ROBOT CREATION

URDF for Robot Modeling

Learn how to create the URDF files to control your robot with ROS

Trusted by learners at thousands of top companies and universities:

Course Overview

Understanding robot modeling using URDF

As human beings, we learn from a very young age about our body’s structure: which bones and muscles are part of it, how they are connected between them, how we can move each articulation, etc…

For a robot, though, how can we know all this information? Well, this is exactly what URDF files are going to tell us. URDF files define the structure of a robot, the connection between all the different parts, etc...

In this course, you will understand how URDF files work, and how to create them for any robot.
