InOrbit, in collaboration with Ekumen and NVIDIA, recently announced some exciting advancements in bringing RobOps to simulations. This work leverages the NVIDIA Isaac Sim™ extensible robotics simulator powered by NVIDIA Omniverse™, blending dynamic 3D simulation technology with real-world automation environments, all managed by the InOrbit platform. Bringing these two domains together, effectively bridging simulation to reality and leveraging InOrbit for multi-vendor robot operations, is no easy task. Today we explore the Sim-to-Real gap with InOrbit’s Sr. Robotics Engineer Florencia Grosso (Flor).
Simulations have been a potent tool in robotics for some time now. Companies particularly rely on sims for reinforcement learning to train robots. Effective simulations can help drive continuous improvements in production workflows, orchestrate robots and other technologies, and mitigate the often costly impact of traffic jams. While many robotics companies use simulation tools, nothing provides the dynamic opportunity to visualize robots in such an exciting way as NVIDIA’s Isaac Sim™. Today we’re thrilled to unveil an integration of this powerful simulation tool with the InOrbit RobOps platform.
