Learn Robotics and Computer Vision with JdeRobot

Installation and use

Robotics Academy uses ROS and Gazebo as underlying infrastructure for the exercises. Computer Vision exercises use OpenCV.

Use it from your web browser with no installation

Just play with Robotics Academy at its WebIDE, it is free :-)

Local installation on Linux machines

The programming framework is composed of the Gazebo simulator, ROS middleware and the Robotics Academy package. All this software is open source so there are alternative ways to install all of them directly from the source code. Currently we use Gazebo-7.4.0, ROS Kinetic and JdeRobot-Academy (20180606) releases. Follow the installation recipe in the github repository to get the framework up and running, ready to use on your computer.

Local installation on Windows machines

We prepared docker images which include all the infrastructure software so you can run the framework from the container. Follow the installation recipe in the github repository to get the framework up and running, ready to use on your computer.


Exercises on Computer Vision

Color filter

Visual 3D reconstruction from a stereo pair of RGB cameras

Follow face

Exercises on autonomous cars

Visual follow-line behavior on a Formula1

The students program a Formula1 car in a race circuit to follow the red line in the middle of the road.

Local navigation of a Formula1 with VFF

In a race circuit the students have to program the navigation algorithm of a Formula1 car endowed with a laser (in Gazebo simulator).


Global navigation of a TeleTaxi with GPP

Global navigation of a TeleTaxi with OMPL

Autoparking

Car stop at a joint

Exercises on mobile robots

Bump and go

There is a Kobuki robot inside a labyrinth or scenario. The robot will go front until it gets close to an obstacle. The it will go back, turn a random angle and go front again repeating the process. This exercise aims to show the power of automata when building robot behavior.

Using the JdeRobot tool VisualStates the solution works like this. The tool's detailed manual can be found here.

Vacuum-cleaner

Program a robotic vacuum-cleaner like Roomba to clean your home. It does have a compass but not precise self-localization.

Vacuum-cleaner with visualSLAM

Program a robotic vacuum-cleaner like Roomba to clean your home. This Roomba model has a precise self-localization algorithm, so its navigation to clean may be better than without localization.

Exercises on drones

Drone position control navigation

Follow the ground robot

Follow the road

Drone cat and mouse

Landing on a moving car

Escaping from a labyrinth using visual cues

People rescue after an earthquake


Local courses (Spanish)

Robotics Academy se ha usado desde 2006 para la enseñanza de robótica en distintos cursos, tanto de grado como de master.

Además impartimos cursos cortos de introducción a la robótica en diferentes escenarios: drones, coches autónomos... Los damos también bajo demanda, si quieres contratar alguno de ellos contacta con nosotros por correo electrónico ( josemaria.plaza AT urjc.es )
