AWS IoT RoboRunner makes it easier for robotics operators to integrate with mobile robots from multiple vendors and build heterogeneous robotics management applications. With IoT RoboRunner, you can start small and quickly scale up as your number of deployed robots increases. You pay a monthly usage fee per robot.
Monthly cost per robot
You pay per robot and can add robots as you grow your fleet. There are no required minimum commitments and no long-term contracts. You will be charged at the end of the month for your usage. Your monthly charge is prorated from the day that you activate your robot on AWS.
Other AWS services
You incur additional charges as you use other AWS services with IoT RoboRunner. You must connect your robot systems through AWS IoT Greengrass, so there will always be an accompanying cost incurred directly for IoT Greengrass. Costs related to traffic coordination at shared spaces such as storage of robot arrival times, logic for clearing robots to enter, and associated logs and metrics are also billed outside of IoT RoboRunner. These costs are incurred directly from services such as Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon CloudWatch.

Pricing example 1
You operate a fleet of mobile robots such as Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) or Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) in your facility. You want to integrate two types of robots from different vendors. You know that both types of robots must pass through a shared space in your site and want to use IoT RoboRunner to facilitate interoperability.
You want to first validate interoperability of these two robot types in a test environment, before deploying it in your production operations. You decide to do the testing with two robots, one from each vendor. You sign up on the 16th of a 30-day month, and test IoT RoboRunner over the next three and a half (3.5) months.
Total cost for use of IoT RoboRunner with two robots for 3.5 months:
($250 * 2 robots for first month * 0.5 months (prorated)) + ($250 * 2 robots * 3 months) = $1,750
After the test, you want to deploy the solution to your production operation with your existing fleet of 12 mobile robots, with six (6) of each type.
Total monthly cost for 12 robots with IoT RoboRunner:
$250 * 12 robots = $3,000 per month
Total yearly cost for use of AWS IoT RoboRunner:
($250 * 2 robots for first month * 0.5 months (prorated)) + ($250 * 2 robots * 3 months) + ($250 * 12 robots * 8 months) = $25,750
You will be charged separately by IoT Greengrass for your on-premises connections, by DynamoDB for storage, and by CloudWatch for metrics. For more information about these charges, see the pricing pages for IoT Greengrass, DynamoDB, and CloudWatch.
