Robot Operating System (ROS) is a hardware-agnostic middleware framework that enables communication between various devices. It is an intuitive and modular communication framework that has gained widespread adoption among robot users in the last decade. It offers great benefits in terms of congregating organisations and engineers around the world with an open platform, common architecture, tools, as well as ready-to-use modules to create advanced robotics solutions efficiently and affordably.
ROS-Industrial is an open-sourced project that extends the advanced capabilities of ROS to industrial-relevant hardware and applications. As a Consortium, part of its mission is to accelerate the development and adoption of ROS by providing technical support and training to facilitate the continued adoption in the industry.
The ROS2 Basics course focuses strongly on the Learn-Through-Application approach. Through an intensive 3-day training sessions, participants will be given useful tools to acquire basic ROS2 theoretical concepts outside of class, and during in-person sessions they will be given the opportunity to apply these simple but powerful concepts on a robot for a demonstration use case.
Upon completion of this course, participants would then be able to move onto more advanced modules in the areas of robotic perception, navigation and manipulation to dive deep and learn specialized concepts and create more complex industry-based solutions.
