In this course, take a deep dive into more advanced ROS2 learning topics.
What You Will Learn
How to create different types of launch files in ROS2
How to work with parameters in ROS2
Threading in ROS2
How to manage callbacks in ROS2
Understand Quality of Service (QoS) in ROS2
Understand DDS in ROS2
Work with Managed Nodes in ROS2
Simulated Robot Used
Neobotix MP-400 Simulation
The MP-400 can be used in more ambitious applications as an autonomous carrier of special equipment or as an experimental system in robotics research, the MP-400 masters almost all tasks, also with full ROS support.
Unit 1: Understanding Launch Files in ROS2
Unit 2: ROS2 Parameters
Learn how to work with Parameters in ROS2.
Topics covered in this unit:
- Create a demo code
- Interact with parameters from the command line tools
- Examine the code
- Load parameters on launch file
- Parameter Calbacks
Unit 3: Managing Complex Nodes
Unit 4: Quality of Services (QoS) in ROS2
Unit 5: Understanding DDS in ROS2
Understand DDS in ROS2 , how to modify it, and how to work with QoS.
What will you learn in this unit?
- Understanding DDS in ROS2
- Basic use of RVIZ2 debugging tools
- view_frames tool
- ROS2 Doctor
Unit 6: Lifecycle Nodes
In ROS2, there are two types of nodes:
- Nodes that inherit from ‘Node()’
Nodes that inherit from ‘LifecycleNode()’
This unit is about the last one: why you need them and how to use them.
What our students think
“I am wholeheartedly grateful for this outstanding opportunity. I wouldn’t have found a better ROS beginner-friendly course elsewhere. Thanks, ConstructSim !“
“I have tried to start learning ROS before and that was so difficult because I didn’t understand how to start, now with these introductory courses I am very excited because I can finally start to enter this world.“
“I really enjoy the practical aspect and learning by doing. I feel like I learn way faster and with a rich understanding.”
