What You Will Learn
Learn how to build mobile robot manipulator applications with ROS1 from the ground up with our hands-on training. Our expert instructors will guide you through everything you need to know, including:
- Robot Navigation
- Robot Perception: Object Detection
- Motion Planning for Robotic Manipulators
- Pick & Place Objects with MoveIt
- Robot Behavior Design using FlexBe
- Creating a Complete App that Integrates all Behaviors into a Single ROS App
- Creating a Web Interface for End Users to Use
Our program is held in-person, so you will have the opportunity to work with real robots in a collaborative and immersive environment. Join us today and learn how to turn your concepts into reality.
- In-person instruction from industry professionals
- Hands-on experience with real robots
- Exercises with simulated robots, working along with the instructors
- Complete a real-world project with a real RB-KAIROS+ mobile manipulator
- Access to a supportive community of like-minded learners
At the training, you’ll get hands-on experience with a real RB-KAIROS+ Mobile Manipulator from Robotnik.
Part 1 - Set Up the Navigation System for a Mobile Manipulator
- Create a map of an environment
- Robot Localization
- Path planning with obstacle avoidance
- Send a sequence of waypoints and execute those movements
Hands-on challenge: Make an RB-KAIROS+ autonomously navigate in an indoor environment.
Part 2 - Moving the Arm
- Configure MoveIt for your robot
- Program the moveit_commander to send trajectories to the robot arm
Hands-on challenge: Program the arm to reach any location in its action space.
Part 3 - Do Motion Planning Programmatically
After completing this chapter, you can create a Python program that performs motion planning on your robot.
Part 4 - Grasping the Object
- Object detection
- Pick an object
- Add perception to avoid obstacles
- Visualize the detections in RVIZ
- Create a pick & place task
Hands-on challenge: Make the arm grasp objects from the shelf while avoiding obstacles.
Part 5 - Use FlexBe to Program the Robot Behavior
- Create FlexBe states
- Create an entire state machine that communicates with the robot
Hands-on challenge: Define the behavior of the warehouse robot for a pick & place application.
Part 6 - Design Web Interfaces for ROS robots
- Set up the server in the robot
- Create and run a web page that shows relevant robot information
- HTML and CSS on the web page
- Understand the lifecycle of the web page
- Add an online Joystick to your web page
- Show the robot’s cameras on the page
- Show your custom map on the page
Hands-on challenge: Create a web interface for non-experts to command the robot, and know its status.
Part 7 - Real Robot Project: Make a Full Manipulator Application to Autonomously Clean a Space
Throughout this training, you will build a complete robot app for mobile manipulators that look at and serve objects from shelves in a warehouse environment. The robot will to go to the shelf’s location, look for the object, grasp it, and bring it to the operator’s boxes.
