A Robotics Systems Engineer's Lockdown Robotics Project: A Hands-On Robot Platform for Learning ROS

I recently interviewed Aditya Kamath, a robotics systems engineer, to talk about his latest project – a robot platform to help the next generation of roboticists learn ROS.

I first stumbled on his work when he showed off visualizations of his robots using our team’s robotics dev tool Foxglove Studio, but a deep dive into his excellent blog made me want to learn more about his current projects and his future development plans.


In-progress shots of Aditya’s robotics build AKROS.

It was interesting to get into the weeds of the physical components he used, and how those hardware considerations influenced his development timeline.

@eshu thanks for sharing my work! :slight_smile: I’ve had a great time working with Foxglove Studio and a surprisingly fun lockdown

For those interested, I’ve made some updates to the design and the robot looks like this:

I plan on writing a detailed post on Discourse once I have everything up and running
