Robots are coming! Let’s be ready to program them 🙂
• We’re going to work the ROS tutorials: create a workspace, create a package, create a msg file, a simple publisher and subscriber in Python, create a service and client in Python.
• This will probably take more than one session; this is the start of that effort.
• We’ve got a virtual machine with the relevant software pre-installed. Read about it here: http://www.robotgarden.org/wiki/robotics/programming-robots/programming-robots-study-group-vm/.
