This guided project 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 guided project 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 project, You will be able to use one of the most important robotics skills out there which is ROS. Throughout the project, 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 project 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 course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
