CHAPTER 18

Conclusion

Although the first industrial robot was installed over 50 years ago, progress in the field has been slow. In large part, this is because isolated efforts were built as unique systems, and little of this work was reusable in subsequent systems. Given the difficulty of building a complex, intelligent system, individual efforts struggled to surpass the achievements of earlier projects. With the advent of ROS and its acceptance by roboticists, current robotic systems are developed much more rapidly than in the past, enabling more attention on pushing back frontiers of robot competence. With ROS’s communications infrastructure, separate but integrated nodes can be run concurrently, and these nodes can be distributed easily ...
