Equip Spot with a microphone or utilize the one on the Spot CAM to detect abnormal operating noises like ticking, grinding, or whirring.
Equip Spot with a thermal camera to detect issue-indicating hot spots on machines or electrical conductors.
Equip Spot with a gas sensor to detect dangerous leaks earlier without risk to humans or animals.
Equip Spot with a radiation sensor to detect hazardous levels in nuclear reactors or near disaster sites.
Drive Spot underground remotely post-blast to look for cracks and instabilities and ensure safe conditions for workers.
Search and Alert
Use Spot to remotely search and scan hazardous environments or disaster areas.
Conduct virtual patient interviews or deliver medicine and food by mounting a tablet and other equipment on Spot.
Learn how Brigham and Women's Hospital is using Spot to protect healthcare workers.
“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
“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
Spot’s base platform provides advanced mobility and perception to navigate stairs, gravel, and rough terrain while collecting 2D and 3D information with on board-sensors. Add payloads provided by Boston Dynamics or third-parties to enhance Spot’s sensing and data processing capabilities
Build custom applications and payload hardware for Spot with the Developer Platform. Application developers can use the Spot Software Development Kit (SDK) to control the robot, access sensor data, and integrate with Spot’s autonomy system. Payload developers can add custom sensors or extra compute power to Spot through mechanical, electrical, communication, and software interfaces.
Build your own:
Program your own application and design a custom UI to control Spot remotely and see through Spot's cameras in real-time. Send commands like body posing, velocity, and direction to the robot.
Learn more about our tablet interface and autonomous route planner Autowalk, built on the SDK.
Build your own:
Record maps and create your own missions with behavior trees by programming actions associated with specific points on the map. Later, use those missions to autonomously navigate your planned routes.
Learn more about HoloBuilder's custom-built app SpotWalk.
Build your own:
Use Spot’s mechanical and electrical interfaces, documented in the SDK, to integrate sensors or custom payloads.
