This episode is dedicated to all those people that are building business on top of ROS. I mean, people that take existing ROS packages, existing ROS robots, existing ROS applications and integrates all that into a product. A product that sells.
Today we are going to chat with one of those professionals that have started a very interesting business on top of ROS. And I can tell you that the idea is quite original!
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. We start by teaching you Linux for robotics and Python for robotics, and we continue teaching you all the basic ROS concepts required to become a master of ROS. We conclude with a course that teaches you how to build your own robot and how to ROSify it, add ROS control to it so you can finally become a ROS Developer.
Now let’s talk with Faysal ElChamaa. Faysal is the main director of RoboAds, a company devoted to the creation of robots that can display ads on screens moving around a space. Faysal explains how he decided to take this idea from a different direction from current advertising robots, how their business model works, how is his company using ROS in the robots and what are the plans of the future for the robot with the COVID pandemia.
Welcome to the podcast Faysal!
