Aws wants to fix robotics’ interoperability problem

AWS released a preview of its robotic fleet management system AWS IoT RoboRunner. The goal is to make it easier for companies to deploy robots, no matter the vendor. The system builds on the same technology used in Amazon’s fulfillment centers. It will integrate with other AWS services such as SageMaker.

AWS IoT RoboRunner provides reference integrations for mobile robots from select robot vendors. Earlier today, AWS partnered with MassRobotics on a robotics startup accelerator. The four-week program will drive a select cohort of robotics startups through an intensive, advanced curriculum specially designed to accelerate their growth.

Open Robotics won an RBR50 Robotics Innovation Award in 2021 for its Robotic Middleware for Healthcare. Built on ROS 2, RoMi-H enables interoperability between robotics vendors by creating uniform communication and monitoring across heterogeneous fleets of robots, sensors and enterprise information systems. The system was recently deployed at Changi General Hospital in Singapore.
