ROS Development

A proud supporter of the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF), Clearpath was an early adopter of the Robot Operating System (ROS) and has more deployed robots running ROS to the field than any other organization. With one of the largest ROS development teams in the world, Clearpath has industry leading expertise in the design and development of ROS software and ROS powered robotic systems.

Perception and Mapping

Situational awareness is core to autonomous robotic systems. Through innovative sensor fusion and point cloud processing, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) constructs a map of the environment while tracking the robot’s location in parallel. Object classification and tracking identify and tag points of interest for the robot to map.

Navigation and Control

Dynamic path planning determines the discrete motions required to accomplish desired tasks and maintains the route through linear and angular velocity commands at each instant of time. Safety and error handling are paramount to usability and run parallel to the planning and control operations.


Simulation is essential for evaluation of mathematically complex and safety sensitive environments. Before deployment, we use comprehensive simulation to assess the interactive and environmental performance of your autonomous system.
