ROS Summer School in Aachen (August)

From Stephan Kallweit 

Oops, we do it again! After the very successful ROS Summer School 2014, where we had more than 45 participants from all over the world, we are working again on mobile autonomous robots from the 10th until the 21st of August. The official DAAD (German Academic Exchange Program) Summer School, will provide the right starter kit by using our robotic hardware and - of course - ROS.  We first start with some days of introductory courses, before we tackle the main tasks of mobile robotics, i.e. perception, localization and navigation.

A highlight is a competition, like an urban challenge, at the end of the summer school: Participants form different teams that have the task to design a typical mobile robotic application like indoor/outdoor exploration. They all use the same hardware, powered by their learnt ROS skills.

The ROS Summer School includes also some leisure activities, such as trips to some interesting sights in the region. Last, but not least we have a farewell barbecue at the end.
