Reference # : Model No :

Ridgeback is a midsize indoor robot platform that uses an omni-drive to move manipulators and heavy payloads with ease. The omnidirectional base provides precision positioning in constrained environments and comes fully integrated with onboard computer, front and optional rear laser scanners and an IMU. Ridgeback offers native ROS and Gazebo integration and is plug-and-play compatible with Clearpath’s range of robot accessories.


Omnidirectional Mecanum wheels paired with a precision drive and high resolution encoders (35840 pulses per revolution) to enable exact position control within 3 degrees of maneuverability.

Enables unconstrained path and algorithm planning. Able to simulate a more limited platform by not using its side-to-side capabilities. 360-Degree FOV. Integrated LIDAR and top plate is designed for an unobstructed 360-degree LIDAR field of view (rear-mounted LIDAR required). Operates autonomously, avoiding collisions and planning paths that take full advantage of the maneuverability offered by its omnidrive base.
