Linux and Its Applications in Robotics
Time & Location
About the Event
This workshop will give attendees a brief introduction to Linux operating systems (what are they? How are they different from Windows or MacOS?) and the command-line interface, and they will have the opportunity to see a practical application of Linux in ongoing scholarly research in robotics (using Ubuntu as a platform for Robot Operating Systems)!
