How To Use AWS as a Robotics Platform
June 19, 2019 / Brien Posey
AWS RoboMaker is more than just a tool for managing and monitoring fleets of robots. The service is also designed to act as a development tool, allowing engineers to write, test and refine code prior to applying that code to a production robot. One of the biggest trends in the world of IT over the last few years has been the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Although much of the business focus on IoT has revolved around relatively mundane things such as industrial sensors, robotics are increasingly being Internet-enabled. Not surprisingly, Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers a service called RoboMaker thats designed to act as a platform for creating, testing and maintaining Internet-connected robotics.
