Overview

With a payload mounting area and accessible power and communication ports, Moose can be customized with sensors, manipulators and other payloads to accommodate a wide variety of robotics applications in mining, agriculture, construction and environmental monitoring.

Moose is rugged, lightweight steel and aluminum build gives it low ground pressure and traction to tackle all types of difficult terrains including steep grades and soft soils. With built-in bilge pumps and an IP rating of 65, Moose is fully amphibious, capable of moving through waterways at speeds up to 5 km/hr

Users can integrate third-party sensors and components quickly and easily with flexible payload mounting, easy to access power and reconfigurable I/O (Ethernet, USB, WIFI, etc). 

Moose’s drive-train is capable of moving 513 kg (1131 lbs) of payload and can reach speeds up to 30 km/hr on land. With the optional power generator, Moose is capable of operating for up to 6hrs.

Moose’s onboard PC comes with the open-source Robot Operating System (ROS) preinstalled and configured.
