Since this is a very generic question, the answer has to be very generic, too. You should work your way through the other tutorials at They describe the mechanisms of ROS in detail. One of the examples is very close to the use case you gave in a comment to your question.

This is a very open ended question which can't be easily answered. In general you need to identify what data you want to communicate. Pick existing messages or make new messages to convey that data. And then pick topics to send the data over the ROS communication protocols.
