This book starts by showing you the fundamentals of the Robot Operating System (ROS) robotics software framework to illustrate the basics of differential robots. Author Lentin Joseph then covers robot modeling and how to design and simulate it using ROS. He then looks at how to design robot hardware and interfacing actuators, and how to configure and program depth sensors and LIDARs using ROS. Finally, instructions are given on creating a GUI for a robot using the Qt framework.
