Open-source software frameworks such as Apache Hadoop and Robot Operating System (ROS) are helped researchers to reduce arduous engineering work releasing them to concentrate more on the core research. The impact of extensive knowledge repositories of robot operating system interconnected with a large distributed data storage framework entails enormous developmental step in the future robotic systems era. Hadoop and ROS integrate the key frameworks presented in this paper to obtain the open source architecture. The main subject of research, an approach to apply service-oriented robotic (SOR) cloud enabling PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) mobile multi-robot architecture, is presented. Moreover, the focus is based on cloud-communicating service robots with lightweight workload requirements for the purpose of offloading heavy computation into a cloud. In an integrated experiment, the Ubuntu Linux environment is experimented after installing Hadoop cloud computing platform and ROS.
