Programming Robots with ROS and ROS2 using MATLAB


Robot Operating System (ROS) has become increasingly popular in industry, especially in the development of robotics. ROS, however, is a large robot programming framework, encompassing robot development tools, ecosystem, and distributed computing systems. It requires a steep learning curve, and it is hard to integrate into an existing non-ROS based stack.  Handwriting code for ROS requires using ROS’s package build system and compiling against its dependencies.

This webinar discusses ROS and ROS 2 support from MATLAB and benefits of using MATLAB in programming robot applications.


Through several examples, we will cover:

  • MATLAB and Simulink ROS and ROS 2 network interface
  • How to leverage built-in functionality in MATLAB toolboxes related to robot programming
  • Automated C++ node generation from MATLAB and Simulink
  • CUDA-compatible ROS node generation with embedded deep learning inference targeted for NVIDIA hardware
  • Recording, importing, and visualizing ROS data (rosbag files) to analyze and debug ROS-based applications

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
