Boston Dynamics release spot 3.0 Robot. A Sensing Solution for the Real World – the Spot Release 3.0 adds functionality to make Spot the data collection solution you need for safer & more efficient inspection rounds.
“We’ve been working closely with Spot users in asset-intensive industries to operationalize the robot on their sites. With Spot Release 3.0, we’ve added flexible autonomy & repeatable data capture, making Spot the data collection solution you need to make inspection rounds safer & more efficient”team Boston Dynamics.
Every step of setting up Spot’s automated inspections has been streamlined for effective data capture & processing. Schedule missions for Spot to collect photos, thermal images, point clouds, & other critical data; process that data into valuable signals at the edge with computer vision models & create custom uploads to send those signals to your existing systems, so it’s easy to keep all of your data in one place for analysis & review. Spot Release 3.0 makes dynamic sensing available to everyone. Here’s a detailed look at what’s new.
Spot’s Autowalk system has logged thousands of miles in industrial facilities & on construction sites around the world. Release 3.0 adds powerful new capabilities to Autowalk, enabling operators to record autonomous missions that implement dynamic sensing sitewide.
Mission editing: Map your entire site by extending paths & adding new inspection Actions to existing missions over multiple recording sessions. Mission planning: Save time by selecting which inspection Actions you want Spot to perform & it will take the shortest path to collect your data. Dynamic replanning: Don’t miss inspections due to changes on site. Spot will replan around blocked paths to make sure you get the data you need. Scheduled missions: Inspect your site after hours with simple scheduling tools & tablet-free, unsupervised autonomy.
DATA COLLECTION WITH AI AT THE EDGE
Release 3.0 makes data capture more reliable & easier to process. Now you can connect computer vision models to Spot, adding valuable context to teleoperation & turning raw mission data into actionable signals at the edge.
Repeatable image capture: Capture the same image from the same angle every time with scene-based camera alignment for the Spot CAM+ pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera.
Live review of computer vision models: Use models from TensorFlow or choose a model from our API library to carry out inspection tasks such as gauge reading, thermal analysis, or acoustic anomaly detection. Preview computer vision models on the tablet & create smart Actions that process images within Autowalk.
Spot closes the loop with the systems you already use to understand & manage your operations, helping your team manage assets, detect anomalies sooner, track work, build digital twins & more.
Upload data: Automatically push data into your existing systems at the end of a mission with custom code.
Cloud-compatible: Connect Spot to AWS, Azure, IBM Maximo & Other systems with existing or easy-to-build integrations.
Scout: Use Boston Dynamics’ web-based remote operation application to manage your entire dynamic sensing fleet, schedule missions & review data collected on site.
ADDITIONAL NEW FEATURES
Release 3.0 contains dozens of other features designed to help your team operationalize Spot & enable dynamic sensing on your site.
Payloads: Remotely restart payloads, easily configure payload parameters & more.
Manipulation: Remotely operate the Spot Arm with ease through rear Spot CAM integration & split-screen view. Arm improvements also include added functionality for push-bar doors, revamped grasping UX & updated SDK. Sounds: Keep trained bystanders aware of Spot with configurable warning sounds.
