This episode is dedicated to all those pioneers that are building industrial applications with ROS2. That is a tough position to be because there is a lot of uncharted territory. It is very hard to get results. That is for the really brave ROS Developers. You are making ROS2 a reality in industry. Thank you for moving forward the frontiers of ROS2. This episode is dedicated to you.
Today we are going to talk with some guys from SWRI and ROS-Industrial consortium that have just done that: built hybrid applications with ROS1 and ROS2 on industrial robots.
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 Joseph Schornak and Jorge Nicho. They are research engineers at Southwest Research Institute in charge of software development for robotics systems in industrial environments. They are here today to talk about a hybrid ROS1 and ROS2 system for industrial robots that they have built.
