스팟, 팔 부착해 드론 트림블과 콜라보 VIDEO: Spot Robot Dog Expands with Arm Attachment, Teams up With Drone, and more!


Spot Robot Dog Expands with Arm Attachment, Teams up With Drone, and more!

Spot, the popular yellow robotic dog/grasshopper from Boston Dynamics, was officially released for sale to anyone earlier this year and it continues to make new friends – and grow new limbs apparently.

스팟, 팔 부착해 드론과 콜라보레이션한다


  보스턴 다이내믹스의 인기 있는 노란색 로봇 강아지 스팟은 올해 초 누구에게나 판매를 위해 공식 출시되었으며, 세계 각국의 새로운 친구들을 계속 사귀고 있다.




강아지가 인간의 가장 친한 친구라는 명제를 고수하며, 스팟은 드론과 새로운 친구를 사귀고 건설 기술 강자인 트림블과 협력하느라 분주하다. 


2021년에는 로봇의 두 앞다리 가운데에 로봇 상단에 부착할 팔을 구입할 수 있다.


스팟 + 드론

이스라엘에 본사를 둔 무인기 제조업체인 퍼셉토는 최근 4천5백만 달러의 투자를 받아 그 돈을 연구개발부에 유용하게 쓰고 있다. Percepto의 자율점검 및 모니터링(AIM)은 작업현장 주변의 데이터를 스스로 수집하고 분석한다. 


스팟과 팀을 이뤄 드론은 항공 데이터 수집을, 스팟은 지상 데이터 수집을 담당한다. Spot은 또한 이미지 및 열비전 하드웨어에 대한 Percepto의 탑재프로그램을 수행할 것이다.

스팟 + 트림블

Trimble과 Spot은 힘을 합쳐 로봇의 자율 기능을 사용하여 사이트 스캔, 측량 및 진행 상태 모니터링을 위한 데이터를 자동으로 수집한다. Trimble은 통합 스캐닝, 토탈 스테이션 및 GNSS 기술이 이미 설치된 통합 스팟 로봇을 판매할 계획이다

보스턴 다이내믹스는 처음부터 스팟이 실제로 문을 열 수 있는 능력을 강조해 왔으며, 내년에는 로봇 팔 부착물을 출시할 때 그것이 가능해질 것이다. 


이 팔은 또한 문 손잡이 외에 다른 물체들을 집어서 조종할 수 있다

Sticking with the theme of dogs being man’s best friend, spot has been busy making new friends with a drone and teaming up with construction technology powerhouse, Trimble. In 2021, you will have an option to buy an arm that will attach to the top of the robot right in the middle of its two front legs. 


It’s been very interesting following the development of Spot as a platform.  As I talked about on my recent appearance on the Construction Brothers Podcast, I can’t think of any piece of hardware that has captured the minds of other companies that want to integrate with it.

Spot + Drones

Just when you thought one robot was enough, now they’re teaming up with each other. Percepto, an Israeli-based drone maker, recently scored a $45 million investment and is putting that money to good use in their R&D department. Percepto’s Autonomous Inspection & Monitoring (AIM) collects and analyzes data from around the jobsite by itself. By teaming up with Spot, the drone takes care of the aerial data collection, while Spot takes care of the ground-based collection. Spot will also carry Percepto’s payloads for their imaging and thermal vision hardware.




"Combining Percepto's Sparrow drone with Spot creates a unique solution for remote inspection," said Michael Perry, VP of Business Development at Boston Dynamics, in a press release. "This partnership demonstrates the value of harnessing robotic collaborations and the insurmountable benefits to worker safety and cost savings that robotics can bring to industries that involve hazardous or remote work."

Spot + Trimble

In the same vein as the partnership with Percepto above, Trimble and Spot will combine their forces to use the robot’s autonomous functions to automatically collect data for site scans, surveying, and progress monitoring. Trimble plans to sell their integrated Spot robot with integrated scanning, total station, and GNSS technologies already installed.




"We believe the combination of Trimble's experience and industry leadership in construction technologies and Boston Dynamics' Spot can transform the way the industry operates," said Michael Perry, vice president of business development at Boston Dynamics, in a press release. "The integrated solution will enable any jobsite leader to deploy Spot and Trimble technologies to get an accurate view of construction progress through real-time data collection. With a more comprehensive view of site activity, project managers can take proactive measures to ensure on-time, on-budget and safer project delivery."


The company plans to make the Spot/Trimble robot available in the second quarter of 2021 and will have distribution partners in the US, Canada, UK, EU, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.

Spot + Robot Arm + Charging Station

Since the beginning, Boston Dynamics has touted Spot’s ability to actually open doors and, next year, that will be possible when they release the robotic arm attachment. According to TechCrunch, there isn’t a hard date on when the arm will actually become available, other than “early next year.” The arm will also be able to pick up and manipulate other objects, besides door handles.


In addition, TechCrunch also reported that the charging dock, which will allow Spot to dock and charge itself will also be available sometime next year, price to be determined.


You can see the arm and charging dock in last year’s launch video for Spot below:
