We’ve started developing a table top / ground ROS robot for use in educational environments. We’d like to hear from educators that really want to teach ROS based robotics, but don’t feel they can because currently available robots are either too expensive, too complicated or too [insert your adjective here].
We’d also like to hear from educators that are teaching ROS robotics but want to broaden what they do, or find alternative platforms.
If you are an educator who offers courses and would like to do so with ROS can you respond to this thread with the one thing that you’d like to see in a educational platform for ROS. If enough people express interest we will do a couple of group calls so we can hear what people would like and make trade-off decisions. Then we will do our best to build what the group wants with open source repos to go along with it!
Please respond with the one thing you’d like to see in an ROS robot platform oriented for education.
P.S. Thanks to Tully and Kat for suggesting this!
