Rover and AWS are working together to bring robotic applications to the mainstream. Amazon invited Rover to their new re:MARS conference to showcase the power of RoboMaker on AWS. We developed the SwagBot, an autonomous T-shirt delivery system that works in sync with AWS RoboMaker.
How does it work?
A guest uses AWS RoboMaker’s web interface to input their name and t-shirt size. Then, the robot takes the data from AWS RoboMaker and moves over to the t-shirt dispenser. When the robot arrives, the dispenser drops the desired t-shirt into the robot, and the robot returns to the conference guest. We delivered over 700 T-shirts during the conference with a 98% success rate!
Where do Rover and Amazon Web Services go from here?
We are excited to partner with Amazon on maximizing the potential of RoboMaker on AWS. It is RoboMaker’s purpose to speed the development of robotic applications, just like Rover! We deliver modular industrial grade mechanics and hardware, and AWS RoboMaker provides easy integration with software (Robot Operating System, ROS). We look forward to satisfying the needs of developers, researchers and engineers. Amazon and Rover are tearing down the barriers to entry for robotics, and together we are building the future of robotic development.
Ways to work with AWS and Rover:
Start with Rover’s platform and browse our collection on our website.
The hardware delivered by Rover will be your first steps in developing a robotic solution. Tutorials, support code, curriculums and ROS2 demos will also be available on our website in the near future as we work with Amazon to make development even easier. AWS RoboMaker can be found on Amazon’s AWS platform and easily integrated with our platform. Together, fleet robotics and robotic software applications have never been easier!
