Warning: This article contains software that can speed up Robotic Simulation tenfold. After months of development by our awesome engineers at Robotic Simulation Services, we've launched our flagship software, ZeroSim. ZeroSim is a robotics simulation engine built on the easy-to-use Unity 3D development platform and the power of the Robotics Operating System (ROS). Combining the… Continue reading ZeroSim: Our New Robotic Simulation Software
The biggest reason our clients want us to create a robotic simulation for them is that getting access to an actual robot while developing is difficult at best and almost impossible at worst. What's even more challenging is getting everyone in the same room to work on the robot. Especially if your team is spread… Continue reading How To Create a Robotics Control System
We were approached by a client in 2020 to help them create a digital twin of their robotic research facility in San Jose. In order to gather the necessary data to create the digital twin, we captured a point cloud of the space. The client researches many different kinds of robots, including AMR (Automated Mobile… Continue reading Point Clouds: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
Digital Twinning is creating an electronic or a virtual version of a real-world thing and keeping them in sync in real-time. That applies to more than just robotics. An example of a digital twin could be seen in self-driving cars. Self-driving cars can benefit from having a digital twin (virtual simulation) of the environment they're… Continue reading What Is Digital Twinning
What is Gazebo simulation? Gazebo is an open-source 3D robotics simulator. Gazebo simulated real-world physics in a high fidelity simulation. It helps developers rapidly test algorithms and design robots in digital environments. They've branded themselves as "robotic simulation made easy," but there are many tools out there that are much easier to use and help… Continue reading ROS Gazebo: Everything You Need To Know
NVIDIA Isaac SDK is the first open-source Robotic AI Development Platform with Simulation, Navigation, and Manipulation. It’s a robust platform that helps you build smarter robots. NVIDIA Isaac SDK heavily relies on AI. As they put it: “AI makes it possible for robots to perceive and interact with their environments in novel ways, enabling them… Continue reading NVIDIA Isaac: Everything You Need To Know About NVIDIA’s New Platform
Robotic simulation is a type of simulation that helps developers create physical robots without physical limitations such as resources, machines, space, and so on. In this way, robotic simulation saves a lot of time and money because it allows people to test how robots work without huge investments. Developers and designers use these simulations to… Continue reading Robotic Simulation: The Definitive Guide
How using simulation and digital twins lowered development costs by an order of magnitude A recent report by Market Study Report, LLC projects that the digital twin market will surpass $20 billion by 2025. What explains the growth? The government of Singapore, for one example, is spending over $73 million to build a “data-rich digital… Continue reading What Are Digital Twins, and Why Are They Important?
