From the series: Implementation
Sebastian Castro, MathWorks
Pulkit Kapur, MathWorks
Sebastian Castro and Pulkit Kapur discuss how to use MATLAB® with the Robot Operating System (ROS).
First, Sebastian and Pulkit introduce the workflows for connecting MATLAB and ROS using the Robotics System Toolbox™. You will learn software features, templates, and best practices to help you implement common ROS programming constructs in MATLAB.
Finally, you will see a demonstration of the concepts above through an autonomous object tracking example. This example implements best practices with MATLAB and Robotics System Toolbox. It also highlights the modularity of MATLAB and ROS by showing the algorithm using real and simulated TurtleBot® robotic platforms, as well as a webcam. Two new products were introduced in R2019b to complement the capabilities of Robotics System Toolbox: Navigation Toolbox and ROS Toolbox.
