  1. System Overview (todo)
  2. Installing Ubuntu (todo)
  3. Customizing Ubuntu (todo)
  4. Installing and configuring ROS
  5. Navigating the ROS filesystem
  6. Creating a ROS package
  7. Using Subversion to share and manage your project
  8. Building a ROS package
  9. On the ROS tutorials page, do tutorials 5 (Understanding ROS Nodes) to 17 (Recording and playing back data), but keep this in mind:
    • If you can choose between rosbuild and catkin, select rosbuild
    • If you can choose between C++ and Python, select C++
    • Whenever the tutorial refers to the beginners_tutorial ROS package, use the name of the package you created above instead (that is, beginners_tutorial_<YOUR_NAME>). Of course, you can use TAB completion when possible.
    • The path to your ROS package differs from the path in the ROS tutorials
  10. Do the following (ROS-independent) C++ tutorials:
    1. cplusplus.com: up until Name visibility
    2. MIT's Introduction to C++: up until Classes
    • Remarks:
      • For now, use a simple editor such as gedit. We will install an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) later.
      • Once you have saved your C++ program (e.g. as example.cpp), it can be compiled from a terminal using:
        g++ example.cpp -o example
        and run with
        ./example
  11. Setting up an IDE
  12. Setting up the PICO simulator
  13. Creating your first PICO-related ROS package
