on 3 September 2020

ROS, the Robot Operating System, is the platform of choice for robot development. However, the breadth and depth of existing documentation can be daunting for the ROS beginner. Where should you start learning about ROS 2 on Ubuntu?

All robots based on ROS and ROS 2 are programmed using five simple but core constructs:

  • Nodes
  • Parameters
  • Topics
  • Services
  • Actions

In this tutorial and associated video we’ll introduce these concepts with simulated robots. This quick introduction should help you dive deep into the wealth of information available for programming your own ROS 2 robot!
