Physical Tools

These are the most common tools we use at Clearpath Robotics to build and maintain robots. There is a much longer list of tools we use to design, test, and build more complicated aspects of our robots—such as Printed Circuit Board Assemblies. The intention of this page is to show you what tools we use for maintenance, and for adding sensors to our robots.

Contact Us

Contact our Sales team at if you want us to add sensors or custom attachments to your robot. We can suggest hardware and software that will meet your application goals.

You can see some of our past Integration Services projects here.


Some tools are specific to the electrical connectors we use at Clearpath Robotics. For example, we show a Panduit crimper for ring terminals. This suggestion is because use Panduits ring terminals in our cable assemblies. There are other manufacturers that make comparable products, such as Molex, Phoenix Contact, and Tyco Electronics.
