Participants acquire the basics of robot motion sequences and the Robot Operating System (ROS). Based on fundamental communication concepts with robots, they will understand how these can be autonomously localized and navigated in a logistics scenario.
▶ Localization, mapping and motion planning with ROS ▶ Integrating ROS into industrial application fields ▶ Testing the advantages of ROS and ROS-based systems as examples ▶ Application of local and global path planning and collision avoidance ▶ Application in flexible material flow systems with the Robot Operating System (ROS) ▶ Environmental perception of mobile robot systems with various sensor technologies
Group of Participants Engineers and Computer Scientist from the areas of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science
Motivation The Robot Operating System (ROS) has achieved an impressive influence in research and product development. It contains many open source implementations of common robotics functions and algorithms in areas such as perception, knowledge representation as well as planning and control. With mobile and stationary robotics systems as well as underwater robotics or flying drones, there are few limits to the applicability of the software.
Methodology The course takes place on five consecutive days and ends with an exam. Course content is developed and consolidated in interactive lectures, group work, presentations and case studies.
