What You Will Learn


Robotics Software Engineer Nanodegree Program

Begin your exploration into the world of robotics software engineering with a practical, system-focused approach to programming robots using the ROS framework and C++. In addition, learn and apply robotics software engineering algorithms such as localization, mapping, and navigation.


4 months to complete


To optimize your chances of success in the Robotics Software Engineer Nanodegree program, we’ve created a list of prerequisites and recommendations to prepare you for the program curriculum.See detailed requirements.

  • Introduction To Robotics

    Learn the essential elements of robotics, meet your instructors, and get familiar with the tools that will help you succeed in this program.

  • Gazebo World

    Learn how to simulate your first robotic environment with Gazebo, the most common simulation engine used by Roboticists around the world.


  • ROS Essentials

    Discover how ROS provides a flexible and unified software environment for developing robots in a modular and reusable manner. Learn how to manage existing ROS packages within a project, and how to write ROS Nodes of your own in C++.


  • Localization

    Learn how Gaussian filters can be used to estimate noisy sensor readings, and how to estimate a robot’s position relative to a known map of the environment with Monte Carlo Localization (MCL).


  • Mapping and SLAM

    Learn how to create a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) implementation with ROS packages and C++. You’ll achieve this by combining mapping algorithms with what you learned in the localization lessons.


  • Path Planning and Navigation

    Learn different Path Planning and Navigation algorithms. Then, combine SLAM and Navigation into a home service robot that can autonomously transport objects in your home!



We recommend the Intro to Self-Driving Cars Nanodegree program. This program will teach you the skills you need to be successful in the Robotics Software Engineer Nanodegree program, including C++, linear algebra, calculus, and statistics.
