About this book

The objective of this book is to provide the reader with a comprehensive coverage on the Robot Operating Systems (ROS) and latest related systems, which is currently considered as the main development framework for robotics applications.

The book includes twenty-seven chapters organized into eight parts. Part 1 presents the basics and foundations of ROS. In Part 2, four chapters deal with navigation, motion and planning. Part 3 provides four examples of service and experimental robots. Part 4 deals with real-world deployment of applications. Part 5 presents signal-processing tools for perception and sensing. Part 6 provides software engineering methodologies to design complex software with ROS. Simulations frameworks are presented in Part 7. Finally, Part 8 presents advanced tools and frameworks for ROS including multi-master extension, network introspection, controllers and cognitive systems.

This book will be a valuable companion for ROS users and developers to learn more ROS capabilities and features. 

 

Reviews

“This book has a lot of code. This feature is quite welcome for newbies and experts who want to replicate the successful robots detailed here. Another more-than-appreciated feature of this book is the section called ‘Software Engineering with ROS.’ … The book closes with advanced tools such as advanced debuggers and real-time implementations in ROS.” (Ramon Gonzalez Sanchez, Computing Reviews, computingreviews.com, July, 2016)
