Hadabot: A ROS2 navigation tf2 tutorial using turtlesim

Hi All,

Read the new Hadabot post where we use turtlesim to give a show-and-tell intro tutorial on ROS 2 Navigation2 and tf2.

All the code runs from within a stack of Docker containers. The coding, compilation, execution, and the running of rviz and turtlesim are all done through a web-browser using a browser-based VSCode and VNC environment.

For those unfamiliar with my Hadabot effort - Hadabot is a super-low cost robot kit for software engineers, students, and makers to learn ROS 2 and robotics.

The Hadabot runs off an ESP32 microcontroller board (running MicroPython), is easy to set up, and leverages Docker to sandbox the ROS 2 install libraries from your host system. The user interfaces, including an online VSCode, all run on in the web browser to ensure a consistent user experience.

Two ways to learn with Hadabot:

  1. Purchase a Hadabot kit.

  2. Sign up to our email list to stay in touch via the Stay in Touch button.

As usual, love to hear feedback, suggestions, encouragements (discouragements).

Thanks and happy building!
Jack “the Hadabot Maker”
