Programming Robots Study Group

Robots are coming! Let’s be ready to program them 🙂

This group is for aspiring roboticists.

This week

• Continue working on code organization, minimum code needs, deployment to the bot, etc.

• If we haven’t had an A* programming demo, could someone look at that?

• Avahi! I’d like someone to go into some depth about using this as well.

•  Bring your chassis with you and show us your stuff! If you’d like to do a presentation, please try to keep it to 10 minutes.

• Bring your problems to debug. We’ll nominate one or 2 and focus on resolution. Those bringing the bug must bring their development environment and whatever components needed.

There is no charge

• This meetup occurs during Robot Garden’s weekly open access. Programming experience comes in handy. Persons under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver and must be accompanied.

• Become a member of our forum:

• New to ROS? You can catch up online! See Programming Robots Study Group session notes at

• Remember to bring your computer WITH ROS DESKTOP. Using our Virtual Machine on your PC satisfies this requirement. Our virtual machine has the relevant software pre-installed. Read about it here:


Robot Garden has cameras in place for safety and security. By entering the facility or participating in activities at Robot Garden, the participant agrees to have their image and or voice recorded by Robot Garden, it’s staff, volunteers or other participants and that those images may be posted online.
