Boston Dynamics Spot Robot

How Boston Dynamics and AWS use mobility and computer vision for dynamic sensing

AWS and Boston Dynamics are working together to bring dynamic sensing to life, taking sensors where they’re needed through mobile robots and using AWS tools to process the data into critical insights for industrial teams. AWS IoT Greengrass 2.0 is an open-source edge runtime that is compatible with Spot’s compute payloads and enables delivery and execution of applications or ML models on the robot. AWS IoT Greengrass also enables Spot to send data back to the cloud with flexibility for varied use-cases.

Introducing Log-based Simulation for AWS RoboMaker

Roboticists test their robot applications in simulations to understand how applications behave in different environments. This helps roboticists debug their applications and develop resilient robots. Recently, AWS launched log-based simulation in AWS RoboMaker. Log-based simulation eases the burden of building and managing infrastructure for log-based simulations. In the world of Robot Operating Systems (ROS), a ROS bag is a file containing the […]
