Clearpath Robotics Packages

New in ROS Hydro

Much of the ROS software which Clearpath Robotics makes available is fully open source, built on the OSRF buildfarm and installable from However, there are some packages we build internally and make available via a separate debian repository on our own domain. These are generally:

  • Packages which are installed on our own robots, where we need more control over the release/sync timing.
  • Packages which contain proprietary algorithms or data.
  • Packages which have a dependency on a third-party proprietary component.

If you acquired a Clearpath Robotics platform in 2015 or later, it should already be set up with this repository.


If you need to manually add the Clearpath repository to a machine:

wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb $(lsb_release -cs) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/clearpath-latest.list'
sudo apt-get update

For the custom rosdep entries:

sudo wget -O /etc/ros/rosdep/sources.list.d/50-clearpath.list
rosdep update
