Ground-based Site Documentation – Landborne Robot Use Case

Documenting the ever-changing environment of a site is important to know how things are coming along and to always ensure safety of the site and personal. Site documentation is also a very time-consuming task, requiring a team to do it manually, taking notes and point things out as they go.

Landborne robots such as the Boston Dynamics Spot can complete site documentation autonomously, removing humans from potentially dangerous situations and making better use of their time.

How does ground-based site documentation work?

  1. Spot is programmed and equipped with an array of sensors to capture all the required data.
  2. When it's time to document a site, Spot will awake from its dock and begin walking around the site, capturing data as it goes, and stopping at areas of interest.
  3. The data captured can be live streamed back to a team and stored locally for fast results and high-quality data that can be later analysed.
  4. Once complete, Spot will make its way back to its dock to charge, download the data, and get ready for the next job.

Benefits of using landborne robots

  • Humans are removed from the equation preventing potentially dangerous situations from occurring.
  • Data captured is of a higher quality, thanks to the wide array of sensor Spot can carry.
  • As Spot can work autonomously workers can be used in higher level tasks.
  • Documentation frequency can be increased to around the clock, improving data and overall site safety.
