RDP 008: Building Accessible ROSbots With Jack Pien

ROSbots robots with Jack Pien

Written by Ricardo Tellez


In this episode, Jack Pien will talk about how to use accessible robots based on ROS and OpenCV to learn robotics. Those robots are called ROSbots and Jack is the creator of them.

ROSbots come with ROS and OpenCV installed on a Raspberry Pi onboard the robot, ready for the user to create applications for it using the camera and the motor.

The purpose of those robots is to provide hackable robots, on which you can put your hands on, and implement all those robotics algorithms that you study.

Selected quote to from the interview

The vision with the ROSbots is to have a set of software bundles/lessons that you can use to run academic concepts of robotics on the robot

5 Mistakes Robotics & ROS Teachers Make

Last week, a colleague of mine asked me for advice on how to teach ROS at university because she is going to start delivering a ROS class next month. Then I decided to record this video with 5 mistakes I have made in the past while teaching ROS at the university. I hope that this video is useful for you and helps you avoid the mistakes that I made so you can start delivering ROS classes smoothly.
