Hey everyone. Several years ago I created a blog/video series discussing taking a ROS prototype to production using snaps and Ubuntu Core. I got good feedback on that series, but a few folks mentioned that the barrier to entry was a little high as it used the Turtlebot 2, which is by no means cheap. As a result, a while ago I began a blog/video series that uses the CamJam EduKit #3 (the robotics kit) which is incredibly inexpensive. It doesn’t have any particularly useful sensors, but it was still a good platform for hobbyists to learn ROS, snaps, and Ubuntu Core in a five-part series. I got off to a strong start, but due to a few internal issues I was unable to finish the series … until now .
Please allow me to present the now-completed blog/video series.
- Part 1: A beginner’s guide to ROS and Ubuntu Core
- Part 2: Introduction to the Robot Operating System
- Part 3: The controller
- Part 4: The driver
- Part 5: Sharing with others
The videos have all been collected into the Your first robot: A beginner’s guide to ROS and Ubuntu Core playlist.
