ADI offers training courses to help users get a better understanding of the ADEPT Framework. ADI uses the Balancing Robot Training to develop technical skills for both new and experienced users of the ADEPT Framework.

Balancing Robot Training


Course Summary

The Balancing Robot Training Course teaches both fundamental and advanced applications of the ADEPT Framework. Using an open hardware BeagleBone Blue (BBBlue) Single Board Computer (SBC) as the core Linux rtx server, this training course teaches concepts and techniques that apply directly to larger x86- and non-x86-based real-time rtx servers running the ADEPT Framework and most lessons also apply to ADvantage Framework applications. While this course starts with very basic concepts, it quickly builds upon earlier learning points to introduce advanced framework operations. By the end of this course, even a beginner will be able to balance the robot and know how to use the ADEPT tools to analyze real-time performance and automate common functions. This course focuses heavily on the use and benefits of Python scripting to make the most out of your ADI assets. To learn more about this training course, download the brochure here.
