Robots are becoming prevalent in our lives, helping us carry out tedious housework, distribute warehouse inventory, automate manufacturing, and research lunar landscapes. But these applications demand a high level of intelligence and autonomy.

Until now, developing, testing, and deploying intelligent robotics applications was difficult and time-consuming. Thomas Moulard discusses AWS RoboMaker, a new cloud robotics service that makes it easy for developers to develop, test, and deploy robotics applications and build intelligent robotics functions using cloud services. RoboMaker extends the most widely used open source robotics software framework, Robot Operating System (ROS), with connectivity to cloud services. Thomas demonstrates how the service works to help you to accelerate your development timelines and build innovative robotics solutions.
