Spot now works on ROS out-of-the-box enabling you to start working on the next big thing without having to learn a new interface or create your own ROS drivers. By using the included ROS driver, you unlock the ability to easily control the robot via ROS while accessing all the onboard sensing data streams, including odomtery, images and point clouds from each of the five on-board cameras, plus data for any additional payloads you choose to integrate.
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.
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 .
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.
