Book Description

This learning path is designed to help you program and build your robots using open source ROS libraries and tools. We start with the installation and basic concepts, then continue with the more complex modules available in ROS, such as sensor and actuator integration (drivers), navigation and mapping (so you can create an autonomous mobile robot), manipulation, computer vision, perception in 3D with PCL, and more.

We then discuss advanced concepts in robotics and how to program using ROS. You'll get a deep overview of the ROS framework, which will give you a clear idea of how ROS really works. During the course of the book, you will learn how to build models of complex robots, and simulate and interface the robot using the ROS MoveIt motion planning library and
ROS navigation stacks.

We'll go through great projects such as building a self-driving car, an autonomous mobile robot, and image recognition
using deep learning and ROS. You can find beginner, intermediate, and expert ROS robotics applications inside!

It includes content from the following Packt products:

  • Effective Robotics Programming with ROS - Third Edition
  • Mastering ROS for Robotics Programming
  • ROS Robotics Projects

Table of Contents
