The Robot Operating System (ROS) is a major control framework for implementing distributed control in applications such as robotics. Designed to facilitate synchronized operation of multiple, interconnected processors, ROS provides mechanisms for the command, control and reporting of various devices and sensors using a well-defined networked framework. In this session, we will introduce ROS, its operating model and how ROS can be used to create distributed control systems. We will then demonstrate ROS running on a small robot to illustrate the concepts.
