Group sizes are kept small so there are ample opportunities for questions and discussions.

You will be provided with a ROS Virtual Machine (VM) ahead of the training that will be used for the hands on workshops.

Participants will have the opportunity to teleoperate physical hardware directly from their VMs over Wireguard VPN. This includes both industrial manipulators (robot arms) and mobile robots.

“I thought it worked excellently, in some ways remoting into a robot over vpn is cooler than operating one onsite.”

“Very thorough course that covers the fundamentals well, while allowing sufficient time for exploring student specific use cases and advanced topics.”

Jacob Harris, Autodesk


“We were due to attend the face-to-face training in London but this was scuppered by COVID19. The online training was presented as a substitute and it worked well. Gary was a helpful and engaging presenter, never frustrated by my basic questions. The training presented a very thorough introduction to ROS.”

– Alexei Winter, AMRC (UoS)
