Prevalent problem in robotic development was that engineers lacked common platform for communication and collaboration. Every time they started a new project they needed to build software and hardware from the beginning. To overcome this problem various robotic platforms were developed and today’s leading platform for robotics is Robot Operating System (ROS). ROS is intending to be worldwide useful robotic operation system as well as for industrial applications and scientific research. The paper presents a main concept of the ROS, advantages and comparison of ROS and other frameworks used in robotics. PC implementation and using PC platform as a robotic controller is the main goal of the paper.
