About the course
A single week of basic ROS learning in the sunshine city of Barcelona. Ideal to start learning ROS from zero.
Following an exciting week, ROS in a single week course of October was successful concluded.

The Construct presented the topic - ROBOTICS BENCHMARKING WITH ROS at the ROS Conference 2016.
Abstract of the topic:
Benchmarking in robotics is an unsolved issue. Having a benchmarking system for robotics would speed up development of robotics and research since results may be compared against each other in same conditions, and new robotics works may finally build on previous results. The purpose of this session is to describe a framework for a universal benchmarking system for robotics based on Gazebo simulations, where ROS has the central role of becoming the standard of communication between hardware and software.
The Construct present a live tutorial at IROS 2016: Teaching Robotics with Cloud Simulations
This tutorial is about showing how to develop a teaching class of robotics that allows the students practice each one with a robot, and allow the teacher to concentrate on teaching and the student on learning robotics, instead of solving configuration//installation errors.
With the successful completion of the first ROS Intensive Course Week which was hold in the beautiful city of Barcelona and this course will last for 4 weeks.
"A fun and easy way to use ROS" -James Gray | PhD. Student of AI
"The Construct Sim is an excellent tool for learning ROS and robotics in general" -Jorge Gomes|PhD. Student
"It has been very funny to learn with the people of The Construct. Not every day I had the opportunity of commanding a BB-8 around jakku dessert, I really enjoy the course." -Julen Cayero
"Starting from bricks, Let's Construct!" -Alberto Favaro PhD. student of Bioengineering, Medical Robotics Lab.
"Robotics out of the BOX" -Jean Carlo. PhD. student
"The ROS course was incredibly informative, and the instructors were excellent. I would highly recommend any future courses by The Construct team!" -Miguel Duarte. Researcher of Robotics and AI
