[LIVE Class] Robot Exploration: How Can a Robot Create a Map Autonomously

ROS Developers LIVE-Class #65: [Robot Exploration] How Can a Robot Create a Map Autonomously

Sep 17, 2019 @ 6pm - 7pm CEST


In class #65, we will learn how to apply Frontier Exploration package to make an exploration of an unknown environment.

Why Exploration?

Most of the time you have to put a robot into an unknown environment to work, not always you’ll have a map with obstacles inside it. Sometimes you can have an environment that is changing continuously.

In both cases, exploration is a good option to navigate and map your environment at the same time and one of the most common packages of exploration is Frontier Exploration.

In this Live Class, let’s learn how it works and what it needs to work properly. GO AHEAD!
