There's actually a guide on the wiki to setting up ROS on raspbian here.

EDIT: the guide is technically for fuerte on debian squeeze, but there's a raspbian part on there, too. Also, at the time of this writing, you'll also need to use the workaround mentioned here if you're going to use fuerte since rosdep isn't backwards compatible.

ROS has been used by others on a rasberry pi. You still need an operating system to run ROS on it, e.g. Linux. There are ROS libraries for android handheld devices, which you can use to steer a robot using a touch screen. Follow the discussions on ros-users as well:
