ROS for Industrial Robots 101 Python
Introduction to some basic ROS tools to control industrial robots with ROS
ROS for Industrial Robots is a project where the main goal is to bring ROS closer to the industrial robotics world. It is a HUGE project, composed of many packages and tools.
This Course is not meant to make you learn all the things you can achieve with ROS-Industrial, but just to introduce you to some basic concepts you need to know if you want to begin exploring all the ROS-Industrial capabilities.
- Overview of how to create a URDF file for an industrial robot.
- Create a MoveIt! package for your industrial robot.
- Perform motion planning using Python.
