[Topics] ISSAC - The Future of Programming Robots

 

[Abstract] Isaac SDK is NVIDIAs software development kit for robotics. At the core of Isaac is the Isaac Robot Engine which allows you to build modular and high-speed robotic applications and easily deploy them to Jetson platforms. Isaac also comes with over 30 GEMs providing solutions for hard robotics problems like navigation or perception algorithms. In this talk, I will give an overview of ISSAC and some use case in robotic.
