Why run robotic simulations in a cloud environment?

Compared to running simulations on your local workstation, having a cloud simulation environment offers a few important benefits: 

  • Reduced and simplified setup time, Asimovo offers a well-integrated, fully configured simulation environment. No need to handle the complexity of managing ROS-versions, Gazebo’s development schedule, integrating drone flight-controllers, etc.
  • Our selected, web-based UI components offer access to your simulations and their results, from anywhere in the world through your web browser. This includes access to the file system and to the CLI tooling.
  • The easy web-based access to the simulations allows for effective demo-ing of your robot, bridging the gap between development and sales. It provides opportunities for early showcasing your work to potential customers.
  • You can easily run multiple simulations in parallel, comparing their results, and reducing your test and prototype phases of the project.

If you are missing anything, let us know, and we will add it to our roadmap.

How does cloud simulation benefit my robotic development process?

Compared to developing only on your local machines, having cloud based collaboration and simulation means it is easier to collaborate on projects and align around development challenges. Projects are also proven to have higher quality results and less rework. This in turn means that projects are delivered faster. 

Through the easy sharing of your work within your teams and/or a larger (open-source) community, you can gain the benefit of having many users provide you feedback on your work.

What are Asimovo Assets?

The Asimovo Asset is a packaging and deployment format for all simulation resources used within the Asimovo Cloud Platform. This includes robots, environments, control systems, sensors, and scenarios.

You can upload and download your own assets at anytime. These always belong to you and can only be accessed and used by you. You can choose to share them in a project and/or add to a public Asimovo library if you want to give access to others. The choice is yours

How to upload your own assets in Asimovo Platform? Check out how here  

How do I upload my files into Asimovo?

Your assets is yours. Only you can access and edit anything that you upload to the Asimovo platform.

You can work as you have always worked, and upload and download as often as you want. 

Assets are stored in your private cloud data space. Only you and those you give access to can see what is in your private projects or libraries.  

If you want to open source your assets, and allow others to access, download and edit; you can also save your assets to a public Asimovo library .

The potential sharing of your assets requires your explicit approval and manual activation.

Check out how to upload your own files here

What does it mean to share any of my assets?

The Asimovo Cloud Platform allows you to share your assets with specific people, with designated groups of people (e.g. with your company), or be made publicly available.

Sharing means that the asset is made available in Asset Libraries accessible only by the designated people associated with the Library. For example, there is an Asset Library associated with your workspace, to which you can invite other users. Similarly, there is a public Asset Library, for any assets you choose to share publicly.

How do I protect my IP when using the Asimovo Cloud platform?

Your stuff stays yours.

You have full control over how public or private you want your projects and assets to be.

What tools do I have access to as part of the Asimovo platform?

Our Freemium offers supports all of the latest versions of ROS tools. These include a 3D viewer of Gazebo. where you can run all of your simulations and use a 3D viewer to see what is going on. 

You should be able to use all your standard ROS based tools. Paid services provide support for different releases and versions for different projects. You should be able to open the different tools as part of your project.

If you are missing anything, let us know, and we will add it to our roadmap.

What simulation environments can I choose from?

Many of the standard Gazebo simulation environments are available via the Asimovo platform.

We also have members who have added additional worlds or features into worlds. You can review the options in the environments asset library when you set up your project.

Or upload your own world at anytime.

Access to additional 3D simulation environments is available as part of the paid services

How long does it take to set up a project?

You can set up a project in just a couple of minutes. There are standard components and environments available for you to use, or you can upload parts or whole projects.

The first time you set up a project there are onboarding wizards and quick start tips, so you can go deeper into the parts of the platform that are new to you to better understand the powerful features that are available to you.

Check out our 8-minute demo to see how fast you can set up a project.

How do I invite others to my project?

As part of a project set up you can invite team members. You, as the project owner, can give roles (eg read only or edit) to the other members.

What versions of ROS do you support?

Our Freemium service supports all of the latest versions of ROS.

As a paid user, the power of our cloud projects means you can set up your project with whatever version of tools and ROS you want.

For example, many people like to archive their earlier ROS projects, before converting their local machines to ROS2

Can I archive my ROS projects in asimovo so I can migrate my local machine to ROS2?

This is a great use case for using Asimovo.

As a paid user you can upload your projects so they are always set up and ready for someone to use. You can demo at anytime. Your local machine can only have one set up while Asimovo can house your projects in a way they are always ready to be worked on.

Can you help me convert my robot that uses ROS1 to ROS2?

Yes. As a paid user you can set up two projects, one with each version of ROS

I want to add a Lidar or Camera to my robot, how do I do that?

When you set up your project you can pick from standard set ups, components and parts or you can upload your own. If you have a robot CAD model already you can use that and then add on extra sensors or parts. You can then run a simulation to see.

What are the subscription options for an Asimovo account?

While using Asimovo and running simulations, you use data storage and simulation credits. The platform plans to support four types of subscription:

  • Freemium: You are allocated one workstation. You can access the basic asset libraries including hardware components and simulation environments. You also have the ability to set up projects with initial simulation credits, as well as store projects and their results.
  • Essential: This plan contains everything that is included to the Freemium plan. Additionally, you will be able to work in teams up to 10 members, have access to additional ROS distributions and gain 1000 simulation credits.
  • Core: This plan contains everything that is included in the Essential plan. Additionally, you will be able to work in teams up to 50 members, have access to new libraries, assets as well as a full scenario planner. With this plan you will gain 4000 simulation credits, be able to run multiple simulations in parallel and have dedicated robotics support at your reach.
  • Enterprise: This plan contains everything that is included in the Core plan. Additionally, you will be able to customize your package based on your team and business requirements and request tool integrations or custom assets builds. You will be able to collaborate features, integrate deeper into your organization’s existing tools and setup and have a dedicated full-support package tailored to your needs.
I have hit the limits of the Freemium service how do I upgrade to a paid account?

The Freemium service helps you get started and set up and share projects. However there are limitations in the number of simulations you can run, and the storage yo have for your projects.

 Once you want to do more simulations you need to upgrade to a paid service. There are a number of different options depending on the size of your team and the number of simulations you want to run.
At the moment, just indicate that you want to upgrade and we will contact you to set up the payment.
