Handling ROS Tutorial in IROS2012 (2012-10-07)


This tutorial provides a hands-on introduction to ROS - Robotic Operating System - and its use for robot in-hand manipulation.

The speakers are currently using ROS for research and development on autonomy and dexterity with robot hands for manipulation and grasping. Many of those activities are supported by international projects (e.g. European project HANDLE - Developmental pathway towards autonomy and dexterity in robot in-hand). ROS was a natural choice for the integrated work in the robotic in-hand object manipulation system, integrating perception using the Kinect sensor and tactile sensing, and control of the robotic arm and the SHADOW robotic hand. The speakers at the tutorial will provide practical case studies and examples, and bringing along some hardware to showcase and eventually test the attendees’ tutorial code.

As an outcome of this tutorial, attendees will have a basic knowledge on how to use ROS for manipulation, experience practical cases related with perception and action for robotic in-hand object manipulation, and also have a good insight on how ROS can be used as a software development tool in the context a of a robotics research team.
