Ian Chen (OSRF) Cloudy with a Chance of Simulation

Looking foward to ROSCon 2017 we're highlighting presentations from last year. The ROSCon 2017 registration is currently open.

In this presentation Ian talks about how CloudSim was developed and used to support the DARPA Virtual Robotics Challenge.



The DARPA Virtual Robotics Challenge gave birth to the first version of CloudSim. It provided a centralized platform that facilitated teams of participants from around the world to compete in simulation simultaneously. Since then, various projects have demanded the need for a similar cloud hosted environment for robotics competitions. In this presentation, we reveal a new, redesigned CloudSim that aims to be a generic tool for running robotics software and simulations on the cloud. We present some of its key features including simulation instance sharing, reusable front-end web components, a WebGL visualization client, and security and authentication.
