Our Robotic Journey
In 2022, IoT Design Shop became really (really) interested in robots, and the application of robots to different problem domains. We were drawn to the ROS2 ecosystem, and found a rich technology base, as well as an amazing community with a ton of articles, packages, and tutorials to parse.
In the spirit of paying it forward, we endeavour to try document as much useful information from this journey as possible on this page. We’re hoping that this journal of our discoveries and solutions may also be useful to others who are undertaking the process of understanding robotics, and in particular the ROS2 ecosystem.
If there are things you’re specifically interested in – please feel free to reach out with your comments and questions. We’re very excited to hear what brings value to others, and would love to get your feedback.
