*Webinar | How to Teach Autonomous Mobile Robots*

*Date&Time:* November 29th, 2018 | 6 to 7 pm · CET
*Fee:* Free event
*Languages:* English
*Registration website:* https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__bit.ly_2zarETz&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Mr8u4oktXSP3WiJclrK8AgnhBhuyU9cxe473r_vbATM&s=_NuMT8aNglO5V3Xn5AUaz11DUfkEyldelrn58JXAtic&e=

*Overview:*
Autonomous Mobile Robots is one of the most essential course for a Robotics
degree. But the preparation of this course is difficult.
In this free webinar, we are going to show you how to teach this course
effectively by using ROS-based robot simulation.

*Content outline: *
1. Problems teaching autonomous mobile robots
2. Learning ROS along mobile robots
3. Using simulations
4. Testing mobile robot algorithms
5. Transferring to real robots
6. Solving robotics errors
7.  How to develop the teaching material

* The whole code will be provided to all attendees as a ROSject, containing
simulation, notebook with instructions and code.
* All attendees will receive a 91 pages manual on Exploring ROS with
wheeled robots.

*Outcomes:*
* Change the course from passive listening to active practicing.
* Move away from a slides based teaching method to a notebook based one,
where direct interaction with robots is embedded in the method itself.

RICARDO TÉLLEZ, Ph.D. (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.linkedin.com_in_ricardotellez_4&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Mr8u4oktXSP3WiJclrK8AgnhBhuyU9cxe473r_vbATM&s=uhUNm-uHGLo95qbBbCDPkeF_ABTWEseQB1cP_CpvALg&e=)
Ricardo has 7 years experience building software for ROS based robots
including human size humanoids. He is the author of 4 books about learning
ROS. He teaches Robotics at the University of LaSalle for the undergraduate
program and for the Master. Additionally, he delivers every Tuesday a free
ROS Live Class on his Youtube channel, where attendants can learn and
practice a ROS subject. He is also the conductor of the ROS Developers
Podcast where he interviews every week a ROS expert about how to better
program robots with ROS.
