ROSCon2022 Workshop: Hands-on with Mini Pupper, the miniature, legged, ROS robot

Hi Everyone,

I’d like to sync the Mini Pupper workshop status here.
Title: Hands-on with Mini Pupper, the miniature, legged, ROS robot
Speakers: Sachin Guruswamy(Luxonis), Daisuke Sato, Nisshan, Afreez Gan(Mini Pupper) updating…
Summary: Mini Pupper is the ROS, open-source robot dog platform that supports ROS SLAM, Navigation, and OpenCV AI features with Lidar, camera sensors at a low-cost price. It’ll make robotics easier for schools, homeschool families, enthusiasts, and beyond. In this workshop, you can not only play Mini Pupper but also know how we design it.
This is a hands-on workshop. Bring your laptop and let’s enjoy the ROS robot together. You will enjoy at least the below things(maybe update ),
(1) Hands-on Mini Pupper ROS simulation.
(2) Hands-on object following feature based on deep learning with a single camera.
(3) Hands-on OpenCV OAK-D-Lite 3D camera AI features on Mini Pupper.
(4) Hands-on using Scratch to play ROS Mini Pupper for Children.

The below pictures come from Amazon 2022 re: MARS workshop(JUNE 23, 2022 | LAS VEGAS, NV) for your reference, we’re trying our best to do it better this time. :grinning:

Happy for the greater stage of mini pupper!
Are there any online stream or meeting for this workshop? I’m here in Shanghai, China, very interesting at this little robot, but I’m not convenient to travel to Kyoto. Is there any other way to participate in your presentation?

Many thanks for your attention.
The workshop will follow all the ROSCon official rules, will double confirm whether there is some online know-how, and give final confirmation before the end of Sep.
Best,

Hi,
I am attending this workshop at ROSCon.
I just wanted to ask if there are any pre-requisites, yet.
