RDP 039: Using Anki Vector robot with ROS with Omri Ben-Bassat
This is Ricardo Tellez, from The Construct.
Today, I would like to dedicate the podcast to all those ROS developers that bought a robot which doesn’t runs in ROS and they would like to. How can you ROSify that robot? How can you make it work with ROS?
Well, the interview of today may be useful for you.
We are going to interview Omri Ben-Bassat from Tel Aviv, a self-taught programmer, hacker and robotics enthusiastic ever since joining the FIRST robotics competition team back in high school. Omri has created the vector-ros package, a package that ROSifies the Anki Vector robot, you know, that super cute small robot made by Anki company. With this package, you can control the Anki robot using ROS programs.
“The vector-ROS package is a project I started to summarize and test all my learning online about ROS”
