The Spot Arm enables the robot to more effectively act on data and perform physical work.
eBook: Your Guide to Spot in Academia & Research
The Spot Arm offers a new way for the robot to work in the world: both remotely controlled and autonomous tasks are possible—and easy—with this seamless solution.
When equipped with an arm, Spot uses its full body to balance and position itself for manipulation tasks, improving its range of motion without sacrificing mobility.
The Spot Arm enables a range of manual, semi-automated, and fully-automated manipulation and sensing actions to fit your application’s needs.
An intuitive tablet interface and API make it easy to control the arm. Operators can complete complex manipulation tasks with minimal training.
Being able to directly interact with its environment allows Spot to perform a wider range of tasks in your worksite.
Grasp, lift, carry, place, and drag a variety of items with the arm's 6-degrees of freedom and gripper.
Use the in-gripper LED illuminator and 4K camera to inspect objects and equipment before taking action.
Semi-autonomously turn valves, flip levers, open doors, and manipulate other objects with constrained movement.
With the push of a button or swipe of a screen, the arm will open doors, flip switches, point sensors, and more. Whether you are using teleoperation or autonomous behaviors, the Spot Arm offers you the tools for success.
Integrated sensors include time of flight (ToF) and inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors to enable actuate control, as well as a 4k RGB camera in the gripper.
The Spot Arm provides researchers and developers with another dimension for innovation. Offering precise repeatable actions out of the box, the arm, literally and figuratively, opens doors to new research applications.
With the Spot Arm, operators can issue high level commands via the tablet to get up and running with very little training. On-board sensors simplify manual control of the arm when out of line of sight, allowing operators to complete tasks like nuclear material handling or suspicious package investigation while from a safe distance.
