Online Hands-on Training

Learn How to Manage Fleets of Robots with ROS2

A 3-day, online, hands-on training to learn ROS2 and how to use it for multi-robot systems

Trusted by

Overview

From Basics to Practical Applications

With ROS2 quickly becoming the standard for robotics, more systems need to cooperate to deliver robotic solutions.

This hands-on training is a practical intro to using ROS2 to manage multi-robot systems. You will learn how to use this open-source framework, and get hands-on experience using real robots. Ultimately, you will understand better how ROS2 can help you achieve your business goals.

What you will learn

  • Robot navigation in ROS2 using Nav2
  • Build a multi-robot navigation system
  • Fleet management of robots in a common environment using the Open Robotics Middleware Framework (Open-RMF)

How you’ll learn

  • ROS expert-led explanations
  • Perform exercises with simulated robots, along with the instructors.
  • Complete an entire project with the real robotic cafeteria.

Who is this training for?

  • ROS1 users who want to learn ROS2
  • People who want to be ready for new robotics technologies
  • Engineers or CTOs who want to build scalable robotics products, faster

100% PRACTICAL

Practice with Simulated & Real Robots

You will learn concepts in simulation before practicing on real robots.

Perfection Went Above

It was a lot of very useful knowledge and practice! Fleet management was the last part I had to figure out in my project to develop a robot for warehouse logistics, and this training helped me with that. Now I understand how Open-RMF works, know how to configure it, and am able to add it to my own project.
