First off - for those unfamiliar with my Hadabot effort - Hadabot is a low-cost robot kit for software engineers, students, hobbyists, and makers to learn ROS 2 and robotics.
The Hadabot ROS 2 Nav2 software stack is designed to run from a number of Docker containers on a local laptop/computer.
The details will be presented at ROS World 2021 (via the “ESP32 microcontroller robot with Navigation 2 ROS 2 running in the Cloud” talk), as well as published in a detailed blog post in the upcoming weeks.
But in the meantime, we published a “quickie” blog post welcoming readers to follow the README to run the AWS RoboMaker ROS 2 Nav2 demo for your own ESP32 Hadabot robot kit, preview our source code, and more importantly… ooo-n-ahh over the video demonstration.
As usual, we always welcome you to learn / stay in touch with Hadabot:
I’m also looking to work with CS / robotics professors to put together a more structured robotics syllabus using the Hadabot kit. If you are a professor and/or know of one who’s interested in a low-cost kit for their classroom, would love to connect!
As usual, love to hear feedback, suggestions, encouragements (discouragements).
Thanks and happy building!
