SUMMIT XL Heavy Load with rubber wheels


SUMMIT XL Heavy Load has two possible kinematic configurations. The omnidirectional configuration mounts Mecanum wheels on an independent suspension system. The Mecanum wheels can be easily replaced by conventional wheels (rim mount), thus allowing easy switch between the indoor omnidirectional configuration and the skid-steering configuration, enabling an increased mobility and manoeuvrability and unmatched speed and agility.

The odometry is computed using the wheel speeds and a high precision angular sensor mounted inside the chassis.

The strong mechanical structure allows to carry heavy loads (up to 65Kg). There are several suspension shocks possibilities. They can also be mounted at several positions to modify the robot clearance. Each wheel integrates a hub brushless motor with gearbox.

The robot base can navigate autonomously or teleoperated by means of a PTZ camera  that transmits video in real time.


The common sensor options include a Hokuyo laser scanner and a range of RTK-DGPS kits. It also has internal (USB; RS232, GPIO and RJ45) and external connectivity (USB, 12 and 24VDC) to easily add custom components.


The control architecture is open-source and modular, based on ROS. ROS framework defines a well organized robot software architecture and includes hundreds of user contributed packages and sets of packages called stacks, that implement functionality as localization and mapping, planning, manipulation, perception, etc.
This characteristic simplifies the software development cycle and allows easy integration and reutilization of software components whether they are device drivers or state of the art algorithms in vision, SLAM, point cloud processing, grasping, planning, etc.
