Available for purchase since 2020, Boston Dynamics’ four-legged robot dog, Spot, has been mostly deployed as an autonomous inspection and exploration tool. Today the company revealed several updates to Spot that will further improve its ability to carry out those types of tasks, including finally being able to use handles to open doors all by itself.
According to Boston Dynamics, there are now over 1,000 Spot robots in active use around the world in over 35 countries, but the new updates to the robot announced today are a move to help further expand Spot’s adoption by making it easier and safer to use, and much better at navigating a wider range of difficult terrain.
