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.
Follow the steps in the ROS wiki and start simulating with the mobile base!
PMB-2 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 to adapt to any particular need. It is designed to work in indoor environments leaving just a little footprint, and travels avoiding obstacles thanks to its sensors.
PMB-2 has a maximum speed of 1 m/s and can move around overcoming potholes or bumps of up to 1.5cm. 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. PMB-2 can expand its abilities putting optional additions in it.
