Problem statement

The use of ROS will increase in the future as the use of robots is increasing. The Open source approach and the community behind it made ROS widely accepted. The homepage „robotik UND PRODUKTION“ states, that ROS will be an industrial standard in the future. The acceptance of this open source framework continues to grow. That`s why the original founders and new developers are seeking to establish ROS as the industry standard. As far as the research institute ABI Research is saying, 55% of the commercial robots will own a ROS package in 2024.[1] In recent years utilization of ROS is increasing.  Therefor a lot of today`s jobs will be affected by that. Studies show that 57% of the jobs in the OECD could be affected.[2] That`s one reason why the employees need to be prepared and trained in ROS.

Explanation of teaching approach

Learning robotics by doing is far more effective than reading. This course will provide a good balance between theoretical and practical input. The course mainly concentrates on the basics of ROS.

  • Since the ROS mainly works with Linux, it is essential to educate the participants with the basic knowledge of the Linux operating system.
  • Similarly, introduction into Git is also significant considering most of the contribution to ROS for the developers are present in the repository such as GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket.
  • The course teaches the participants to basics of ROS with the theoretical background as well as the guided practical’s.
  • It is always fun when the developed package is running with real hardware. Therefore, the time is given to the participants to understand and run the robots.

Due to the large support from the ROS community, the implementation of complex algorithms is made easy. The course will teach the participants how to use them and deploy them to the robots. The training material of the MASCOR Institute at the FH Aachen will be used.13

 4-day training


Day 1: introduction to Linux, Shell Basic and introduction to Git, Python basics

Day 2: introduction and basic concept of ROS + workshop, ROS programming and tools + workshop

Day 3: robot description and transforms + workshop, robot manipulation with MoveIt! + workshop, hands on with real robot

Day 4: navigation & path planning + workshop, hands on with real hardware


This training is given in English, but all our trainers speak German and English.

Costs & Dates

There will be two price categories, a regular and a student price. All training prices include training material (print and/or PDF) and snacks and beverages. The trainings are planned for approx. May/June 2020, October 2020 and January 2021. We provide a mobile version for Inhouse trainings as well. Please contact us, if you are interested in an inhouse training at your company.
