The overview of this research is to allow an easier understanding of Robot Operating System (ROS) and Robot Operating System Industries (ROS-I) for final year students that have no prior knowledge with the mentioned programs. These programs can only operate using the Ubuntu 16.04 version operating system. The two programs mentioned above have yet to be introduced as a part of a module in the educational program. Hence, it is necessary to have a guideline that would be easy for the students to comprehend especially when there a need to utilize these programs. This report will be a fool proof guide from the installations of the operating system to the installations of ROS, as well as usage of ROS-I. An explanation will be provided in a manner where it will be easy for a layman to understand. Each of the steps will be written in details as not all computer program terms will be easy to understand if there are no prior knowledge of it. The main intention of this report is to allow any final year student to have a fool proof guide to gain the knowledge of these programs at the least amount of effort. This will then increase the efficiency of their learning.
