Nvidia extends robotics software to the edge
Nvidia has ported its Omniverse Cloud to Microsoft Azure, increasing access to Isaac Sim, the company’s platform for developing and managing AI-based robots.
The full lineup of Jetson Orin modules, including the Orin Nano, is now available for running the software at the edge.
Building robots in the real world requires creating datasets from scratch, which is time consuming and expensive and slows deployments. Omniverse provides synthetic data generation (SDG), pretrained AI models, transfer learning and robotics simulation to drive down costs and accelerate deployment timelines.

The Omniverse Cloud platform-as-a-service allows developers to scale robotics simulation workloads, such as SDG, and provides continuous integration and continuous delivery for devOps teams to work in a shared repository on code changes while working with Isaac Sim. This is a photorealistic, physically accurate virtual environment that enables global teams to remotely collaborate to build, train, simulate, validate and deploy robots.
The 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.
