Problem statement The use of ROS will increase in the future as the use of robots is increasing. The Open source approach and the community behind it made ROS widely accepted. The homepage „robotik UND PRODUKTION“ states, that ROS will be an industrial standard in the future. The acceptance of this open source framework continues to grow. That`s why the original founders and new developers are seeking to establish ROS as the industry standard. As far as the research institute ABI Research is saying, 55% of the commercial robots will own a ROS package in 2024. In recent years utilization of ROS is increasing. Therefor a lot of today`s jobs will be affected by that. Studies show that 57% of the jobs in the OECD could be affected. That`s one reason why the employees need to be prepared and trained in ROS. Explanation of teaching approach Learning robotics by doing is far more effective than reading. This course will provide a good balance between theoretical and practical input. The course mainly concentrates on the basics of ROS. Since the ROS mainly works with Linux, it is essential to educate the participants with the basic knowledge of the Linux operating system. […]
