Clearpath Robotics has designed an all-electric utility vehicle called the Grizzly that can trek over practically any terrain. The large ATV-like robotic vehicle has 8 inches of ground clearance and huge 26” tires, and it can carry a payload weighing up to 600 kg. The Grizzly has an 80 horsepower electric engine that can propel it at speeds up to 11 mph, and the front axle articulation of 16 degrees means that the robot can take on 6-inch obstacles without losing traction or lifting even a single wheel off the ground.
