Implementing Robotics Applications with ROS 2 and AI on the NVIDIA Jetson Platform

Originally published at:

Deep learning is being adopted in robotics to accurately navigate indoor environments, detect and follow objects of interest, and maneuver without collisions. However, the increasing complexity of deep learning makes it challenging to accommodate these workloads on embedded systems. While you can make trade-offs between accuracy and deep learning model size, compromising accuracy to meet…

Hi @jwitsoe
Could you extend how to run it on jp44 AGX Jetson within docker container please?
The instruction seems reffering to missed steps:
> sh

This will initialize docker. Clone this repository using following command and follow build and run instructions for ros2 package from here.

What are the exact steps to follow after executing run docker_sh?
I wasn’t abler to find them in the file
Moreover, when trying to sort out the containers iinternals with steps from a separate non dockerized setup it would run into error after

mkdir ros2_ws
git clone
rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro eloquent -y
colcon build
root@nvidia-desktop:/ros2__ws# colcon build

May I know how to proceed with the docker implementation, please?
