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.
