The Western Norway University of Applied Sciences HVL located at the campus in Førde in Norway was interested in hosting the ROS Summer School. It was held in May 2019 for one week. The 7 participants had all different backgrounds: Ph.D. students, university teachers and engineers from industry who all have been invited by HVL. They learned the everything from the basics machanisms in ROS up on how to program an autonomous driving robot. Also a short excursion to Mobile Manipulation was introduced.

ROS Summer Schools provide the right starter kit by using robotic hardware and ROS software. Program first starts with some days of introductory courses, before main tasks of mobile robotics, i.e. perception, localization, mapping & path #planning will be tackled. The event's philosophy is: "Learning by doing to get hands-on experience". Besides acquiring the necessary theorethical knowlegde, all topics will be taught in small groups on real mobile robots.

About This year’s first ROS-I Academy of a total of five events at Fraunhofer IPA. The target is to boost participants from industry with little or no ROS knowledge to a level with broad comprehension of the robotic framework. The theoretical content is consolidated with workshops and is applied on mobile- and industrial robots for the focused areas. Moreover, the last day covers advanced topics which are also rewarding for experienced ROS developer. Agenda More details about the curriculum can be found in the agenda. Next editions There will be a total of 5 Academies at Fraunhofer IPA in 2019 Get the overview of all upcoming ROSIN training events.
