Today we are going to learn about the current status of ROS2 Control, you know, the packages that allow us to control joints using ROS topics.
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 Bence Magyar. Bence and I we worked together at Pal Robotics. Now he works as Lead software engineer for FiveAI. But the main reason he is here with us today is because he is the main maintainer of the ROS control packages.
Welcome to the podcast Bence!
