AWS RoboMaker, a service that allows customers to simulate robotics applications at cloud scale, now supports container images. This feature enables customers to use the container tools that they are already familiar with to build and package their code for running simulations in RoboMaker.  

With container support, you can now take advantage of container features such as cross-environment execution and dependency package locking while using RoboMaker. To use this feature, you create a RoboMaker Robot Application and Simulation Application with OCI compliant images stored in Amazon ECR (Elastic Container Registry). You can then use the created applications to run simulation jobs in RoboMaker.  

AWS RoboMaker is available in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Singapore). To get started, please visit the RoboMaker webpage or run a sample simulation job in the RoboMaker console.
