Episode #7, published Tue, May 12, 2015, recorded Mon, Apr 27, 2015

Programming is fun. Robots are fun. Programming robots is awesome! This episode Michael speaks with Dirk Thomas from the ROS (Robot Operating System) project. You will learn how to use ROS and ROSPy to program robots.

We discuss how to use ROS from some of the largest and most complex robots built (including one on the International Space Station!) all the way down to basic robots controlled via micro-controllers such as arduinos.
