InOrbit Brings RobOps to Advanced Robot Simulations Powered by NVIDIA

Switching seamlessly between reality and simulation, InOrbit leverages NVIDIA Isaac Sim platform to help robotics customers anticipate problems before they occur

As the leading provider of cloud-based robot operations (RobOps) software, InOrbit, Inc. proudly announces its collaboration with NVIDIA to blend reality and simulation in robot deployments. This work takes the recently launched InOrbit missions to a new level, enabling end users such as logistics providers to define missions once, execute them in both simulated and real environments, and analyze the results through a single pane of glass, bridging the gap between cutting-edge AI-powered robotics technology and real-world applications at scale.


InOrbit leverages the NVIDIA Isaac Sim™ extensible robotics simulator powered by NVIDIA
Omniverse™ to model complex environments and robot behaviors that closely match the real
world. Created in collaboration with Ekumen, a leading provider of advanced software
development services with deep expertise in simulations, this first-of-its-kind demonstration
available at inorbit.ai/nvidiaisaacsim shows a virtual Robot Space that closely matches the
company's real Robot Space located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Multiple simulated robots
matching their real-world counterparts can be seen carrying out the same exact missions.
Whether it's picking items at a fulfillment center or transporting boxes in a warehouse, the
simulation provides a realistic representation of the physical world.

Third-party logistics companies, manufacturers and retailers can derive actionable insights
and drive continuous improvements in their production workflows, using the best RobOps tools
and data consistently across physical and digital environments. This enables modeling
changes to workflows, orchestrating robots from different vendors, and reducing the costly
impact of traffic jams or collisions.

Partners in the InOrbit Connect™ ecosystem, like OTTO Motors by Rockwell Automation™, can
show a simulation of their robots in a virtual environment that mirrors their customer's facility.
While simulations may not exactly match the real-world operation of the robot, they allow end
users to create a mission, run it in simulation as an approximation of the real robot, and then
deploy that mission to real robots in production. By using a single pane of glass to bridge the
Sim2Real (simulation to reality) gap, customers can anticipate problems before they occur and
continuously improve their operations.

"Simulations already play an important role in the development of robots, such as for use in
reinforcement learning," said Ryan Gariepy, CTO of Clearpath Robotics and OTTO Motors by
Rockwell Automation. "As part of our efforts to advance interoperability, we are glad to
collaborate with InOrbit to show how robots from different vendors can be simulated to help end
users visualize their robot operations in real time before they deploy in production."

"Our collaboration with Ekumen and NVIDIA shows for the first time how simulated and real
robots from multiple vendors can be orchestrated through a single platform, allowing operators
to switch seamlessly between them," said Florian Pestoni, cofounder and CEO at InOrbit.
"This opens up massive opportunities for using data, AI, immersive technology and robotics
together. Welcome to the Roboverse."

InOrbit is a member of the NVIDIA Inception program, which is designed to help startups
evolve through cutting-edge technology, with access to the latest technical resources.
