Look inside

Start building your robotics foundation: You’re a programmer helping create prototype robots for the RoboPrototypes company. You’ll get a brief introduction to ROS2, set up the programming environment, and onboard robotics building blocks with basic tutorials. Then you’re ready to create launch files, which are integral to every ROS project. As you create packages in ROS2, you’ll learn to define and use parameters and declare custom messages. When you’re finished, you’ll have a firm foundation for delving deeper into robotics.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
