NVIDIA Expands Isaac Software Access and Jetson Platform Availability, Accelerating Robotics From Cloud to Edge
At GTC 2023, NVIDIA announced that Omniverse Cloud will be hosted on Microsoft Azure, increasing access to Isaac Sim. Isaac Sim is a robotics simulation application and SDG tool that drives photorealistic, physically accurate virtual environments. Powered by the NVIDIA Omniverse platform, Isaac Sim enables global teams to remotely collaborate to build, train, simulate, validate and deploy robots.
Making Isaac Sim accessible in the cloud allows teams to work together more effectively with access to the latest robotics tools and software development kits. Omniverse Cloud gives enterprises more options in the cloud with Azure, in addition to the existing cloud-based methods of using Isaac Sim for self-managed containers, or with using it on virtual workstations or fully managed services such as AWS RoboMaker. With access to Omniverse Replicator, an SDG engine in Isaac Sim, engineers can build production-quality synthetic datasets to train robust deep learning perception models.
NVIDIA is developing across the AI tools spectrum — from computing in the cloud with simulation like Isaac Sim to at the edge with the Jetson platform — accelerating robotics adoption across industries.
NVIDIA Jetson Orin-based modules are now available in production to support a complete range of edge AI and robotics applications. This includes the Jetson Orin Nano — which provides up to 40 trillion operations per second (TOPS) of AI performance in the smallest Jetson module — up to the Jetson AGX Orin, delivering 275 TOPS for advanced autonomous machines.
The new Jetson Orin Nano Developer Kit delivers 80x the performance when compared with the previous-generation Jetson Nano, enabling developers to run advanced transformer and robotics models.
