A nimble robot that climbs stairs and traverses rough terrain with unprecedented ease, yet is small enough to use indoors. Built to be a rugged and customizable platform, Spot has an industry track record in remote operation and autonomous sensing.
Spot goes where wheeled robots cannot, while carrying payloads with endurance far beyond aerial drones. With 360° vision and obstacle avoidance, the robot can be driven remotely or taught routes and actions to perform autonomous missions.
Developers can create custom methods of controlling Spot, program autonomous missions, design payloads to expand the robot’s capabilities, and integrate sensor information into data analysis tools. Spot’s mounting rails, payload ports, and software development kit give customers the tools they need to customize the robot for their application.
By integrating Spot with software and sensors, the robot can perform tasks in a variety of industries. From documenting construction progress to monitoring remote environments, adding situational awareness, and even performing, Spot can be trusted to get the job done.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Integrate Spot with a 360° camera and site documentation software to reduce time required to capture data and enhance employee productivity in documenting and managing site progress.
DIGITAL TWIN CREATION
Equip Spot with a laser scanner and program routine scanning routes to create digital twins of worksites and identify rework sooner.
Attach a Spot CAM to the base platform to collect color visuals and read analog gauges measuring pressure, flow, temperature, and more. Attach a PTZ to the Spot CAM to get 30x optical zoom and inspect gauges from afar.
Add processing to visuals collected by the Spot CAM payload to detect water and steam leaks around plants and note equipment with degraded performance.
NOISE ANOMALY DETECTION
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.
