This Grizzly Won't Eat You So Much as Carry Your Luggage

By Andrew Tarantola on at

It's a long hike through difficult terrain out to your favourite picnic spot—a trek made worse when you have to lug the champage flutes and foie gras along. But with this autonomous ATV from Cleartrail, you'll barely have to lift a trigger finger.

The Grizzly Robotic ATV measures 68.9 x 50.5 x 31.9-inches and stands on 26-inch rims with nearly as much ground clearance as a Subaru Outback. The 1450 pound machine is powered by an array of marine-grade sealed lead-acid batteries with a combined 600Ah output. This allows the ROV to cruise over rugged landscapes for up to 12 hours or tow a 1320 pound load for up to three before requiring a 12-hour recharge.

The Grizzly is also laden with a variety of telemetry sensors and runs on the open source Robot Operating System. This awesome autonomous off-roader doesn't come with a pricetag, only a quote request which means you'd better really hate carrying stuff to justify buying it. [Clearpath via IEEE - Image: Clearpath]
