Modular Research Platform for Robot-Assisted Minimally-Invasive Surgery



The Robot Operating System (ROS) [229] is an open source middleware and a collection of associated software frameworks for modular (distributed) robot software. A focus of the middleware is exchange of streaming data under soft real-time conditions while maintaining a high runtime flexibility. ROS is often used in a research context where heterogeneous software components, often developed in isolation by different people, must work together across multiple computers.
