spot®

Spot, developed by Boston Dynamics, is a nimble, four-legged robot designed to be rugged and customizable. It’s well suited for unstructured environments and is fully capable of climbing stairs and traversing rough terrain. With the support of Altohelix Robotics, robotics researchers can take full advantage of ROS capabilities out-of-the-box, and leverage widely available open-source libraries and tools.

SPOT ARM

Spot Arm helps you use the robot to perform real, physical work in human-centric environments. Equipped to operate through both semi-autonomous actions or telemanipulation, the arm will open doors, pick, push, place, or drag objects, and maneuver new situations at the push of a button or swipe of a screen.

GET STARTED QUICKLY

Our team of experienced integrators and ROS experts can help you choose the right payload configuration for your application, and even integrate and set up your custom Spot so it’s all ready to go for you out-of-the-box. As with our wheeled robots, the ROS-enabled Spot comes with step-by-step tutorials and setup documentation so you can get started quickly with your research and application development .

FULLY EXTENSIBLE

Spot comes with a dedicated computer, power and communication interfaecs and a flexible payload mounting systems, allowing you to easily integrate a wide variety of ROS-supported sensors and components. Fully tailor Spot to your application by integrating IMUs, additional cameras, radar, lidars, manipulators – like the Kinova Gen3 lite or HEBI arm – and custom payloads.

VERSATILE APPLICATIONS

Capable of traversing rough, unstructured terrain yet small enough to use indoors, Spot is suitable for a wide variety of research applications and industries including remote sensing and inspection, construction monitoring, site documentation, radiation detection, environmental monitoring and more.
