Gazebo on AWS?

Has anyone used AWS to run ROS/Gazebo? I’m completely new to AWS, but since I’ve had issues installing ROS on my MBP and with using Gazebo in Docker, I decided to try it out.

A few questions:

  • Is it possible to run a full ROS/Gazebo environment on AWS using a Ubuntu 18 image? I don’t mind paying for the service.
  • I was looking at RoboMaker and it looks interesting. But for creating a basic sim in Gazebo… is there any reason to use it over an Ubuntu 18 image?

I’m looking to simulate an Actobotics Nomad chassis with a few sensors such as LIDAR, ultrasonics, a camera, and IR.
