Boston Dynamics Spot Robot
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 is the quadruped 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 a proven track record of supporting remote operation and autonomous sensing across a variety of industries, and is remarkably intuitive, enabling you to focus on the job you do best. Whether you are a jobsite manager, sensor developer, performer, or anything in between, Spot is the adaptable platform you need to inspect, sense, perform, and more:
- Inspect dangerous, inaccessible, and remote environments
- Automate data collection on your site
- Carry payloads on unstructured or unknown terrain
Control Spot with its out-of-box controller or through the developer-friendly API. Spot’s tablet controller is designed to get you up and running quickly, with easy access to many of the robot’s capabilities, including body posing, walking gaits, obstacle avoidance, local navigation, and calibration. The tablet controller also enables the creation of basic autonomous missions through Autowalk, a feature where the user can create predefined routes for Spot to follow.
The Spot system has been audited by third-party security experts. Messages between the robot and clients, as well as all data logged by the robot, are encrypted. No data is sent to Boston Dynamics without your explicit consent.

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 an Ethernet connection.
MFE has designed an optical gas imaging camera that can be mounted to Spot or used as a hand-held device. Now, you can utilize Spots autonomous inspection capabilities to visualize methane, propane, butane, and many other hydrocarbon gas leaks. For more information, click here.
Scout is a teleoperations software that allows your team never to have to step foot on a dangerous site. Teleoperation enables you to control Spot from a virtual control room to collect data in real-time or follow along on Spots missions from your browser. Click here for more information.
