Interactive learning with ROS: The new course in RWTHJuypter

January 16th, 2023 | by


We are pleased to present our latest ROS course, which is integrated as JupyterHub under RWTHJupyter. This course offers an interactive way to learn and deepen the basics of ROS (Robot Operating System).

ROS is an open source framework that allows developers to simplify the control of robots and their sensors. It provides a set of tools and libraries that make it possible to simplify the communication between the different components of a robot and speed up the development of applications.

Our course covers the main topics required to work with ROS. These include using ROS nodes, topics, services and actions, using ROS libraries such as tf (transform library) and moveit (motion planning library), and developing your own ROS packages. Working with different robot platforms is also covered.

Special emphasis is placed on the use of Jupyter notebooks to make the course interactive and vivid. This allows students to complete the examples and exercises directly in the course environment and see the results immediately.

We would like to thank Quantstack for their support in developing the course and their developments on JupyROS. By using Jupyter notebooks and JupyROS, we have been able to create an intuitive and user-friendly environment that makes learning ROS quick and easy.

We hope that our ROS course will be useful for both beginners and advanced developers and look forward to welcoming many participants.
