The Corporate Sector Information Systems and Services is more than happy to support the Hackathon Stuttgart already the fifth time since 2015.
This year we teamed up with our Business Division Chassis Systems Control, Power Tool, Thermo Technic and the Startup Cobi.Bike.
Chassis Systems Control will offer you the chance to get deeper insights into “Autonomous Driving @ Bosch:”
Use our hardware to build and program your own driving vehicle (… well robot)!
However, there are some things you and your team should ideally bring, to get out the most of our hardware.
- Ideally you have already worked a little with ROS (Robotic Operating System) and have it pre-installed on your Linux computer. Since the robots have
linux control units, some *basic* Linux shell skills are key – e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxuRxtrO2Ag.
- Preferably you code C++ or Python LIKE A BOSCH (or at least very close to it :)). This will help you get the most out of the robots.
- Feel free to bring more sensors with you to create the best use case EVER. The world is at your “wheels”.
+ Erle Rover 2x
+ Amigo Bots 5x
+ a bunch of native and external sensors and computing power (e.g. Camera, Lidar, Udoo x86 Advanced Plus, Erle Brain, SD Cards, Wifi Router…)
+ a bunch of supporting stuff (Powerbanks, Wifinetworkcards, wires, adapters mounting plates)
+ Further More we will provide a repository that will help you to get things connected and done. In this repository you will find all the code you need to
move the robot around (basic movement) and display the values from the sensors in ROS (for example Lidar). Be sure you are familiar with Git –
for everyone else get started with – http://rogerdudler.github.io/git-guide.
Good to know:
In case you feel overwhelmed by the hardware, several of our best developers might give you a hand. Just ask us! – http://rogerdudler.github.io/git-guide. It is our pleasure to welcome you, your team and your code and your cool ideas!
