Flippy Robots arm makes fries

Miso Robotics is working together with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to begin testing the software powering Flippy 2 and Flippy Lite using AWS RoboMaker. The move to AWS RoboMaker is projected to allow Miso to run up to fifty simulations at once and will help the company turn future prototypes into functional products at a much quicker rate.

"Integrating into AWS RoboMaker has been a gamechanger for us to scale our products and make sure the software and its updates are ready to deploy with units in the field," said Chris Kruger, CTO of Miso Robotics. "We will go from running 12 simulations a month with single units to doing 100 in a night. By testing hundreds of configurations in parallel, we are able to save costs and develop products faster."

When deploying Flippy 2 and Flippy Lite through these configurations, testing will happen via simulation in the cloud. AWS simplifies the process by validating the simulations to build a stable baseline for any new architecture or software updates. Furthermore, comparing the performance of the units in a simulated role to the metrics of those in the field lets Miso track discrepancies and close the gap to ensure stability.

Kruger will present on "How Miso Robotics built an AI enabled Robot Fry Cook" at Amazon re:MARS in Las Vegas on June 22. The breakout session will look at the challenges overcame, and methods used to develop Flippy 2 and Flippy Lite from prototypes to essential products in the kitchens of the future.

Miso Robotics is primarily funded by individual investors and is one of the most successful crowdfund stories in history. With nearly 20,000 shareholders, the company has raised more than $50MM in crowdfunding to date and is currently in their Series E round, which kicked off with a market valuation of $500 million.
