Upcoming Courses/Workshops

(a) 2-Day Lab-based Workshop on Building and Programming a Mobile Robot with Raspberry Pi-3

(please click on the title above for a copy of the brochure)

18 & 19 Jun 2018 (Singapore)

Presented by: Professor Thomas Bräunl, University of Western Australia

 

This workshop is targeted to Electrical, Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineers with some or little experience in robotics and pro­gramming. The hardware is based on a 2-wheel-drive mobile robot chassis in combination with the latest revolu­tio­nary Raspberry Pi-3 (B+) high-performance micro­-controller and digital camera. The workshop is highly interactive with short presentations in an all-day lab setting with lots of time for experimenting.

Participants will be able to take home the fully-completed mobile robot with Raspberry Pi-3 controller, camera, high-capacity battery power-bank and touch screen for programming.

 

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon completion of this workshop, participant will:

  1. Understand construction and working of mobile robots
  2. Understand principles of embedded system
  3. Be able to set up and interface the Raspberry Pi
  4. Be able to program the Raspberry Pi system
  5. Be able to integrate an embedded controller as part of a Mechatronics system.
  6. Be able to program the mobile robot to perform desired navigation tasks.

Participants are expected to bring their laptops to the workshop.

Each participant will be given the mobile robot kit, motor controller, Raspberry Pi-3, digital camera, a bread-board, LEDs, resistors and wires for experiments, as well as all required software and accompanying notes.

(b) 2-day Intensive and Practical Workshop on ROS: Hands-on Robotic Operating System under Ubuntu

(please click on the title above for a copy of the brochure)

24 & 25 Sep 2018 (Kuala Lumpur) and 27 & 28 Sep 2018 (Singapore)

Presented by: DR JÜRGEN “JUXI” LEITNER, Australian Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision (ACRV), Queensland University of Technology

 

Objectives of this workshop:

  • The workshop aims to give the participants an introduction to ROS.
  • It will have short presentations about specific topics within ROS followed by hands-on session, where attendees will be able to try and apply the presented knowledge on their own laptops.
  • A variety of useful tools will be presented and the workshop will finish with some best practices and use cases of ROS in a variety of projects.

Special feature of this workshop:

  • The workshop is of practical nature. Topics relevant to create, run and debug robotic systems with ROS — the widely used open robotic operating system — will be covered in the context of a simulated robot.
  • This is an interesting workshop where you create your own code to interface with a simulated humanoid robot.

Participants are expected to bring their laptops to the workshop.

Each participant will be given a ZL4 mobile robot kit, motor controller, Raspberry Pi-3, digital camera, a bread-board, LEDs, resistors and wires for experiments, as well as all required software and accompanying notes.
