Description
Similar to the way that personal computers become part of our everyday lives, Willow Garage sees robots having a similar future. The goal of PR2 and ROS is to provide a common platform that people can build on top of, extend, and also share results more effectively.

Over a dozen institutions, corporate research labs, and universities have released open source code for ROS.
