Robot Fleet Management in ROS2 v2 Course - Python
Learn how to set up a robot fleet and manage it with the RMF infrastructure.
Managing fleets of robots is tough work. That's why having a high-level API for managing fleets of different robots and systems is key.
RMF allows you to do that.
It gives you the tools to: * Manage different fleets of robots * Assign tasks to the robot best suited for the job based on criteria like the type of robot and the time spent doing that task or battery level. * Integrate already existing robot systems through API calls and ROS2 topics. * Integrate non-robot systems like doors, lifts, and humans.
