hundreds of user-defined, randomized 3D virtual environments that mimic real-world conditions without extra engineering investment or infrastructure management. Having a large number of 3D virtual worlds enables developers to easily increase the scale and variance of simulations to support large-scale simulation workloads. Scaling simulation helps you make regression testing more robust, reinforcement learning faster, and synthetic data generation more affordable.

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. To get started, please explore the RoboMaker webpage or start generating simulation worlds in the AWS RoboMaker console.
