Follow 'Spot' Robot Along Field Tests, Inspecting Construction Sites

Boston Dynamics  has begun field testing their Spot robot for commercial usage around the world. After an initial mapping run, Spot autonomously navigated two dynamic construction sites in Tokyo and used a specialized payload for surveying work progress. An additional camera in its hand lets Spot do even more detailed inspection work on site. The company says the robot will be available in the second half of 2019 for a variety of applications.
