Autonomous mobile machines with ROS

ROS (Robotic Operating System) is an OS introduced in 2007 as an open-source library to make robot programming much easier. By using a separate package per functionality, a programmer can easily integrate the needed sensors, actuator and features. The community around this platform has grown vastly and with the extra features in the new ROS2 environment, all the disadvantages of ROS are taken care of. ROS was primarily developed for the classical robot. A lot of the code and functionalities have analogies with autonomous driving. In the presentation, these analogies are handled and clarified in a practical use case.
