Robot Operating System Workshop

Calender Entry


This workshop will be a guided tour through tutorials found on the website. The workshop presentation itself is planned to last about an hour, with open lab time afterwards to get help with any projects.

  The presentation will cover the following topics:

  • Configuring ROS
  • ROS messaging structure and topics
  • Topic publishers and subscribers
  • ROS Services and clients
  • Writing a ROS node
  • Using ROS with an Arduino via the rosserial stack
  • Configuring ROS to work across several systems
  • How to run ROS at boot

Note that installation of ROS is not covered. If you would like to follow along with the demonstrations you will have to have ROS installed on your laptop ahead of time. The full install of ROS is several GB and can take some time. If you need help getting ROS installed there will be ample time after the presentation.

The presentation and demonstrations will all be written in C++. However, ROS also supports Python out of the box and a quick perusal of the tutorials will explain the specific syntax. Examples will be demonstrated on PCs, a Beagleboard, and an Arduino.

After the workshop, the presentation will be available on this website. We will also attempt to record the workshop and get that posted in a relatively timely manner. We hope to see you there and be sure to ask questions!

 Should we bring our own laptops or is this more of a just watch and learn thing?

 It's up to you. If you want to follow along with example code, etc. then definitely bring your laptop. Also, if you need help getting ROS setup, definitely bring it so that we can work that out after the presentation.

 Alright, sounds good. I do have a track meet tomorrow so I'm not sure whether I'll be there on time or not but I'll definitely try.

To those who don't yet have ROS installed. I will be at the lab early tomorrow (~10-12) if anyone wants to follow the examples but needs help installing ROS. Please note that ROS can take an hour or more to install depending on the OS.  Currently ROS is only supported on Ubuntu, but has experiamental versions out for other OS.
