This course introduces the ROS middleware and its tools for developing modern robot systems. It covers the general structure of ROS and the usage of its publish-subscribe, service and action-server concepts. Furthermore, a short introduction of the robot simulation GAZEBO is given. Within hands-on-sessions, the participants will integrate the key components of a mobile robot (Hardware, Sensory as well as Localization, Mapping and Motion Planning Algorithms) in ROS.
