Run any high-fidelity simulation in AWS RoboMaker with GPU and container support

AWS RoboMaker, a service that allows developers to simulate robotics applications at cloud scale, now supports using containers to run any robot and simulation software of their choice, and provides Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) support for high-fidelity simulation. Now, developers can simulate workloads in AWS RoboMaker that require high-fidelity graphics such as autonomous driving and machine learning. In this blog, you will learn how to use new AWS RoboMaker features to test autonomous vehicles in the CARLA autonomous driving simulator, a high-fidelity simulator based on Unreal Engine.

Easily record and store robotic application data with the S3 rosbag cloud extension for AWS RoboMaker

The S3 rosbag cloud extension enables customers to easily configure and record data from robots as rosbags, and upload them to Amazon S3, which they can later use to analyze events, troubleshoot existing applications, and provide as inputs to AWS RoboMaker log-based simulation for regression. In this blog, we will review three ROS nodes in the S3 rosbag cloud extension that create and upload rosbag files from the robot to Amazon S3, with hands-on examples of how to use the nodes.
