This course is created in collaboration with ROS-Industrial Asia Pacific Consortium that is promoting the next generation of robotic products and solutions, supporting the robotics industry and community in Asia Pacific with workshops, events and training related to ROS.

Course Objective

The course provides participants with the state-of-art skills required to setup a ROS platform and configure various functions of the ROS. They will have hands-on experience in using Linux (Ubuntu) and the advanced ROS platform.

Besides that, participants are exposed to an extensive use of practical exercises. They will also learn how to integrate the ROS platform into an industrial robot application & the various concepts of robotics such as perception, manipulation and path planning. Upon course completion, the participants will be equipped with the skills to integrate these technologies through the ROS platform.
