ROS 2 – Autonomous Platforms

This series will start with an introduction to ROS 2 and hands-on Python ROS 2 programming deep dive based on the UW Open-Source MusHr.io reference project. Our end goal is to convert MushR’s ROS 1 code to a fully operation ROS 2 operating stack.

UPDATE 11/22/2020: Lets starts looking at SlamToolBox and how it complements the Navigation 2 on Ubuntu 20.04 ROS 2 Foxy (See you Next Week …)

UPDATE 11/15/2020: Starting Deep Dive into ROS 2 Launch system using as sample TurtleBot3 Nav2 demo walk thru (See you Next Week …)

UPDATE: We are moving Up the software stack with a deep dive on Nav2 and Behavior Trees.

UPDATE: After our initial walk thru of the ROS2 tutorial we are moving towards an intro to the Navigation stack & gazebo based Simulation in ROS 2 using TurtleBot 3 as an initial demo.

Hope to see yall only Sunday. But meanwhile check out our new public repo and don’t hesitate in jumping in and contribute your C++ Python ROS contributions.
