3-session Advanced Level Workshop on
Robot Operating System (ROS)

The Robot Operating System (ROS) (https://www.ros.org/) is a set of software libraries and tools that help you build robot applications. From drivers to state-of-the-art algorithms, and with powerful developer tools, ROS has what you need for your next robotics project. ROS is de facto industrial standard for developing system for robots. It is important to everyone who wants to work in the field of robotics.

This workshop consists of three sessions of advanced level workshop on ROS framework. Each Session will take up 2 hours on Tuesday and Thursday.
