Training Overview

With the arrival of Robot Operating System 2 (ROS 2), it is essential to learn how to make your robot autonomously navigate with Nav2. The ROS 2 Navigation Stack (Nav2) is a collection of packages that you can use to move your robot from point A to point B safely and can be applied in many real-world robotic applications, such as warehouses, restaurants, hospitals, hotel room service, and much more.

In this 3-day training, you will learn how to set up and configure the ROS2 Navigation Stack for any robot (SLAM + Path Planning + Obstacle Avoidance) and you will create an application that interacts with Nav2.

A ROS training that’s highly practical, with support

This course is a live online training, where we teach you in real-time, step-by-step. You will learn on an online IDE website, along with explanatory notebooks and robotic simulations, and practice a lot with simulated robots and with our remote real warehouse robots.


Total time: 22 hours

Every day from 9 AM to 6 PM


Intensive Live Training

Who is this training for?

  • Robotics Developers who want to run their robots with ROS 2
  • Companies that want to equip their team with ROS 2
  • Robotics teams that want to transition from ROS1 to ROS2

Real Robots Used

You will be using the following real robots throughout the training

RB-1 BASE mobile robot

Developed by

Simulated Robots Used

You will use several robots in simulations and others in reality. This will allow you to see the flexibility of ROS2 with different robotic platforms.

Warehouse Real Robot Lab

A small warehouse robot lab running with an RB-1 BASE mobile industrial robot for practicing robotics applications for warehouse and logistics use cases.

Warehouse World

A small warehouse world running with a Neobotix’s MP-400 mobile industrial robot to practice navigation.


What You Will Learn in 3-Day


  • ROS2 Basics. Take this training if you don’t have that knowledge.
  • Basic programming knowledge in Python or C ++.
  • Institution: The Construct in cooperation with Robotnik
  • Programming Language: Python and C++ in Linux
  • Language: English

See below a list of topics covered in this training. Lessons are practical, and you will practice on an online IDE website.

Day 1: SLAM (Mapping + Localization + Path Planning+ Obstacle Avoidance)

Day 2: Behaviors + Plugins + Lifecycle Manager

Day 3: Nav2 Application (create an application that interacts with Nav2)

Topics included:

  • Configure & launch a full navigation stack in ROS2
  • Create a map of the environment using SLAM-Toolbox
  • Provide the map to other applications using a map server
  • Localize the robot using the AMCL particle filter
  • Plan paths from one location to another using the planner for differential robots
  • Make the robot follow a trajectory while avoiding obstacles using the controller
  • Waypoint Follower
  • Configure the costmaps (global and local) for effective obstacle avoidance
  • Use Behavior Trees to control the navigation behavior of the robot
  • Create behavior trees for the bt_navigator
  • Managed nodes work in deep
  • Manage recovery behaviors
  • Manage and synchronize the navigation nodes using the lifecycle manager (programmatically)
  • Programmatically send requests and goals to the navigation system from external nodes using Python3
