[Discourse.ros.org] [General] ROS Summer School in Aachen (August 2017)
After 6 successful ROS Summer Schools we are offering another one this year at our University of Applied Sciences in Aachen (Germany). The event is planned from 14th August till 25th August 2017. Everyone who is interested in learning ROS is invited to register now! A limited funding for International students for this event is offered by the [DAAD](http://goo.gl/JFJstR).
In the two weeks we are handling the following topics of mobile robotics more in detail:
ROS Basics, Communication, Hardware Interfacing, Teleoperation, Transforms, Gazebo Simulation, Landmark Detection, Localization, Mapping, Navigation, Control, some Industrial exhibition and so on and so on. . . Of course all these topics can be experienced on real hardware using our mobile robots after learning the theory.
And if this is still not enough for you, we offer an additional ROS UAV weekend afterwards from 26th to 27th of August. This will include assembling UAVs, first flight setup, flight modes, ROS interfacing, Landmark Detection and getting in touch with autonomous flying. Feel free to choose this option in our application form. Application form, more information, photos and videos can be found on our homepage:
All is organized by [MASCOR](http://www.maskor.fh-aachen.de/index.php/en/). The ROS Summer School is designed to teach participants about how to get started with ROS; it is created for those who have had an interest in autonomous systems, but didn't quite know how to get started. With that, organizers recommend students have a basic knowledge of Linux (Ubuntu) and one programming language such as Python or C++. The two-week program is made possible through Mobile Autonomous Systems and Cognitive Robotics (MASCOR).
