Training Overview

With ROS2 quickly becoming the standard (for robotics) and overcoming ROS1, it’s time to learn how to program a robot with ROS2. This intensive online training offers a practical ROS2 learning experience, where you will learn how to create basic programs in ROS2. 

What you’ll learn

  • How to create packages, nodes, topics, services, and actions in ROS2
  • Management of the new Colcon universal building system
  • Topic publishers and subscribers in ROS2 Python
  • Management of nodes in ROS2: life cycle, executors and callback groups
  • Basic use of ROS1-Bridge to communicate ROS2 systems with ROS1 systems.
  • Hybrid applications with ROS1 and ROS2
  • Use of debugging tools in ROS2

How you’ll learn

Students learn through real-time ROS expert-led explanations, along with explanatory notebooks and robotic simulations. The students will complete the exercises with simulated robots, working with the instructor. Each student is assigned their own simulated robots.

  • Understanding DDS in ROS2

    • Learn about the reasons behind using DDS in ROS2 instead of the ROS1 TCP.
    • Learn the basic morphology and features of the default RMW MIDDLEWARE DDS used CycloneDDS.
    • Learn about the three supported DDS implementations in Galactic.
    • Learn how to change the DDS used to then execute scripts using that DDS implementation.
    • Learn about what is the ROS2 Daemon and what’s its relation with DDS.
    • Learn about the need for Quality of Services (QoS) systems in ROS2.

  • ROS2 Actions

    • Learn about the new update in ROS2 having actions their own space.
    • Learn about all the ROS2 Action basic commands, like listing running actions and message types.
    • Create your first ROS2 action server and action clients.
    • Create a custom Action message and use it in a python script to control the movement of the simulated Neobotix Mp-400
