Step 1: Install VMware on PC
The robot uses the ubuntu virtual machine as the remote control terminal, and it is more convenient and intuitive to control the robot by using various graphical tools of ROS. Here, open the Ubuntu image through VMware virtual machine software. VMware version is not lower than 16.
- Download VMware 16
- Click to download the configured Ubuntu virtual machine image file below; if you want to configure the Ubuntu ROS system by yourself, you can refer to the advanced tutorial. It is recommended to use our configured image for the first time to avoid various problems when configuring the image yourself.
- Install and run the VMware software, click "File -> Open -> Open the downloaded <Ubuntu JetBot.vmx>", click "Start this virtual machine" and log in, where the username and password are: jetbot.
Step 2: Get Virtual IP and Hostname

The Ubuntu image file and PC we configured are in bridge network mode, under the same WiFi, the virtual machine and jetson nano are in the same network segment.]
ifconfig #Get the IP address of the virtual machine hostname #Get the hostname of the virtual machine
- Enter the following command to add the IP address of jetson nano, and the password is: jetbot [The editor can use /etc/hosts, or you can use vim, and choose a text editor according to personal habits.]
sudo nano /etc/hosts
