Docker Image - Documentation

In chapter 2 of the documentation we have the following

2.1 Racing Simulator
To use our environment, you mst first complete a licensing agreement with Arrival. Our environment interfaces with the
Arrival racing simulator via a SimulatorController object which can launch, restart, and control the Arrival simulator.
We recommend running the simulator as a Python subprocess by specifying the path of the simulator in your configuration file in the env_kwargs.controller_kwargs.sim_path field. Alternatively, you can specify that the controller
start the simulator as a Docker container by setting env_kwargs.controller_kwargs.start_container to True.
If you choose the latter, you can load the docker image:
$ docker load < arrival-sim-image.tar.gz

I have downloaded the simulator but I seem to be unable to find the arrival-sim-image.tar.gz

Is this docker image provided? If so where can I find it?

We are checking the version provided to you for the docker image.
Meanwhile, to get you started you can run it locally if you have a Linux setup or you can use a virtual machine using AWS.
For that, it’s easier just to run the bash script in the LinuxNoEditor folder. Keep this running in the background.
Also sharing a template for the controller_kwargs = {
“sim_version”: “ArrivalSim-linux-0.7.0-cmu4”,
“quiet”: True,
“user”: “ubuntu”,
“start_container”: False,
“sim_path”: “–path–/ArrivalSim-linux-0.7.0-cmu4/ArrivalSim-linux-”,

Hey! Thanks for the reply. I already have it running in a local machine but I would like to keep things as clear and hassle-free as possible, that’s why I’m asking about the docker image.
Thanks for looking into it.

Hey! While you are checking the docker image can you please share the specs that are required for the AWS VM?
I am quite new to this and hence require some help in which image to use on AWS to run this.

Hey! I got some problems running in a local machine, can you please share the steps you’ve done to run the things on a local machine?
I am new to all these things and are confused by the instructions.
