Q. What is AWS IoT RoboRunner?
AWS IoT RoboRunner provides infrastructure to build applications for managing multi-vendor robots from a single system view. The AWS IoT RoboRunner centralized repositories provide a unified data format for site, robot, and destination data, facilitating interoperability. In addition, AWS IoT RoboRunner provides a Fleet Management System Gateway (FMSG) and sample applications, making it easier for developers to build their robotics management applications on top of AWS IoT RoboRunner.
Q. In what Regions will AWS IoT RoboRunner launch?
AWS IoT RoboRunner is available in the US East (N. Virginia) and Europe (Frankfurt) Regions.
Q. Who should use AWS IoT RoboRunner?
Industrial enterprise customers who buy, deploy, and manage mobile robots. AWS IoT RoboRunner also benefits software developers who build robotics management applications.
Q. Why should I use AWS IoT RoboRunner?
AWS IoT RoboRunner provides a central data repository for site, destination, robot, and fleet data, which makes it possible for developers to build applications for multi-vendor fleet management. In addition, AWS IoT RoboRunner removes the need for numerous integrations among different robot systems. Lastly, AWS IoT RoboRunner makes it easier for developers to build management applications for shared space management and robot position and status monitoring. Developers can use the provided sample application as a starting point to accelerate their application development.
Q. What robotic equipment will AWS IoT RoboRunner support?
AWS IoT RoboRunner provides reference integrations for mobile robots from select robot vendors. Developers who use other robots or vendors that are not supported can reference sample integrations to build new connectors.
Q. What robotics management applications can I build using AWS IoT RoboRunner?
You can build robotics management applications such as shared space management and robot position and status monitoring using AWS IoT RoboRunner service APIs, sample applications, or the FMSG.
Q. Where does the Fleet Management System Gateway run?
You can run the FMSG as an AWS IoT Greengrass component on premises. If you prefer to customize the library, you can deploy the customized version and run it as an AWS IoT Greengrass component on premises.
