Upgrading from Kinetic to Melodic

In early 2020 Clearpath Robotics added support for ROS Melodic running on Ubuntu 18.04 to our line of robots. New robots will ship with Ubuntu 18.04 and ROS Melodic pre-installed, but older robots may also be upgraded.


It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that any essential files are properly backed-up before upgrading their robot.

The process for upgrading your robot is to first back everything up, then reinstall the robot’s OS, and finally restore your backed-up data.
