In this episode, Ross explains how he uses ROS to teach foundations in robotics. He tells about how he synchronizes the teaching of ROS with the teaching of robotics subjects, as well as his use of simulations and the importance of debugging tools for ROS. He also explains why he doesn’t use the ROS navigation stack or MoveIt! with his students.

Selected quote:

“On my second lecture on ROS I introduce the Drunk Turtle where I introduce deliverate errors, so students can see what happens when you have different categories of errors.”
