task management and monitoring software for autonomous mobile robot (AMR) fleets, as well as additional features for ROS 2 developers.

NVIDIA Isaac ROS consists of individual packages (GEMs) and complete pipelines (NITROS) for hardware-accelerated performance. In addition to performance improvements, the new release adds the following functionality:

Mission Dispatch and Client: An open-source CPU package to assign and monitor tasks from a fleet management system to the robot. Mission Dispatch is a cloud-native microservice that can be integrated as part of larger fleet management systems.

FreeSpace Segmentation: A hardware-accelerated package for producing a vision AI–based occupancy grid in the proximity of the robot to be used as an input to the navigation stack.

H.264 Video Encode and Decode: Hardware-accelerated packages for compressed video data recording and playback. Video data collection is an important part of training AI perception models. The performance of these new GEMs on the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin platform measured at 2x 1080p stereo cameras at 30 fps (>120 fps total), reducing data footprint by ~10x.
