Dingo Tutorials

Dingo Robot

This package supplies Sphinx-based tutorial content to assist you with setting up and operating your Dingo mobile robot. The tutorials topics are listed in the left column, and presented in the suggested reading order.


These tutorials assume that you are comfortable working with ROS. We recommend starting with our ROS tutorial if you are not familiar with ROS already.


Dingo is still under active development. As such these tutorials may be incomplete in certain areas and are subject to change. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Dingo currently runs on ROS Melodic on Ubuntu 18.04 “Bionic”. Other versions of ROS and Ubuntu have not been tested yet.

Simulation is a logical place for most users to start, as this is universally applicable; understanding how to effectively operate Dingo in simulation is valuable whether you are in the testing phase with software you intend to ultimately deploy on a real Dingo, or you do not have one and are simply exploring the platform’s capabilities.

Navigation is a follow-on to what is learned in the simulation tutorial, as navigation and map-making may be run in the simulated environment. However, this content is applicable to both the simulator and the real platform, if equipped with a laser scanner.

Additional topics coming soon!
