Language - English
There are many courses on ROS which provide good insights on theoretical aspects and building Robots in simulation. But, in this course, we will be discussing how to build a low-cost ROS-powered autonomous robot at home from scratch. Step-by-step instructions will be given in detail on how to build the Autonomous Robot.
This course covers lessons on how to physically build a customized Robot including elements like Mechanical design, Electronic circuit assembly, software configuration, ROS navigation stack integration, Arduino integration, Software simulation, real-world navigation, and a sample delivery application
By the end of this course, you will be able to achieve the following:
Design and build your customized physical robot with autonomous navigation capability
Create a map of your house using the lidar scanner of the robot
Command robot to go to any accessible location on the created map
Interact with the robot using a mobile app, joystick, keyboard, push-button, or remote computer
Monitor robot updates via LCD, mobile app, sound, and status LEDs
Automate delivery of small payload and return to home base
This course is for anyone interested in Robotics who wishes to learn about autonomous navigation in robots and build a low-cost ROS Powered robot platform.
Everything you need to know about building this robot would be explained in this course. A basic understanding of python programming language, ROS basics, Arduino basics, and a little bit of 3D printing knowledge would be handy.
