7.2.16. Interfacing with NVIDIA Isaac ROS GEMs

Isaac ROS provides individual packages (GEMs) and complete pipelines (NITROS) which include image processing and computer vision functionality that has been highly optimized for NVIDIA GPUs and Jetson platforms. While it is not a requirement to use Omniverse Isaac Sim with Isaac ROS, the two systems are compatible for some GEMs. Please check out the full list of Isaac Sim compatible Isaac ROS GEMs here.


Multi-GPU setup is automatically enabled in Omniverse Isaac Sim, no special steps are needed if running on multiple GPUs.
