AWS RoboMaker, a service that allows customers to simulate robotics applications at cloud scale, now supports expanded configuration for any robot and simulation software. Previously Robot Operating System (ROS) and Gazebo are the only supported robot and simulation software configuration in RoboMaker. This new feature enables customers to use and configure any robot and simulation software of their choice while running simulations in RoboMaker.

To use this feature, you select General software suite for Robot application and Simulation runtime for Simulation Application. By choosing the Simulation Runtime configuration, RoboMaker bypasses validations for any specific robot or simulation software, and provides generic simulation features such as sourcing files to the simulation environment, logging, launching simulation tools, and streaming tool GUIs.

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.
