4-Day Beginner workshop on
Robotic 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 four sessions to lead beginners to learn ROS framework and each session will take up 2 hours on weekly base:

Date: August 1, August 5, August 8 and August 12, 2022 (Monday and Friday)

August 1 (Session 1) – VM setup for ROS programming; VS code for remote programming development
August 5 (Session 2)  – ROS nodes and node topics
August 8 (Session 3)  – ROS message and services
August 12 (Session 4) – ROS launch files and parameters; ROS interfacing to robot firmware

Time: 2:30-4:30pm

Venue: Makerspace A, Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing
