DRAFT LEARN Robot PRACTISE Operating System & IMPLEMENT™ Navigation 2 (ROS2) Organised by: Funded by:

ROS navigation stack is one of the most popular navigation solutions in mobile robots since 2010. It allows mobile robots to move around autonomously. Recently, a new ROS navigation stack (Navigation2) is released with the new ROS version (ROS2). It inherits a set of foundational implementations of algorithms including A* and Dynamic Window Approach (DWA) for planning and control from Navigation1 and adds features including a behaviour tree navigator and task-specific asynchronous servers for achieving highly modularity. ROS2 provides a real-time capability that ROS1 originally did not. ROS2 is built on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) communication standard. DDS is used in real-time applications such as aircraft, missile systems, and financial systems. For professional mobile robots moving in excess of 2 m/s near humans, many safety and reliability concerns must be addressed. Navigation2 is designed on top of ROS2 to address functional safety standards and determinism. In the future, Navigation2 will enable more robots in time-critical situations. About this Programme This course introduces new cutting-edge sensor technologies, reviews the latest navigation algorithms, and explains the Navigation2 architecture. Typical sensors used in robot navigation include inertial measurement units (IMUs), vision sensors, and range sensors. Participants will have the opportunity to have hands-on experience with the latest sensors (i.e. Intel’s RealSense Camera and Velodyne’s 3D LiDAR). Robot navigation involves a vast amount of knowledge and experience (EKF SLAM, particle filter, pose graph, loop closure, DWA, A*, etc.). The course allows participants to explore current and future changes in the research landscape of navigation algorithms. Navigation2 is highly modular for integrating new sensors and new algorithms. Apart from the basic setup for navigation2 in a real robot, industrial experts will demonstrate how to integrate new sensors and implement new algorithm plugins. Quality assurance is critical for preventing regressions for software development and analyzing the performance of various algorithms. The Gazebo-based simulation tests for continuous integration pipeline to emulate the entire robot navigation stack will also be demonstrated. Who Should Attend This course is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of business owners, CEOs, directors, senior managers, and professionals who are in the areas of robot navigation etc.

Course Outline Skills Course Reference Number: To be confirmed (32 training hours) The course is conducted through the following sequential instructional units and learning units which aim to increase the participants’ level of understanding of ROS2 navigation and skills needed to develop navigation 2 on real robots. Classroom Case Studies Hands-on Practise Learning Assesment Lectures Discussions Practical (with Mentorship) Sessions Learning Unit 1: Cutting-Edge Senor Technologies Learning Unit 2: Mapping Research Landscape Learning Unit 3: Write codes using Navigation 2 Upon Completion of this Programme Participants will be awarded with a certificate of attendance by ARTC.
