IEEE RAS: ROS 101 Workshop


I gave an introductory workshop on ROS hosted by IEEE RAS. The workshop went over the basic concepts of robotics and what a robot is. We covered the different components of ROS including:

  • Topics (Publishers & Subscribers)
  • Nodes
  • Actions
  • Services
  • Visualization tools

The workhop concluded with a demo of communicating with and navigating a Turtlebot in simulation.
