Abstract

The Robot Operating System, or ROS, is a framework used for robotics around the world. With the emergence of self-driving cars, many companies have helped moved ROS from an academic tool to a core component in the development of their autonomous vehicles. This talk will cover a brief overview of the ROS architecture and how you would begin using it on your self-driving car project.
