The *ROS simulation of PAL Robotics mobile base, named  PMB-2
<http://pal-robotics.com/en/products/pmb2/>  *, is available now and ready
to download! You will find all the steps in the  *
<http://wiki.ros.org/Robots/PMB-2> ROS wiki* .

This 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

PMB-2 has a maximum speed of 1 m/s and can move around with its traversable
step and traversable gap of 1.5 cm. 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.

You can watch PMB-2 first prototype in action in this  video
