ROS-based Robot


Jackal is a small, fast, entry-level field robotics research platform developed by Clearpath Robotics.

With the Jackal robot simulation, you can do similar stuff without the risk of damaging the real version. You can use it to test any algorithms, such as Robot Navigation, Motion Planning, Object detection. Once you have your code working in the simulation, you can directly execute it in the real Jackal robot, with minimal to no changes!
