Technology

Spot’s base platform provides advanced mobility and perception to navigate stairs, gravel, and rough terrain. Collect 2D and 3D information with on-board sensors and add payloads provided by Boston Dynamics or third-parties to enhance Spot's sensing and data-processing capabilities.

BASE FEATURES

Mobility

Spot's legs keep the robot stable while it quickly navigates stairs and difficult terrain. Register additional payload weight and watch as the system automatically adapts to keep the robot moving smoothly. 

Speed
1.6 m/s
Slope
±30°
Step Height
30 cm

Perceptive

Spot’s built-in stereo cameras provide depth information to produce 3D point clouds, enabling the robot to map its surroundings and avoid obstacles. These cameras are primarily for the robot's own navigation but also provide the user with a live monochrome video feed that can be streamed through the control tablet or over the API. For high-definition, color images or increased range in 3D mapping, consider adding a Spot CAM or LIDAR to the system.

Autonomous

Spot autonomously navigates over or around obstacles in its path using the real-time mapping conducted by the perception system. Spot also comes equipped with Autowalk, an easy-to-use tablet feature that allows users to record and replay autonomous missions.

Runtime
90 mins
Battery
Swappable

Customizable

Spot can be tailored for a variety of applications. Select a Boston Dynamics or third-party payload, or design your own using our hardware and software development kits. Two payload ports provide power and communication to the robot, and the optional Spot GXP offers easy-to-use regulated power and Ethernet connection.

Autonomy

Large, dynamically changing environments are particularly difficult for robots to navigate. To improve Spot’s autonomy capabilities, both in depth and accuracy, consider adding a LIDAR to the robot. Use the LIDAR in conjunction with Spot CORE for better navigation of autonomous routes or in conjunction with both Spot CORE and Spot CAM for enhanced autonomy and telepresence.
