Building on the successful first and second volumes, this book is the third volume of the Springer book on the Robot Operating
System (ROS): The Complete Reference. The Robot Operating System is evolving from year to year with a wealth of new contributed
packages and enhanced capabilities. Further, the ROS is being integrated into various robots and systems and is becoming an
embedded technology in emerging robotics platforms. The objective of this third volume is to provide readers with additional
and comprehensive coverage of the ROS and an overview of the latest achievements, trends and packages developed with and for
it. Combining tutorials, case studies, and research papers, the book consists of sixteen chapters and is divided into five
parts. Part 1 presents multi-robot systems with the ROS. In Part 2, four chapters deal with the development of unmanned aerial
systems and their applications. In turn, Part 3 highlights recent work related to navigation, motion planning and control.
Part 4 discusses recently contributed ROS packages for security, ROS2, GPU usage, and real-time processing. Lastly, Part 5
deals with new interfaces allowing users to interact with robots. Taken together, the three volumes of this book offer a valuable
reference guide for ROS users, researchers, learners and developers alike. Its breadth of coverage makes it a unique resource.
