ROS, an important development in the field of robotics, is one of the most popular open source framework for writing software for robots. It is applicable to a wide number of robotic systems.
ROS is a pub-sub-based framework with all communication taking place through messages as topics. It integrates many other libraries and frameworks into it and this alleviates the need to install separate libraries.
How to make ROS fail-safe?
ROS is a set of tools that makes robotics successful, and these tools also work to make the mechanisms fail-safe. It is, therefore, important to carefully monitor the ROS Core — the central master for coordinating communication with other nodes — for any failure.
