I already had materials about it with the help of Google Search .


I need helpful materials about its URDF model & its Gazebo simulation because there are no materials about it in roswiki like the other famous robots that support ROS .


So, I asked my question because there are a lot of experienced developers in this forum who may know helpful materials ( links,books,tutorials) , sites or teams that work on this robot or similar robots to it .

any help ,please

Go take a look at the Sparkfun product page.

The Wild Thumper doesn't contain any electronics, so you won't find specific ROS drivers for it. Rather, you'll want to pick out a suitable motor controller, preferably one with ROS support.

It looks like there are a couple of people building ROS robots on top of the Wild Thumper. You may find their work useful: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=wild+thumper+ROS

If you're looking for *specific* materials, you should indicate that you've done some initial research and ask specifically for the things you haven't been able to find. I've updated the topic of your question to be more appropriate.
