Course overview

As human beings, we learn from a very young age about our body’s structure: which bones and muscles are part of it, how they are connected between them, how we can move each articulation, etc.

For a robot, though, how can we know all this information? Well, this is exactly what URDF files are going to tell us. URDF files define the structure of a robot, the connection between all the different parts, etc.

In this course, you will understand how URDF files work, and how to create them for any robot.

What You Will Learn

  • How to build a visual robot model with URDF
  • How to add physical properties to a URDF Model (Collision, Frictions…)
  • How to use XACRO to clean up URDF files.
  • How to use URDF in Gazebo-ROS ecosystem.

Please explain more about how to write xml-file. We cannot just copy the code all the time, without knowing what happens actually.

It would be nice if the course could elaborate more on the origin tag of urdf and also the joint state subscriber.

For a robot I designed in Creo, I was able to write a URDF and simulate and control it in Gazebo. Very useful course!

I think all the background running simulation files must be made available to be downloaded so that we can run the projects we are creating in physical machine.
