[LIVE Class] ROS Navigation with Multiple Robots

ROS Developers LIVE-Class #64: Launch Multiple Robots in Gazebo - Robot Navigation

OVERVIEW

Learn how to launch multiple robots to do Robot Navigation with ROS.

Why is so important to learn Robot Navigation?

Robot navigation means the robot’s ability to determine its own position by using its odometry and then to plan a path towards some goal location.

In order to navigate in its environment, the robot will required representation, that could be a map of the environment and the ability to interpret that representation.

Navigation can be defined as the combination of the three fundamental competencies:

  • Self-localization
  • Path planning
  • Map-building and/or map interpretation

And those aspects it’s what you’ll see in this class;)

Why it’s important to apply to multiple robots at the same time

although we are accustomed to simulations with only one robot, it is understandable that in real robotics environments it will not be so, and it will be necessary to coordinate between several robots working simultaneously in the same environment

DATE & TIME

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
