ROS Summer School 2019 in Pretoria, South Africa

The Registration for the ROS Summer School at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) in Pretoria, South Africa is opened.

The event will take place from 23rd of September till 27th of September 2019. Everyone who is interested in learning ROS is invited to register now! For registration contact Johan Benade <BenadeJG@tut.ac.za> from TUT.

This week of TUT ROS Summer School will cover the following topics of mobile robotics programming:

  • Communication
  • Coordinate Transforms
  • Hardware Interfacing
  • Teleoperation
  • Landmark Detection
  • Localization
  • Mapping

The best part of course is using all this learned knowledge on real Hardware with our mobile Robots.

All is organized by MASCOR and TUT. The ROS Summer School is designed to teach participants about how to get started with ROS; it is created for those who have had an interest in autonomous systems, but didn’t quite know how to get started. With that, organizers recommend students have a basic knowledge of Linux (Ubuntu) and one programming language such as Python or C++.

The ROS Summer School is part of the ROSIN project. The ROSIN project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 732287.

Hi,

Is there any scholarship for this?

Best,

Dear Andres,

I checked with our South African partner and actually we don’t have any scholarship options.

Kind regards,
Patrick

Hi Patrick I couldn’t get details about the application. I have been checking and emailing Johan since.

Does anyone have the contact info for this summer school? Not sure if Johan’s email address is working.

Thanks,

Matt

Hi again,

sorry for my late response. Yes, the E-Mail is valid. I will check again with Johan.

Regards,
Patrick
