From Judith Viladomat

The ROS simulation of PAL Robotics mobile base, named PMB-2, is available now and ready to download! You will find all the steps in the ROS wiki.


This mobile base is the one used in TIAGo, the mobile manipulator. Now it is also available independently, and shipping for first units is starting in a few months - in October! PMB-2 is 100% ROS based and can be fully customized.


PMB-2 has a maximum speed of 1 m/s and can move around with its traversable step and traversable gap of 1.5 cm. The mobile base can carry anything on top, with a payload of 50 Kg. PMB-2 features our custom suspension system, making it handle larger irregularities of the floor.


You can watch PMB-2 first prototype in action in this video, where there are more features explained.
