This course is about the fundamental concepts used in ROS (Robot Operating System). This is a course for beginners who wants to start his/her journey in Robotics and becoming a ROS developer. After going through this course, you will understand the terminologies used in ROS, the file structures that are maintained and the basic concepts of autonomous navigation. You will also learn some crucial concepts of how to write the Python codes to run the robot through ROS. After doing this course, your doors to learn the next-level autonomous navigation will open up and you will have a much better insight of fundamental concepts of Robotics. In this course, we will use ROS Noetic and simulation tools like RViz and Gazebo for understanding various concepts of mobile robotics.

 

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understanding of ROS files, file structures and fundamental terminologies.

  2. Knowledge about ROS packages and workspace.

  3. Learning of programming the robots with Python.

  4. Understanding of the structure of Launch files.

  5. Basic navigation concepts like SLAM, gmapping ,etc.

  6. Recording 2D map in simulation using LIDAR sensor data.

  7. Understanding of map parameters.

  8. End-to-end understanding of navigation files and codes used in robot simulation.

What is ROS?

ROS_C_logo.jpg

The Robot Operating System (ROS) 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. And it's all open source.

ROS is not an operating system but a collection of software frameworks for robot software development. ROS contains many open-source implementations of common robotics functionality and algorithms. These open-source implementations are organized into packages. Many packages are included as part of ROS distributions, while others may be developed by individuals and distributed through code-sharing sites such as GitHub.

As per the statistics, 55% of the robots in the whole world will use the ROS framework by 2030. With the technological evolution and development in Robotics, ROS developers are going to be one of the highest paying individuals in the future.

If you want to be a Robotic engineer then ROS is one of the most essential skills you should learn.
