Isaac Sim Built on Omniverse¶
Isaac Sim built on NVIDIA Omniverse™ leverages the NVIDIA Omniverse Kit and has been enhanced with robotics-specific extensions. It provides access to NVIDIA PhysX and RTX ray-tracing technologies for high performance, photo-realistic robotic simulations.
Isaac SDK integrates with Isaac Sim built on Omniverse through the Robot Engine Extension. Sensor data and drive commands are exchanged though TCP. Isaac SDK provides navigation and manipulation sample applications that work with Omniverse.
Download Isaac Sim built on Omniverse from Isaac Sim Downloads and follow instructions there to set up the simulator.
The Isaac SDK 2021.1 release requires the Isaac Sim 2021.1 release for simulation.
