ROS-based Robot


ROSbot is an autonomous, open-source robot platform based on ROS developed by Husarion.

With the ROSbot robot simulation, you can do similar stuff without the risk of damaging the real version. You can use it to test any algorithms, such as Robot Navigation, Motion Planning, Object detection. Once you have your code working in the simulation, you can directly execute it in the real ROSbot robot, with minimal to no changes!

LIVE Class – ROSbot Programming

In this class, you will learn how to program the ROSbot by Husarion.

Using the ROSbot, you will create a map and navigate within it, using all the necessary parameters or info of the ROSbot in the files, in order for it to work properly both in a simulation and in an environment with the real robot.

LIVE Class – Send Navigation Commands Programmatically

You probably know how to send navigation goals to your robot using Rviz. But how can you control the navigation goals of a robot from within your own program?

In this live class, we will learn how to build simple Python programs to set the initial location of the robot in the map, and send the robot to a given location through the ROS Navigation stack. We will start from an already working navigation system with a ROSbot (map included, localization running and move based configured). Then we will build our own program that sends goals to move the robot around the space autonomously, without having to manually interact with it.

LIVE Class – Make Your Robot Patrol An Area

How to make a robot move around an indoor area, following a fixed path, while avoiding unexpected obstacles?

In this Live-Class, you’ll learn how to create a ROS program that uses the ROS Navigation stack to make a robot patrol an area!

Patrolling means that the robot is going to move around an area making a kind of fixed path. This can be very useful for tasks of security inspection, stock analysis or cleaning spaces. In those cases, the robot usually has to move in a fixed path everyday while it is doing at the same time another task (for example, in the case of security inspection, the robot has to identify if there is an intruder, or in the case of cleaning spaces, the robot has to clean all the ground it is moving through).

In the class, we’ll define a procedure to capture the main points of the trajectory that the robot has to follow. Then, we will create a ROS program that calls the ROS Navigation Stack with those points, making the robot follow them in an endless loop.
