Robotics Education & Games
Open on line platform to learn Robotics and Computer Vision and enjoy solving Robotics challenges (programming games). Play!
RoboticsAcademy is an open source collection of exercises to learn robotics in a practical way. Gazebo simulator is the main tool required, as ROS. The students program their solutions in Python language. Each exercise is composed of :
- Gazebo configuration files,
- A ROS node that hosts the student’s code,
- A file with instructions, hints, etc..
- The student solution itself.
1, 2, and 3 are already provided, the student has to develop her code on a separate file which already has a template. The student may use there an existing simple Python API to access to sensor readings and actuator
commands_ (HAL API) and she may use an existing simple Python API for Graphical User Interface and
debugging_ (GUI API). To develop her solution the student has to edit that template file and add her code, using her favorite text editor.
