PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

Spot is the quadruped robot that climbs stairs and traverses rough terrain with unprecedented ease, yet is small enough to use indoors. Built to be a rugged and customizable platform, Spot has a proven track record of supporting remote operation and autonomous sensing across a variety of industries, and is remarkably intuitive, enabling you to focus on the job you do best. Whether you are a jobsite manager, sensor developer, performer, or anything in between, Spot is the adaptable platform you need to inspect, sense, perform, and more:

  • Inspect dangerous, inaccessible, and remote environments
  • Automate data collection on your site
  • Carry payloads on unstructured or unknown terrain

Control Spot with its out-of-box controller or through the developer-friendly API. Spot’s tablet controller is designed to get you up and running quickly, with easy access to many of the robot’s capabilities, including body posing, walking gaits, obstacle avoidance, local navigation, and calibration. The tablet controller also enables the creation of basic autonomous missions through Autowalk a feature where the user can create predefined routes for Spot to follow.

In some cases, such as basic remote inspection tasks, the tablet controller will be all you need to use Spot to add value to your business. To access additional capabilities and add features, develop on Spot’s Software Development Kit (SDK) to create your own applications for teleoperation, integrate payloads, and design full autonomy systems. Read more about what’s available in Spot’s SDK in our developer documentation.

The Spot system has been audited by third party security experts. Messages between the robot and clients, as well as all data logged by the robot, are encrypted. No data is sent to Boston Dynamics without your explicit consent. Read more in our Spot Privacy Notice.

Spot is intended for industrial and commercial use, by individuals trained to operate it in accordance with its user guide. This version is not intended for use in the home, or by children or others who cannot operate it responsibly. Spot is capable of incredibly robust locomotion; however, Spot should always be operated at least two meters away from people and shouldn’t be used in situations where a fall could result in injury to the operator or bystanders. It is your responsibility to ensure that Spot is used safely.

Review the full list of intended operating environments before purchase. Boston Dynamics does not recommend using Spot outside of the intended environmental conditions and noted parameters. Because hazards are application-dependent, users should conduct their own hazard and risk assessment before deploying Spot. Price in USA $74,500.00.

FAQS

What is Spot? Why would I want a legged robot?

Spot is a stable, dynamically balanced quadruped robot that can navigate tough unstructured, unknown, or antagonistic terrain with ease. Wheeled and tracked robots are limited by stairs, gaps, ground-level obstructions such as cabling and staged materials, and minor height differences in flooring. Drones work well for exterior site and facade monitoring but struggle when it comes to constrained environments, battery life, payload, and path repeatability. Human-like mobility allows Spot to navigate these environments easily without the same constraints faced by drones.

What are customers doing with Spot?

Early customers around the world are developing applications for Spot in construction, electric utility, public safety, healthcare, mining, and entertainment. By integrating Spot with software and sensors, customers are using the robot to document construction progress, monitor remote environments inside of mines or on off-shore oil rigs, add situational awareness in hazardous areas like decommissioned nuclear sites, and perform on-stage and in theme parks.

Where is Boston Dynamics’ Headquarters? Where are its robots assembled?

Boston Dynamics is based in Waltham, MA. Our products, including Spot, are designed and made in the United States.

Can Spot ship internationally? Can I export Spot outside of the US?

If you are outside of the U.S. and interested in acquiring Spot, please contact our sales team.

How does the product ship?

Spot will be ground shipped by Boston Dynamics’ preferred carrier. No other shipping options are available at this time.

How long does it take to receive Spot?

Spot will be delivered within six to eight weeks after a full payment has been received.

What is covered under the Spot standard warranty?

The standard warranty is good for 12 months after purchase and includes unlimited repairs, replacements, and associated domestic shipping expenses for defects related to materials and workmanship. Repair or replacement will be done at the discretion of Boston Dynamics. Once the unit arrives back at Boston Dynamics, turnaround time for the Spot system will be less than 10 business days. Please read the full Terms and Conditions of Sale for details.

What extended service packages are available?

Spot CARE is our premium service plan, providing extended coverage and continued expedited repair once the standard warranty expires.

What if I want to upgrade to a Spot CARE service package later?

If you choose to purchase Spot CARE after the equipment has been delivered, the robot may be subject to inspection. Damage to the robot prior to purchasing extended coverage will not be included under the plan.

Is Spot safe for use in the home?

Spot is not certified safe for in-home use or intended for use near children or others who may not appreciate the hazards associated with its operation. Do not operate Spot in any such environment; our warranty of Spot becomes void upon any such operation.

Are there limits to what I am allowed to do with Spot?

Spot should never be used to harm or intimidate any person or animal or for any illegal or ultra-hazardous purpose. Our warranty of Spot becomes void and we may disable some or all of its functionality upon any such use.

Are there any risks associated with using Spot?

Spot is designed for use in industrial or commercial applications, including largely autonomous unmanned operations with occasional interaction with trained professional users wearing personal protective equipment. Spot is capable of incredibly robust locomotion; however, limitations apply and unexpected hazards may occur. Review the full list of intended environments before your purchase. Boston Dynamics does not recommend using Spot outside of the intended environmental conditions and noted parameters. We recommend that you assess the risks of your specific application before purchasing.

What data does Spot send to Boston Dynamics?

Spot will periodically send data on performance metrics back to Boston Dynamics for the purpose of improving the robot; however, no internet connection is required to make Spot work. Spot Enterprise customers have the option to opt-out of metrics reporting. To learn more about the data collected, read our Spot Privacy Notice.
