Husarion Panther is a heavy-duty, autonomous mobile robotic platform designed to perform in the most challenging applications. We want to allow our clients to concentrate on developing their innovative solutions based on Panther without wasting unnecessary time figuring out how to handle our robot or integrate it with external components. That’s why our developers work hard to ensure that your experience with Panther is smooth, safe, and intuitive, allowing you to start working with our robot right away.

With the latest release of Panther ROS Driver v1.1.0, we have introduced a bunch of new features to enhance user experience and safety, including:

  • A new panther_manager based on BehaviorTree.CPP, which allows you to easily control the robot’s behavior in real-time and debug it on a visual interface.
  • A velocity smoother for better control of the robot’s movement and an extended Kalman filter configuration for improved odometry information.
  • Enhanced reporting on battery state and efficient handling of hardware-related errors based on the compatibility with the robot’s predefined configuration.

Husarion Panther is a heavy-duty robot designed for a variety of outdoor use cases across agriculture, logistics, mining, and other industries, so we do everything to ensure that its performance is stable and resilient even in the most demanding conditions. This requires not only robust construction, well-designed electronics, and sufficient IP protection rate, but also reliable and efficient software.

That’s why we are pleased to announce the release of Panther v1.0.0 ROS driver - an updated version of Panther software stack, optimized for safety, performance and enhanced user experience, both when working with the physical robot and with its simulation.

In this article, we will dig into the new features of Panther introduced in this release, including:

  • new LED animation system that enables you to signal complex Panther behavior easily and efficiently
  • a revised version of the URDF model of Panther
  • changes for optimized safety and performance.

Let’s get started!
