Boston Dynamics and MFE Inspection Solutions demonstrate SPOT at the 23rd World Petroleum Congress.

MFE-Is General Manager Jason Acerbi and Boston Dynamics Sales Manager Chris McCasky were attracting an audience by demonstrating the quadruped robot “Spots'” extraordinary data collection capabilities at Hess Corporations booth when Shern-Min Chow from KHOU-TV approached them for an interview.  SPOT has made its way into several refineries creating digital twins, turning valves, or locating leaks through optical gas and sound imaging. In addition, Hess Corporation and many other energy companies have adopted SPOT to conduct routine maintenance and manage risk.
