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 […]
