AWS RoboMaker provides a comprehensive cloud solution for robotics development. It features fully managed simulation capabilities built on scalable infrastructure. In this post, we use a simple Mini Pupper sample application to demonstrate how to use AWS RoboMaker for robotics application development, testing, and simulation.
In October 2021, we released support for containers in AWS RoboMaker to make it easier for more customers to bring and run their simulations. In this blog, we show you how to use containers to build and package Robot Operating System (ROS) applications to run in AWS RoboMaker. When AWS RoboMaker was first released, we […]
We’re excited to announce the preview of AWS IoT RoboRunner, a new robotics service that makes it easier for enterprises to build and deploy applications that help fleets of robots work together seamlessly. With AWS IoT RoboRunner, you can connect your robots and work management systems enabling you orchestrate work across your operation through a single system view. This new service builds on the same technology used in Amazon fulfillment centers and now we are excited to make it available to all developers to build advanced robotics applications for their businesses.
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.
To support the robotics start-up community, AWS invited early-stage robotics startups for a three-day program to learn and build with AWS Robotics business and technical experts. The AWS Robotics Startup Acceleration program was held virtually, August 17-August 19, 2021 with founders and technical executives from robotics startups.
AWS RoboMaker now supports ROS 2 Foxy Fitzroy (Foxy), enabling developers to use Foxy during development or simulation. In ROS 2, Navigation2 (Nav2) is the second generation of the ROS Navigation software stack, enabling robots to move autonomously from point A to B. Nav2 includes new features not previously available in ROS that help developers improve the performance of their robot’s navigation and enables new robotics use cases within logistics, hospitals, or security. In this blog, I review Nav2 features and architecture, and show you how to use Nav2 in AWS RoboMaker.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has released a new Integrated Developer Environment (IDE) desktop feature within AWS RoboMaker. This new feature allows iterative development and testing of your robotics algorithm code through your web browser, speeding up your development time.
AWS RoboMaker released a tool configuration feature that allows customers to improve control of diagnostic tools with their simulations. This new level of control allows users to configure which default tools to run, change the commands used to run them, and add additional tools. In this blog, we walk through two procedures. First, we walk through how to add a configuration to an existing tool and, second, how to add a new tool to your simulation.
Roomie leverages AWS and open-source tools to build and deploy a wide variety of custom robot solutions for their customers across Mexico and Latin America.
AWS helps Clearpath Robotics make it easier for their customers like Boston Dynamics to prototype robotics applications in simulation. With the AWS CloudFormation Launch Stack, Clearpath’s customers can launch Gazebo simulations in AWS RoboMaker with a click of a button.
