Simulation World Assets
We have created additional environments you can use with your robots. They can be used to test facial recognition, navigation, obstacle avoidance, machine learning and can be modified for your scenarios.
WorldForge House Worlds
AWS RoboMaker WorldForge supports the automatic generation of a multitude of indoor home environments, complete with configurable floor plans and furnishings.
Small House World
Additionally, this simple home world is available for your use. It provides a small house with kitchen, living room, home gym and pictures you can customize to test image recognition. There are plenty of obstacles for your robot to navigate.
AWS RoboMaker includes sample robotics applications to help you get started quickly. These provide the starting point for the voice command, recognition, monitoring, and fleet management capabilities that are typically required for intelligent robotics applications. Sample applications come with robotics application code (instructions for the functionality of your robot) and simulation application code (defining the environment in which your simulations will run). You can get started with the samples here.
Launch in RoboMaker
Learn the basics of how to structure your robot applications and simulation applications, edit code, build, launch new simulations, and deploy applications to robots. Start from a basic project template including a robot in an empty simulation world.
Navigate to a robot to designated locations in a simulated bookstore world. Learn how to procedurally generate an occupancy map for any Gazebo world using a map generation plugin.
Launch in GitHub
Launch batch simulations in AWS RoboMaker with Code Pipeline and Step Functions. Learn more in the code repository.
Create a map and navigate the robot to a designated location in RoboMaker simulator. Learn more in the code repository.
Escape from a maze world by training a reinforcement learning model on AWS RoboMaker. Learn more in the code repository.
End-to-end robotics application
This sample application demonstrates an end-to-end robotics system with the Open Source Rover from NASA JPL. It includes a URDF file modeled after the popular open source project. Learn more in the code repository.
Multi robot fleet simulation
Learn how to spin up a fleet of robots in simulation in Gazebo, to enable development and testing of applications such as path planners and fleet management tools.

Hardware developer kits
Building robots and adding advanced functionality requires many choices by developers. To remove uncertainly and speed development, AWS partners have created a number of robotic development kits that include complete HW solutions, pre-installed SW, and extensive documentation and tutorials.
Intel – UP Squared RoboMaker Developer Kit
The UP Squared RoboMaker Developer kit is the easiest way to get started with your robotics project powered by AWS RoboMaker. It’s a starter package designed to be a fast and easy way for developers to add artificial intelligence (AI) and vision into their robots. This kit provides a clear tutorial for how to build hardware from the module level and how to use cloud services to shorten the development time. Developers have been able to add machine vision into their robots within a single day and working robotics demos in just a few days. With expertise from Intel, AWS and AAEON, this kit aims at providing developers a path from prototype to field deployment.
This kit features an UP Squared board with an Intel® Atom™ processor x7-E3950, Intel® RealSense™ D435i camera, an Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU, is fully compatible to AWS RoboMaker cloud services and extends the open-source robotics software framework, Robot Operating System (ROS).
