    115. ROS for Human Robot Interaction

    115. ROS for Human Robot Interaction

     































    I would like to dedicate this episode to people that are working to make robots more understandable by humans. People want people to interact seamlessly with robots. That robots understand us and that we understand robots.

     

    Today we are going to learn what is HRI and a project that tries to achieve that with ROS. 

     

    But before going into the meat, let me tell you that in case you need to improve your ROS skills, you can learn RO2 with The Construct.  We provide self-led trainings based on robot simulations and remote real robots.

     

    You follow our lessons using your web browser and practice from minute one with the simulated robots. Also, as you advance the lesson, you will practice with real robots located in Barcelona.

     

    They are available 24/7 for you to remotely connect to them and do your practice. Have a look at our webpage about the different subjects you can learn on ROS1 and ROS2 and start practicing with robots from minute one with The Construct.

     

    Now let me introduce you Severin Lemaignan. Severin is a senior scientist in social robotics at Pal Robotics. There he works to develop ways to make communication between humans and robots easier. Today he is going to explain us everything about HRI and his project about how to get a general framework of HRI for ROS robots.

     

    Welcome to the podcast Severin!

    I would like to dedicate this episode to all the developers working on making efficient warehouse robots using ROS ( ROS-based warehouse robot). If you are in that field, if you are trying to make the picking system easier for all the warehouses around the world, then this episode is dedicated to you.

     

    Today we are going to learn about warehouse-picking robots and cloud tools for this.

     

    But before going into the meat, let me tell you that in case you need to improve your ROS skills, you can learn RO2 with The Construct.  We provide self-led trainings based on robot simulations and remote real robots.

    113. Awesome robotics company with no ROS

    113. Awesome robotics company with no ROS

     































    I would like to dedicate this episode to the people that use other robotics frameworks different from ROS… and succeed. You know, ROS already provides you with a fully working robotics framework as well as many software for main robotics tasks. If you go outside ROS, the robotics world is cold, difficult, and hostile. If a company is able to succeed in such conditions, then that indicates strength and mastery. Good for you! If your company is in such a situation, then this episode is dedicated to you.

     

    Today we are going to learn about such an amazing company that has succeeded worldwide without using ROS. We will learn how they did it, why they don’t use ROS and what do they use instead. We will also learn about their process to get robotics engineers in their team, so this episode can be very interesting for you if you are looking for a job!

     

    But before going into the meat, let me tell you that in case you still believe ROS is a good path for you, you can learn ROS2 with The Construct. We provide self-led training based on robot simulations and remote real robots. You follow our lessons using your web browser and practice from minute one with the simulated robots. Also, as you advance the lesson, you will practice with real robots located in Barcelona. They are available 24/7 for you to remotely connect to them and do your practice.

    Now let’s go to the meat of the episode. Let me introduce you Denys Kanunikov and Sam Thornton.  Denys and Sam work at Mujin, a robotics company that…. well you are going to learn in a minute. For the moment, let me tell you that Denys is the lead robotics system engineer of Mujin and Sam is the Manager of Talent acquisition.

    112. Autonomous Cars with Open Source Code

     































    I would like to dedicate this episode to all the developers working on using ROS for autonomous cars, then this episode is dedicated to you.

     

    Today we are going to learn about how we can use open-source ROS2 code to control autonomous cars. How we can test it in simulations and how we can rely on a professional company to support our autonomous cars projects.

     

    But before going into the meat, let me tell you that if you need to improve your ROS skills, you can learn RO2 with The Construct.  We provide self-led training based on robot simulations and remote real robots.

    111. Hardware Acceleration in ROS2

    111. Hardware Acceleration in ROS2

    I would like to dedicate this episode to all the ROSDevelopers out there that have started or are already progressed doing progressing in programming robots by using FPGA and accelerating hardware of any kind. So if you are any of those engineers or ROSDevelopers using accelerate hardware for your robot, then this episode is dedicated to you!

     

    Today we are going to learn more about accelerated hardware for robots. But before going into that, let me tell you about the ‘Managing fleets of robots with ROS2 Online Training’ that is organized by The Construct. In this training, you will learn how to make multiple robots navigate in a ROS2 environment, and how to use the Open-RMF to manage different fleets: how to coordinate, how to decide which robot serves which task, when to go to refill batteries, open doors at robot command, and many more things.

     

    This is a live online training, but all the lessons are practice-based (with both simulation and real robots) and teacher lead. We have even created a cafeteria to which you will connect remotely from your location and do your practice there!

     

    Now let me introduce you Giulio Corradi who is the principal architect industrial vision healthcare at AMD. Giulio, welcome to the Podcast!
