So we’ve been working with the folks at Open Robotics to get full Gazebo support for ROS2, which I believe is there now. We also have engineers working on ROS2 in other areas such as logging and security and now that we’ve launched, I look forward to focusing on getting ROS2 “production grade” and fully supported.
RoboMaker currently supports ROS1 Kinetic. We are actively contributing to ROS2 development and will support ROS2 Crystal shortly after its launch mid-December. We view ROS2 as the platform of choice for true commercial applications starting mid-December
Our latest announcement on this just happened today.
In a partnership with the AWS Machine learning teams, AWS has launched Deep Racer, a car running ROS in RoboMaker that can be trained to drive on a track using AWS SageMaker reinforcement learning then deployed out to a physical car on a physical track.
There will be competitions hosted several times a year. You can learn more here:
We’ve open sourced the Deep Racer:
We’ve also open sourced an Object Tracker application that runs on Turtlebot:
@adamd, do you know if the code running onboard the car has been / will be open sourced? I see packages like deepracer_launcher, webserver_pkg, ctrl_pkg, etc, but I can’t find their source under https://github.com/aws-robotics or anywhere else.
