LAST CALL: In-person ROS2 Industrial Training in Barcelona

Get ROS2 Industrial Ready: ROS2 Basics + ROS2 Nav2 + Manipulation with Movelt2

Dear ROS developers, understanding how ROS2 works is becoming a MUST.

ROS2 is expected to fully replace ROS1 by 2023. The Galactic distribution released in May 2021 shows ROS2 is very mature and ready for real-world applications.

In this five-day ROS2 training, learn how to program robots with ROS 2 Galactic, including navigation and grasping.

Participants will practice with robot simulations and then with real robots to test their programs live.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • Creation of ROS2 packages
  • Management of the new Colcon universal building system
  • Topic publishers and subscribers in ROS2 Python
  • Nodes management: life cycle, executors and callback groups
  • Services and actions
  • Hybrid application with ROS1 and ROS2
  • Use of debugging tools in ROS2
  • ROS2 Mapping
  • ROS2 Localization
  • ROS2 Path Planning
  • ROS2 + DDS
  • Create and configure a MoveIt2 package for a robotic arm
  • Perform ROS2 Motion Planning & Grasping

AT A GLANCE

Prerequisites

  • Knowledge of Python Programming language
  • Basic understanding of Linux Ubuntu Operating System
  • Knowledge of ROS1 (recommended but not required)

Language : English
Programming Language : Python

REAL ROBOTS USED

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

  • ROS developers that want to transition to ROS2
  • Researchers focusing their research on ROS2
  • Engineers or CTOs who want to build scalable robotics products, faster.
