ROS Software Maintainer: Roberto Guzman SummitXL is a high versatile high mobility indor/outdoor mobile robot platform manufactured by Robotnik. SummitXL has 4 motorwheels that can mount different set of wheels to adapt to different environment requirements:

  • skid-steering: 4 rubber wheels - thus allowing extremely high performance in rough outdoor terrain

  • omnidirectional drive: 4 mecanum wheels - to get extremely good manoeuvrability indoors.

This stack provides all the necessary packages for simulating in Gazebo and Rviz.



  • Joystick teleoperation
  • Autonomous navigation
