Abstract

Abstract: The amount of knowledge needed to deploy a robotic system can sometimes feel overwhelming. However, many individual problems were solved already, including software ecosystems to simulate and then deploy our robots seamlessly. The Robot Operating System (ROS) is an open-source solution addressing this critical sharing need for robotic sensing, control, planning, simulation, and deployment. Not to be confused with a library, it is a software ecosystem (the concept of an operating system might be too strong) facilitating the integration, maintenance, and deployment of new functionalities and hardware from simulations to physical deployment. Learning objectives: The objective at the end of this chapter is to be able to: • to know how to use (run and launch) ROS nodes and packages; • to understand the messaging structure, including topics and services; • to know about some of the core modules of ROS, including the Gazebo simulator, ROSbags, MoveIt! and the navigation stack.
