About the Course

This tutorial is for people who would like to enter the world of Robotics and learn one of the most important tools for every robotics software engineer. ROS was built to spread the culture of collaborative robotics software development, and it has succeeded and built a great community of software engineers who are building ROS packages for almost every problem in robotics. This tutorial will put you on the right way to start in the robotics world and learn how to integrate and create ROS packages. It will be your first step which will help you pursue a career path in Robotics. By the end of this tutorial, you will be able to use one of the most important robotics skills out there which is ROS. Throughout the tutorial, you will learn about ROS history and why you should use it, then you will be able to identify the basic components of every ROS system like ROS2 nodes, topics, workspaces, and packages. Finally, you will create your first ROS2 node to perform object detection on a simulated robot's camera. This tutorial will be a great start to create your first real-world robotics application. If you are passionate about robotics and wish to build the robots of tomorrow. Welcome to your first step. Note: This tutorial works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

I can not say much. Because it is the most you can get from a platform like this. It would have been better if we used our own computers instead of a virtual machine running on the server. The main reason is most of the time VM lagging. I only recommend this course for absolute beginners. If you know a little bit about the topic you can learn from youtube, forums, etc. Overall, I liked the course and the instructor's method of explaining the topic.

Easy fun way to learn in just 60 minutes. However, watch a code exactly what had been taught here means you can only do what he teaches which is extremely basic. What about the framework, programming model, how to scale the right processing power, GPUs, how to put my already trained neural network, e.g. a trained random forest into my package, or YOLOv3 with the specific object detection capabilities into OpenCV2 (as a OpenCV extended module), and etc etc. There are a long way before I can achieve even the most basic robot.

This is the second guided project I have done and, while it was useful, I had the same problems. The split screen approach is nice, except that the left window continually closes throughout, making it very frustrating to keep up with the exercise. Also, the text to be typed is often not shown on-screen for long enough to copy over.

The course itself was a decent way to dip my toes in the water, having first used ROS five years ago. However, the Rhyme virtual environment made things much harder than they needed to be, with the matter of controls constantly changing and caps lock not working properly.

The remote connection kept collapsing. Impossible to write code. The explanations were not clear.
