Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot dog has been leveled up and it can now opened closed doors with its arm autonomously during Autowalk missions. This feature is in beta now, but the company hopes that it will open up new inspection routes and enable Spot to move between rooms on its own, even in an empty facility.
Hardware upgrades include a new fully embedded audio visual system consisting of safety lights located around the robot’s body, a safety buzzer, and a speaker. The system comes pre-configured with light patterns and tones that will alert workers that Spot is performing actions in the area for enhanced safety as well as awareness.
