Learning ROS robot programming with Raspberry Pi(Chinese edition)


Add to Cart:

This book is printed in Taiwanese.
This book introduces ROS (robot operating system) with an actual robot that has a Raspberry Pi as its computer. To understand ROS and actual robot systems, we need to know various surrounding technologies. Therefore, this book covers Linux, web programming, Git/GitHub, software licenses, and software testing. Though they are mainly handled in books on software engineering, these topicsare integrated with robot programming in this book.
