Amazon Web Services introduce a new service for building robots

No primary category set

Amazon Web Services announced yesterday a launch of AWS RoboMaker that allows merchants to develop, test, deploy robotic applications and build robotic functions using cloud services.

Amazon Web Services, a subsidiary of Amazon that provides cloud computing services have designed AWS RoboMaker that combines a pre-built set of software and services that allows to easily create a robot in an attempt to help merchants spend more time on “innovations.” AWS RoboMaker makes it easier for merchants to build robots, add intelligent functions, simulate and test robotic applications, manage and update them.

The new service addresses the challenges that sellers often face with robotic development such as machine learning knowledge of a data scientist and long time-scales. It already pre-programmed to recognise objects, natural language processing, and autonomous movement and includes simulation worlds such as retail stores, indoor rooms, and racing tracks so sellers can add their multiple simulations to run in parallel.

When talking to our customers, we see the same pattern repeated over and again. They spend a lot of time setting up infrastructure and cobbling together software for different stages of the robotics development cycle, repeating work others have done before, leaving less time for innovation. AWS RoboMaker provides pre-built functionality to support robotics developers during their entire project, making it significantly easier to build robots, simulate performance in various environments, iterate faster, and drive greater innovation.”
-Roger Barga, general manager, AWS RoboMaker

Robotics has played a significant role in creating global solutions that help faster deliveries and lower costs for our customers. We’re excited to have supported the creation of AWS RoboMaker and to stand behind a service that will help accelerate robotics development and commercial deployments. We believe AWS RoboMaker will be impactful to advanced robotics operations across the world by greatly decreasing cost and time to production.”
-Brad Porter, vice president and distinguished engineer, robotics at Amazon

This announcement comes as Amazon have said that they’re hiring to recruit for their new secret device, which is speculated to be a robot. As it appears Amazon Web Services are aiming to accelerate their own and merchants processes through the automation, robotics and advanced technology.
