WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN CLASS #78

In this class, you will learn how to read Laserscan Data from a sensor of a robot.

Why is it so important to learn this topic?

The Laserscan data is one of the most used data in the world of robotics. Many mobile robots occupy it to be able to have a reference as to the distances to the nearest objects, or simply to measure the distance with respect to some objective. Measuring the distance between the different components that may be in an environment is very important for a robot; for example, it allows you to perform an optimal navigation with its main use of obstacle avoidance, in addition to being able to perform a mapping of the environment where the robot will move.
Many of the mobile robots have these kind of sensors and handle the aforementioned types of data, but how is it possible to work with them? If we need a specific distance between an object and the robot with respect to a specific angle, how can we work on it? Join us for this interesting class that will answer these questions.

In this class, you’re going to use the RosBot by Husarion, a robot with LiDAR, designed to learn and develop ROS projects.

HOW TO JOIN THE CLASS

  • FREE event open for everyone, the only thing you may need to do is “set reminder” on our YouTube channel.
  • We will share the full ROSject (containing robot simulation, notebook with instructions and code) with all the attendants at the beginning of the class. Remember to be on time.
  • In Live Classes, you will practice with the instructor at the same time, with the provided free ROS material.

If you missed the class, you can find the ROSject files and full-code used in the class at the Robot Ignite Academy: https://www.robotigniteacademy.com 1
