ROS2 Industrial Ready Online Workshop / Oct 25 – 29, 2021

Learn ROS2 Basics + ROS2 Nav2 + Manipulation with Movelt2


Understanding how ROS2 works is becoming a MUST. ROS2 is expected to fully replace ROS1 by 2023. The Galactic distribution released in May 2021 shows ROS2 is very mature and ready for real-world applications.

In this five-day ROS2 training, learn how to program warehouse robots with ROS 2 Foxy & Galactic, including navigation 2 and grasping with MoveIt2.

The online workshop includes training with the real robots, accessing them remotely using the technology we developed for our remote real robot labs.

Participants will practice with robot simulations and then with real robots to test their programs live.
