Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a well-known innovator in outer space, particularly in its search for “life out there”. JPL is now innovating in the physical space to improve “life here”. AWS IoT is critical to their innovations. See a re:Invent preview about how JPL, as an early adopter of AWS IoT, has prototyped voice control to ask questions of the room, the budget, or the system. They’ve also used it for controlling lights and sound to detect cyber security threats, rapid prototyping of robots, low-cost virtual windows to the outside, and much more. The results have been excellent. JPL will demonstrate and talk about these prototypes, including what worked and what didn’t. They will also share the promise integrated serverless computing holds.
