It’s that time of year again when I’m thinking back on the journey I set up for myself by deciding to go into Robotics Consulting. This article is a follow up to the blog post I wrote last year. This year, I’ve decided to try and cover the most important aspects of what I’m doing, and how it has been working out for me.
Recently I’ve started integrating Ouster OS1-16 on a client’s platform and he was nice enough to allow me to run some tests with this LiDAR sensor. This post describes my first impression with this unit and provides some pointers that can be useful for anyone looking into using Ouster sensors with Robot Operating System.
I believe that in everyone’s life there comes a time where they need to do what they’ve always feared: they need to compile a Unix Kernel. This post is a step by step guide how I enabled the PPS support on Jetson Nano.
ArduSimple provided me with their RTK2B+heading module recently. In this blog post I’m describing my experience running the first tests with these modules and my planned further tests. My end goal is to integrate the modules with ROS and get a precise positioning in 2D with extra heading information.
