PRR Chapter 1: Introduction

Our Environment

  • A variety of robots, all running ROS
  • Turtlebot3, Turtlebot2, and “Mutant”, “Alien”
  • Ubuntu Linix 18.04
  • Robot itself is already setup
  • Use the SDD provided or your own, which we will set up for you!
NB These series of notes were written by me following the outline and content of "Programming Robots With ROS" by Quigley, Gerkey and Smart. In my opinion it's one of the best ROS books for students. It has a great sequence on the concepts and then gradually more challenging projects. It uses Python which is ideal for students. The only problem is that it is a little old and so some of the instructions don't work anymore. I highly recommend this book.
