Boston Dynamics Spot
Spot is the quadruped robot that climbs stairs and traverses rough terrain with unprecedented ease yet is small enough to use indoors. Built to be a rugged and customisable platform, Spot has a proven track record of supporting remote operation and autonomous sensing across a variety of industries, and is remarkably intuitive, enabling you to focus on the job you do best. Whether you are a jobsite manager, sensor developer, performer, or anything in between, Spot is the adaptable platform you need to inspect, sense, perform, and more:
- Inspect dangerous, inaccessible, and remote environments
- Automate data collection on your site
- Carry payloads on unstructured or unknown terrain
Control Spot with its out-of-box controller or through the developer-friendly API. Spot’s tablet controller is designed to get you up and running quickly, with easy access to many of the robot’s capabilities, including body posing, walking gaits, obstacle avoidance, local navigation, and calibration. The tablet controller also enables the creation of basic autonomous missions through Autowalk a feature where the user can create predefined routes for Spot to follow.
In some cases, such as basic remote inspection tasks, the tablet controller will be all you need to use Spot to add value to your business. To access additional capabilities and add features, develop on Spot’s Software Development Kit (SDK) to create your own applications for teleoperation, integrate payloads, and design full autonomy systems. Read more about what’s available in Spot’s SDK in our developer documentation.
The Spot system has been audited by third party security experts. Messages between the robot and clients, as well as all data logged by the robot, are encrypted. No data is sent to Boston Dynamics without your explicit consent. Read more in our Spot Privacy Notice.
Spot is intended for industrial and commercial use, by individuals trained to operate it in accordance with its user guide. This version is not intended for use in the home, or by children or others who cannot operate it responsibly. Spot is capable of incredibly robust locomotion; however, Spot should always be operated at least two meters away from people and shouldn’t be used in situations where a fall could result in injury to the operator or bystanders. It is your responsibility to ensure that Spot is used safely.
Review the full list of intended operating environments before purchase. Boston Dynamics does not recommend using Spot outside of the intended environmental conditions and noted parameters. Because hazards are application-dependent, users should conduct their own hazard and risk assessment before deploying Spot.
