Field Notes: Three Steps to Port Your Containerized Application to AWS Lambda

AWS Lambda support for container images allows porting containerized web applications to run in a serverless environment. This gives you automatic scaling, built-in high availability, and a pay-for-value billing model so you don’t pay for over-provisioned resources. If you are currently using containers, container image support for AWS Lambda means you can use these benefits […]

reference architecture - build automated scene detection pipeline - Autonomous Driving

Field Notes: Building an automated scene detection pipeline for Autonomous Driving – ADAS Workflow

This Field Notes blog post in 2020 explains how to build an Autonomous Driving Data Lake using this Reference Architecture. Many organizations face the challenge of ingesting, transforming, labeling, and cataloging massive amounts of data to develop automated driving systems. In this re:Invent session, we explored an architecture to solve this problem using Amazon EMR, Amazon […]

Deploying Autonomous Driving & ADAS workloads at scale

Field Notes: Deploying Autonomous Driving and ADAS Workloads at Scale with Amazon Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow

Cloud Architects developing autonomous driving and ADAS workflows are challenged by loosely distributed process steps along the tool chain in hybrid environments. This is accelerated by the need to create a holistic view of all running pipelines and jobs. Common challenges include: finding and getting access to the data sources specific to your use case, […]
