Using the ROS2 Control Framework, robotics developers can easily customize, scale, and extend an entire robot control system by changing its decoupled components and seamlessly switching back and forth between real robots and simulations.
What you’ll learn
This training teaches you how to interconnect sensors, actuators, and controllers using ROS2 Control and implement end-to-end control loop feedback mechanisms for precise motion control using ROS2.
At the end of this training, you will know how to set up and launch a complete, featured, robotic control system.
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.

Real Robots Used
You will be using the following real robots throughout the training
UR3e Robot Arm with OnRobot Gripper
Simulated Robots Used
You will use several robots in simulations and others in reality. This will allow you to see the flexibility of ROS2 with different robotic platforms.
Differential drive robot
Solo 8 Robot
What You Will Learn in 3-Day
- Linux for Robotics
- Basic Python and intermediate/advanced C++ programming knowledge
- ROS2 Basics
- URDF for Robot Modeling
- Use Google Chrome or Firefox browser.
- Any operating system is valid. It is not necessary to have Linux.
Unit 1: Gentle introduction to control, ros2_control, and practical exercises to demonstrate the courses learning objectives.
Unit 2: Step by step, learn to configure a basic ros2_control pipeline for a simulated robot. This unit covers robot description files, configuration files, and launch files.
Unit 3: This unit is devoted to implementing ros2_control on real robot hardware. Learn how to write a simple custom hardware interface for a robot by showing the required steps involved in a generic example. The unit keeps things simple, but you will learn enough to demonstrate the various stages of this process. It includes hardware-interface source code files and plugin registration files.
Unit 4: This unit is a real-life implementation of a custom hardware interface showing all the details specific to such a task. The unit covers vendor libraries, hardware-interface source code files, and plugin registration files.
Unit 5: This unit explores the types of controllers already included with ros2_control and some of the advanced and task-specific types. It contains forward command, position, effort, velocity, joint trajectory, and differential drive controllers.
