Autonomous Mobile Robots is one of the most essential course for a Robotics degree. But the preparation of this course is difficult.
In this free webinar, we are going to show you how to teach this course effectively by using ROS-based robot simulation.

Content outline:

  1. Problems teaching autonomous mobile robots
  2. Learning ROS along mobile robots
  3. Using simulations
  4. Testing mobile robot algorithms
  5. Transferring to real robots
  6. Solving robotics errors
  7. How to develop the teaching material
  • The whole code will be provided to all attendees as a ROSject, containing simulation, notebook with instructions and code.
  • All attendees will receive a 91 pages manual on Exploring ROS with wheeled robots.


  • Change the course from passive listening to active practicing.
  • Move away from a slides based teaching method to a notebook based one, where direct interaction with robots is embedded in the method itself.

Ricardo has 7 years experience building software for ROS based robots including human size humanoids. He is the author of 4 books about learning ROS. He teaches Robotics at the University of LaSalle for the undergraduate program and for the Master. Additionally, he delivers every Tuesday a free ROS Live Class on his Youtube channel, where attendants can learn and practice a ROS subject. He is also the conductor of the ROS Developers Podcast where he interviews every week a ROS expert about how to better program robots with ROS.
