Description

Learn how to use the Robot Operating System (ROS) version 2 platform (ROS2) which is used to program real-world robotics.

From Industrial Robots and Autonomous Cars to Research & Development systems; ROS is the backbone of a wide variety of automated systems.

ROS2 also allows for compatibility with ROS1 systems, so you can integrate your new ROS2 projects with your previous ROS1 systems.

Course Outline:

The course is broken into 7 main sections:

  1. Course Introduction
  2. Environment Setup
  3. ROS2 Overview
  4. Using ROS2 in C++
  5. Additional ROS2 Tools
  6. Robotics Simulation
  7. Advanced Features In ROS2

Section 1 is a general introduction to the course.

In section 2 you will learn how to set up your computer to be able to run ROS 2. This includes utilizing the Ubuntu operating system, installing ROS 2, and introducing you to the code editors we will use in this course.

In section 3 I will teach you at a high level what “tools” are included in the ROS 2 framework, and what each of them does.

You will spend the majority of this course in section 4, learning how to implement all the various ROS2 tools in your very own C++ code.

  • Section 5 will look at some tools which ROS2 provides outside of the coding environment.
  • Section 6 will touch on using the simulation and sensor data visualization tools ROS 2 has to offer.
  • Section 6 will go over the advanced features of ROS 2. This will cover building ROS 2 from the source to utilize tools such as SROS, which allows you to secure your topic data, as well as using the ROS 2 bridge which lets you communicate with ROS 1 Nodes.

We will also be working with the famous OpenCV library to work with image data coming from our robot’s camera.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get to programming, using the new and improved version of the most widely used open-source robotics platform: ROS version 2.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who wants to learn more about the newly developed ROS2 Framework For Robotics Software Development
  • ROS1 Developers who want to learn what new features are available in ROS2 and how to utilize its new API
  • Anyone who wants to learn how to program robots in C++
