Schedule

  • Speakers: Roger Barga, GM for AWS Robotics; Brian Gerkey, co-founder of Open Robotics

    In this session, Roger Barga, GM for AWS Robotics, and Brian Gerkey, co-founder of Open Robotics will walk attendees through the latest in cloud robotics and open source development, including insight into the ROS/Gazebo Ignition release roadmap. The speakers will discuss the value of using the cloud, open source frameworks, and simulation to help builders increase development velocity, test more accurately, and get robots to market faster.
  • Speakers: Ray Zhu, Lead Product Manager for AWS Robotics & Sam Gundry Lead AWS RoboMaker Engineer for AWS RoboMaker 

    Simulation testing can help make robotics development faster, safer, and higher-quality. A simulation world is the 3D virtual environment where a robot and its behaviors are simulated to improve robotics testing. However, adoption of simulation is often limited by the time, cost, and specialized skills needed to build 3D simulation worlds and the objects that live within them. In this session, we will discuss approaches to simplify the process of getting a Gazebo-based simulation world up and running. Attend this session to learn how you can accelerate world creation, so you can shift more testing to simulation environments to increase your testing velocity, and expand your test coverage to improve your robotics application quality.
  • Speaker: Katherine Scott, Developer Advocate for Open Robotics

    ROS, or Robot Operating System, is a set of open source libraries and tools for developing robotic applications. Recently, ROS 2 Foxy Fitzroy was released, the first major stable release of ROS 2. ROS 2 was built from the ground up for performance, security, and reliability. These features, along with ROS’s massive ecosystem of hardware and software packages make it a great choice for commercial robotic applications. This talk will cover the core capabilities of ROS 1 and 2 and the value of the ROS open source ecosystem. Specifically, we'll give a high-level history of ROS and discuss how that history has shaped ROS's architecture. We'll also cover the community resources available to help developers accelerate robotic application development.
  • Speaker: Jeremy Wallace, Senior Solutions Architect for AWS Robotics

    In this session, we will introduce how to use AWS RoboMaker to simulation tests, particularly for fleet simulations with multiple robots. We will deep dive into how RoboMaker simulations work and how to run complex, horizontally scalable simulations. With this approach, customers are able to parameterize and test ROS applications with complex robot interaction scenarios. We will also show how you can automate these robot interaction test cases, and run simulations within a continuous integration (CI) pipeline.
  • Speaker: Levi Armstrong, Engineer for the ROS Industrial Consortium at the Southwest Research Institute

    In industries like Aerospace and Excavator Machinery, large systems are required to automate manufacturing processes like painting, surface-finishing, inspection, and more. The sheer size and cost of the system requires these systems to perform not one operation, but multiple operations, to improve the return on investment. Automating these operations has several challenges related to motion planning, calibration, environment management, user-interface and monitoring. In this session, we will share how to leverage ROS and ROS 2 to solve these challenges and implement complex automation systems for large-cale manufacturing process.
  • Speaker: Mark Sedran, Manager of Simulator Software Engineering at iRobot

    iRobot manages an active fleet of over 5 million robots. In this session, Mark Sedran, Manager of Simulator Software Engineering, will share the challenges of scaling robotics development. He will discuss how iRobot has optimized their testing workflow to quickly deploy software updates to a complex code base, shared across multiple robots types. Additionally, Mark will show how iRobot has used cloud-based simulation alongside physical testing to advance new product development, increase testing coverage, and improve the usability of their product.
  • Speaker: Mike Dooley, CEO, and Philip Case, Senior Robotics Engineer for Labrador Systems

    Labrador Systems is developing a new category of affordable personal service robots to help people live more independently. To achieve this goal, the company is leveraging a range of AWS services, ROS modules and 3rd party solutions. In this session, you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at how these technologies work together from the Edge to the Cloud and back so that their robot can physically bring critical items within reach of individuals in everyday settings.
  • Speaker: Anabell St Vincent, Principal Solutions Architect for AWS Robotics

    In this workshop, we will deep dive into how AWS RoboMaker simulation works and discuss common test cases robotics companies use to ensure their code is production ready. In the first half of the workshop, you will place a robot in a small warehouse world and learn how to run simulations in AWS RoboMaker. In the second half, you will implement a test case in a robot application to validate the expected outcome from the robot. 

    Learning Objectives:
    • Introduction to AWS RoboMaker Simulations
    • Learn to run concurrent simulations using AWS RoboMaker
    • Learn how robotics companies are using RoboMaker to test code before deployment
    • Learn how to add additional robots to the world and write your own test cases
