ROS Software Maintainer: Clearpath Robotics
Kingfisher M100 is an agile, easy-to-use unmanned surface vehicle (USV), suitable for research and rapid prototyping applications. Kingfisher includes an onboard FitPC2 running our clearpath_base driver node, and a long-range radio modem for communication with other Kingfishers and your base-station equipment.

clearpath_base: Provides a driver node which consumes geometry_msgs/Twist messages on the cmd_vel topic and interprets them as movement commands to Kingfisher. This node provides topics with voltage and current status, as well as compass heading.
clearpath_kingfisher_localization: Provides an outdoor position estimate for Kingfisher, based on GPS and compass data, with RTK if available. Coming soon.
