Redefine your day-to-day with Spot

From factory floors to construction sites to research labs and beyond, Spot works so your team can excel. As a dynamic sensing platform, Spot provides valuable insights into routine operations, site health, or potentially hazardous situations. With Spot, your team can focus on the things that matter most, while staying out of harm's way.

Simple

Spot is easy to use and intuitive to learn, making it quick to deploy for both manual operations and autonomous missions. You can generate immediate value for your organization with pre-configured packages for inspection, research, and hazardous response. Or, if you want to think out-of-the box, Spot's 14kg of payload capacity, robust API, and comprehensive documentation allow you to equip it for your specific needs no matter your application.

Scalable

Whether you are operating one Spot or an entire fleet, from six feet or six hundred miles away, we offer the complete solution for an enterprise deployment. Our software helps you manage your fleet and makes your data accessible in one place, with flexible communication options to keep you connected and informed. Boston Dynamics' support and service teams are available with training and resources to jumpstart your journey with Spot and enable ongoing success.

Reliable

Extensive testing in the lab and field has created a robot that you can trust to work day-in and day-out. Spot can operate without interventions-autonomously charging, dynamically replanning around new obstacles, and self-righting if it falls. With over 1,000 robots in customer hands today, you can rest assured that Spot is a dependable coworker that delivers consistent results.

"We can really benefit from the robot all throughout the day. The technology is there, the technology works, and now it is more about getting the industry to come together around it. Our clients are demanding this type of innovation."

Carlos Crespo

Robotics and AI Skill Center Manager, Acciona

View Case Study

"We have more than 35,000 civil works components to check and maintain...But some of them are very hard to reach and can be even dangerous to inspect for the maintenance team. It became obvious to use Spot to help operators complete their mission."
