Spot Robot.jpg

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.

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.

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.
