Overview

From household helpers such as vacuum cleaners to autonomous cars, robots have the potential to become omnipresent in our daily lives. In this 2-day course, participants will learn what robots have in common and how they tick internally. This is an introduction to Robot Operating System (ROS), which is the glue that holds all components such as sensors, computational capacities and actuators (motors) together, allowing robots to perform tasks.
