The objective of this training program is to provide a quick start
to Robot Operating System (ROS). I will give an overview of ROS and its evolution in the past years after its release. I will unveil the secrets of ROS that makes it a revolutionary solution for developing robotics applications. I will introduce the basic concepts of that allows you to easily explore the capabilities of ROS in building software for robotics. The participant will also develop application for both simulated and real robots. By attending the
18-hour training sessions, the participant will have a full
understanding of ROS and will be able to develop his own applications and programs. We will use python for developing programs.
The Program will contain the following topics:
At the end of this training, it is guaranteed that each participant will be able to:
