AWS RoboMaker now supports ROS 2 Foxy and full developer desktop

I’m happy to share some exciting updates from AWS RoboMaker!

First, we’ve added support for ROS 2 Foxy! See my blog below for a deeper dive highlighting some of the new Nav2 features using a Husarion ROSBot in simulation.
Nav2 features highlighted include:

  • Waypoint Following
  • The SmacPlanner global planner
  • The Regulated pure pursuit controller

Thanks to @smac (Nav2), Filip Kramarczyk and @Adam_Krawczyk (Husarion), as well as everyone at Open Robotics for support making this possible.

Also, AWS RoboMaker now provides a full Ubuntu desktop for developers using the IDE. This feature enables robot software development in the cloud with ability to view and interact with your simulations. ROS and Gazebo are already installed, making it easy to get started developing and simulating your robot.
