My Work Timeline
Welcome to my Activity Log!!! My Research topic is " Co-operative mappingg by using a swarm of sensors". The first target to achieve is to build up knowledge about using Ubuntu and ROS kinetics.
Ubuntu seems new to me as i always worked on window versions of operating systems. So for me task 1 was to install Ubuntu and make myself familiar to its working. When i started Ubuntu installation, i had to face problem because my system was not ready to accept different operating system. It started screaming out loud to warn me but i keep going. After 3 failures i became successful in Ubuntu installation over the cost of data in my hard drive.
Next task was to install ROS kinetics. Installing ROS Kinetics was not difficult after watching few tutorials on you tube.
