Nvidia’s Isaac robot simulations debut on Omniverse [with Video]

Nvidia Isaac Sim on Omniverse

Nvidia has launched a new version of its Isaac robot simulation engine on its Omniverse, which is the company’s metaverse simulation for engineers. The Omniverse is a virtual tool that allows engineers to collaborate. It was inspired by the science fiction concept of the metaverse, the universe of virtual worlds that are all interconnected, like in novels such as Snow Crash and Ready Player One. The project started years ago as a proprietary Nvidia project called Holodeck, named after the virtual reality simulation in Star Trek.
