  • CONTROLLING MOBILE ROBOTS BY ROS

    Controlling Mobile Robots by ROSContent: 
    Robotics it is called to be one of the greatest technological and social revolutions of the future or maybe we are already facing this revolution nowadays. Think about drones, self driving cars, autonomous robotic cleaners, 3d printers, space explorers...

    This summer course is intended to provide a global vision how to control Mobile Robots using ROS (Robot Operating System). Robotics is a multidisciplinary field, requiring knowledge about mechanics, electronics and computer science.

    This course offers a theoretical point of view of all this concepts, as well as practical. During the course a Mobile Robot Platform will be programmed by using  Python, ROS and Raspberry Pi.

    Practice: Microrobot construction and contest.
