Spot the robot dog has officially joined the team to help perform routine maintenance and inspection services
National Grid has made Boston Dynamics’ robot dog Spot a permanent member of its workforce.
Used to perform routine maintenance and inspection services at the National Grid’s HVDC converter station in Central Massachusetts, Spot can stand in for human workers if conditions are deemed unsafe.
Given the site’s electrical equipment, workers typically were only able to perform sporadic inspections during scheduled downtime, making it harder to spot issues before it was too late.
