Today by far the most commonly used robotics software is ROS, which stands for Robot Operating System. This is an open source software, and the most number of developers and robotics users are involved with this program with an ever increasing rate. It contains set of libraries, algorithms, developer tools and drivers for developing robotics […]

A New Book for Learning ROS

Since the first release of ROS on March 2, 2010, Willow Garage has significantly invested in the development of this software. The framework is meant for programming robotic systems that organize a great number of modules running on a real robot, and helps to develop and use already tested code. In brief, it makes development […]

Gumstix Supports ROS

Gumstix Inc., the premier provider of Linux computers-on-modules (COMs), today announced official support for ROS, the open source Robot Operating System originally created by Willow Garage, on its ARM-based line of Overo COMs For more detail visit: http://www.deskeng.com/articles/aabjaj.htm https://www.gumstix.com/    

ROS is 5 years old

ROS is 5 years old

The open source Robot Operating System (ROS) has recently celebrated its five year anniversary. We had made previous entries in Robotic Magazine about ROS, please see one of them here: http://www.roboticmagazine.com/software-ai/robot-operating-system-grows-exponentially which we had published when ROS was 3 years old. In that post, we were saying that the number of code packages had reached […]

ROS operated humanoid robot to help in human settings

ROS operated humanoid robot to help in human settings

Finally we will be starting to see humanoid robots in our daily lives more and moreā€¦ A good example is the M1 robot by Meka Robotics, a humanoid robot on wheels that is able to manipulate its environment. The robot runs with ROS (Robot operating system) extensions. The builders say that the robot is designed […]

Robot Operating System grows exponentially

Open source robotics software ROS has marked it 3rd birthday as the number of code packages reached to 1600, and the number of participants keeps growing exponentially. The main advantage of an open source robotics platform is that once a robotics problem is solved, the rest of the coders are able to use that code […]

Building a Robot Operating System

Robot designing and building benefits greatly from common operating platforms, where different teams of designers can build on others work. Currently there exists quite a few operating systems, that have found use in many different applications and locations. See Robotic Magazine software page for a list that summarizes major systems. However, a common operating system […]
