Containerize robot applications for testing in the cloud and deploying at the edge

Robotics developers use the open source Robot Operating System (ROS) to build distributed and complex applications for their robots. Robot developers benefit from using the cloud for building, training, and testing robotic applications at scale with Continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) workflows for physical testing and updates pushed over the air. Containers provide a […]

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.
