Free AWS RoboMaker workshop to give robotics engineers hands-on experience

BOSTON — On Tuesday, June 4, 2019, engineers and customers can participate in a free workshop to learn how to use AWS RoboMaker to develop robotics applications. Amazon Web Services will be hosting the AWS RoboMaker Immersion Day here leading into the Robotics Summit & Expo.

In this all-day AWS workshop, attendees can learn about robotics and machine learning within Amazon, get an introduction to working with the Robot Operating System (ROS), and get hands-on experience with RoboMaker. There will even be a team challenge to build a machine vision application and deploy it to a physical robot to complete a mission!

Robotics developers will need some base-level knowledge of working with AWS services and/or ROS, as well as a laptop with an active AWS account with administrative privileges.

The AWS RoboMaker workshop will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at Amazon’s facilities at 27 Melcher Street, Boston, MA 02210. Register now to take part in this free workshop.
