ZebROS Nano

Caleb Krellwitz, Camryn Byrum, Grace Sullivan, Kevin Jaget, Marshall Massengill, The Zebracorns

At long last, we have scaled down our robot (but not our efforts) in an attempt to bring our work with ROS to more people. This tutorial focuses on our work with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano, a TileRunner Chassis from AndyMark, and Talon SRX Motor Controllers from Cross The Road Electronics to bring our ZebROS work to a larger audience. We think that the NVIDIA Jetson Nano is an excellent system to bring new robots online or bring older robots back to life and teach yourself some new skills around ROS in the process. We've done our best to make sure this Tutorial is easy to follow but we are releasing the document as a living Google document and not a PDF so that we can keep updating this as we get questions and eventually add even more to this tutorial. We're also releasing our complete software image for this so getting started is even easier.
