Warthog, the land drone that enjoys mud
You’ve already explored forests, plains and stony paths, now you can tackle marshes, ponds and large puddles. Clearpath Robotics' Warthog is a 100% waterproof mobile robot of a heavy-duty steel and aluminium design suitable for all types of terrain. Capable of travelling at 18 km/h on dry ground, it can maintain a speed of 4 km/h once in the water. Measuring 1.5 m in length, 1.3 m wide and weighing some 600 kg, this unmanned vehicle is quite a hulk. You can load up to 272 kg of various equipment on its platform.
And to help it crawl around with ease, the Warthog’s designers have given it a comfortable ground clearance of over 25 cm. Who knows what its next mission will be!
A Clearpath “ROS Ready” mobile robot
With so many mechanical strengths, it would’ve been a shame to not be able to use this super-powerful drone to its full capacity. Which is why its on-board computer includes a pre-installed and configured ROS. Its open-source environment gives you access to a multitude of documents and project examples. And for an even richer experience, it offers a whole range of customisation possibilities:
- You can configure multiple I/Os (Ethernet, WiFi, USB, remote control) to surf the different control modes
- There are a multitude of accessories you can mount on the platform: LiDAR range finder, GPS module, robotic arm, etc.
