“There are thousands of pounds of pressurized combustible material out there. High-pressure oil and gas can create risks for people working in close proximity. If we could have a robot with the proper sensors out there, we’d much rather do that.”

Adam Ballard, Facilities Technology Manager, bp

“Every 12 hours, we follow the same path through the plant, and we’re assessing situational awareness. It’s important to communicate across shift changes and make sure you’re handing off critical information. Spot is going to capture things we may not notice or that we're not always around to see.”

Christopher Phillips, Production Technician, Woodside

READ CUSTOMER STORY >

“I picked Spot because the platform exceeded other solutions we saw on the market. With its ability to move through a construction environment, and then, its ability to integrate, we could access the platform’s software and build with APIs if we needed to.”

Tristen Magallanes, Innovation Analyst, Swinerton
