Clearpath Warthog

Clearpath Warthog is a large robot for outdoor research. Its design allows it to move even in very difficult terrain, such as mud or steep obstacles. Additionally, the Warthog is also amphibious – it can swim. Due to its open architecture and a wide range of sensors, it is a great solution for many research projects. 

The manufacturer has adapted this platform to work with ROS and Gazebo, making it easy to simulate, program and control.
