Is it obligatory to quote ROS when mentioned in a scientific article? Is there a strict rule on this matter?

It depends, at least for me.

If it's an important part of your research (e.g. you prepared a special protocol for experimental validation of results, used some packages from ROS toolkit, etc.), then you should mention it by citing the ICRA 2009 article

or at least by giving a site link like this:

Open Source Robotics Foundation. Robotic Operating System.\url{}

If it was used somewhere on your robot, but wasn't important to the overall publication, I would skip it (but it should be in the project documentation beyond those few pages in the journal).
