This episode is dedicated to all those people that building humanoid robots with ROS and need extra care in their control algorithms (otherwise the robot falls down)
Today we have a super very special guest with who we are going to talk about how achieve real time control under ROS.
But before going into that, let me remind you about our ROS online academy. Yes, at the Construct we have created an online academy named The Robot Ignite Academy which contains a ROS learning path for beginners. The path is composed by:
- Linux for Robotics
- Python for Robotics
- ROS Basic Concepts
- Understanding TF
- URDF for modeling robots
- ROS Control
- Build your own robot and ROSify it… and become a ROS Developer!
Some other robotics theory courses included are:
Of course all our courses are based on practice with simulated robots! (theory+practice)
Now let me introduce you Luca Marchionni. What can I say about Luca? Luca and I we have worked together for 5 years at Pal Robotics designing navigation algorithms for the humanoid robots. Then Luca worked on problems of control of closed loop systems, whole body control, walking, motion planning and control for the human size humanoid robots built at Pal Robotics. For that he had to develop algorithms with real time control using ROS. Now Luca is the CTO of Pal Robotics and he is in charge of the technical vision of the company.
