Unique collaboration enables the school to teach students about ROS integration and autonomous systems.
(Kitchener, Ontario – July 8, 2013) The Robot Operating System (ROS) Summer School 2013 will kick into high gear July 22-August 2 at FH Aachen in Germany. Clearpath Robotics is a proud sponsor of the event and has provided equipment which will enable students to run ROS code for testing and demonstration.
“ROS is incredibly important to us and we have championed it since its beginning. In fact, all of our robots are ROS compatible,” said Matt Rendall, Chief Executive Officer at Clearpath Robotics. “A summer school program designed specifically around learning and sharing ROS is something we’re very excited to be a part of. We’re really glad to help.”
The objective of the ROS Summer School is to teach students how to get started with ROS integration for those who are interested in mobile autonomous systems. The program is organized by MASCOR (Mobile Autonomous Systems and Cognitive Robotics) at FH Aachen. Registration is open to the public and is recommended that participants have basic knowledge of Linux (Ubuntu) and one programming language such as Python or C++.
