ROS Summer School 2014 at University of Applied Sciences Aachen

From Stephan Kallweit


Our first ROS Summer School in 2012 showed that a lot of students and external researchers were interested in mobile autonomous systems, but did not know how to start. Our ROS Summer Schools provide the right starter kit by using a self-developed, low cost robotic hardware and - of course - ROS software. First, we start with some introductory courses, before we tackle the main tasks of mobile robotics, i.e. perception, localization and navigation. Every day these main tasks are implemented on the hardware and tested on our test track, where the mobile systems have to fulfill some predefined tasks, from simple teleoperation to autonomous navigation.

A highlight of the work shop is a competition at the end of the third week: Summer school participants form different teams to design a typical mobile robotic application like indoor/outdoor exploration. All teams use the same hardware controlled by their acquired ROS skills.

The ROS Summer School includes also some leisure activities, such as day trips to Maastricht and Paris, where we also pay a visit to Aldebaran. Last but not least, we have a farewell barbecue at the end.
