U.S. e-commerce leader Amazon’s subsidiary, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Monday launched the Cloud-based service, AWS RoboMaker, that will help developers to develop, deploy and test robotics applications.

The new service, which uses the widely deployed open source software Robot Operating System (ROS) , serves as a platform to help accelerate the time consuming robotics development process, Xinhua news agency reported.

“AWS RoboMaker provides an AWS Cloud9-based robotics integrated development environment for application development, robotics simulation to accelerate application testing, and fleet management for remote application deployment, update, and management,” AWS said in a statement.

The service offers Amazon’ s machine learning technologies and analytics that help create a simulation for real world robotics development, such as letting robots perform tedious house chores, distribute inventory in warehouses or inspect pipelines and high-voltage wires in dangerous industrial environments.

“AWS RoboMaker’ s robotics simulation makes it easy to set up large-scale and parallel simulations with pre-built worlds, such as indoor rooms, retail stores, and racing tracks, so developers can test their applications on-demand and run multiple simulations in parallel,” said the company.

Tech giant Microsoft would allow Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa to activate on the lock screen in the next update to Windows 10.

Microsoft’s new update follows changes to Cortana in Windows 10, as it moves to a separate app in the Microsoft Store and away from the built-in search experience in the operating system, The Verge reported on Monday.

By putting Alexa on the lock screen, a Windows 10 PC would be an Alexa smart speaker even when the PC is in sleep mode.

The tech giant plans to implement these changes to Alexa in the code name “19H2” update which is expected to arrive in September.
