Package Summary

Documented

ROS is an open-source, meta-operating system for your robot. It provides the services you would expect from an operating system, including hardware abstraction, low-level device control, implementation of commonly-used functionality, message-passing between processes, and package management. It also provides tools and libraries for obtaining, building, writing, and running code across multiple computers.

The ROS runtime "graph" is a peer-to-peer network of processes that are loosely coupled using the ROS communication infrastructure. ROS implements several different styles of communication, including synchronous RPC-style communication over Services, asynchronous streaming of data over Topics, and storage of data on a Parameter Server. These are explained in greater detail in our Conceptual Overview.

ros stack Decomposition since Diamondback

New in Diamondback

In ROS Diamondback, the ros stack was separated into four stacks as part of REP 100. REP 100 describes these changes and why they were made. In summary:

  • ros: ROS packaging and build system.

  • ros_comm: ROS communication system (client libraries and tools).

  • rx: ROS graphical tools based on wxWindows.

  • documentation: ROS documentation tools.
