Hey guys,

What would be the best way to explain ROS to an audience with no previous knowledge.Preferably in one slide.

And what is your target audience? 'No knowledge' is really nothing. They will probably know something, right?

The target audience is Computer Science Undergraduates with no exposure to ROS and robotics.

Personally, I would copy pasta text and pictures from the website and Wikipedia. I'd pick and choose things from those sources based on the audience. No need redoing something that someone has already put time into doing.
