Teaching methods

Project work


The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the necessary fundamentals of programming necessary for programming of control systems of service robots with the help of the Robot Operating System (ROS) system. Students will get an overview of commonly used packages suitable for control of electric drives, data acquisition from sensors, visualization, analysis and image processing etc.
