Nvidia has expanded its robotics management platform, Isaac Sim, which offers businesses digital twin and simulation technology to trial new robotic designs and procedures before real-world deployment.

“The world’s largest industries make physical things but they want to build them digitally,” said Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang. “Omniverse is a platform for industrial digitalization that bridges digital and physical.”

Under the new update, Omniverse Cloud, which powers Isaac Sim, will be hosted on Microsoft Azure.

The platform enables companies to scale robotics simulation workloads, including the increasingly popular method of synthetic data generation (SDG), allowing companies to create“photorealistic, physically accurate virtual environments” where businesses can build, train, simulate, validate and deploy robots.

Amazon is using Omniverse for its digital twin capabilities, allowing the retailer to optimize, automate and plan its autonomous warehouses with simulations before real-world deployment. Amazon Robotics is also using the platform to improve the capabilities of its latest autonomous mobile robot (AMR), Proteus.

The BMW Group is also currently using Isaac Sim in Omniverse to run scenarios for testing and training AMRs and factory robots.

The announcement was among a series of new product launches and updates by Nvidia to improve the accessibility and reach of digital tools across industries.
