Using the structure of the Robot Operating System to enable complex functionalities

As you can see, communicating between different aspects of our project can be challenging. In this section, I'm going to introduce you to a special operating system that is designed specifically for use with robotic projects, the Robot Operating System (ROS). This operating system works on top of Linux and provides some interesting functionality.
