Getting Started with Robot Arms: From 0 to ROS/MoveIt!

Want to learn programming on a popular, industrial quality arm?

In this 1-day workshop, we will give you a fast introduction to programming with ROS and the UR5 arm. No prior experience is necessary, except for some basic programming concepts like for-loops etc. Students will be able to schedule time after the workshop for exclusive access to the arm. These will be 1-on-1 sessions for testing and practice: just the instructor, 1 student, and the UR5.

This workshop will be entirely remote. Join us from anywhere!

ROS1 or ROS2 version?

ROS1, but we can use ROS2 instead if there is enough interest. Motivation is that ROS2 driver for UR is relatively new and still “beta”, compared to the ROS1 driver.
