Boston Dynamics has repeatedly demonstrated the usefulness of its four-legged Spot robot. We saw how robot dogs were used to help maintain social distance, clean public places and hospitals, deliver vital medicines during the quarantine caused by COVID-19 disease, as well as for decommission of nuclear sites, factory floors, construction sites, and even for herding sheep and farming.

Today, we’re open-sourcing our work to make mobile robots part of a COVID-19 response to reduce risk to frontline medical staff. Here’s an overview of how we plan to use mobile robots to combat the virus: https://t.co/7sVHbvlb1B pic.twitter.com/m6dDTN7aN4
Recently, Spot began work at @insideFPL, a @nexteraenergy company, where it can be deployed amidst storms to collect substation data earlier, allowing improved coverage without risk to humans.— Boston Dynamics (@BostonDynamics) February 3, 2020

In all these cases, the robot was provided on a short-term rental basis as part of the Boston Dynamics Early Adopter Program. Under that program, over 150 Spot robots were successfully used by domestic and international businesses and research facilities. But now the situation is changing, and companies in the United States have the opportunity to acquire Spot in their possession.
Today we're announcing a partnership with @OTTOMotors to coordinate mobile robots in the warehouse. Together we hope to provide a more flexible warehouse automation solution.— Boston Dynamics (@BostonDynamics) March 3, 2020

Adam gives steampunk a whole new meaning with his first Spot project, a robot-driven carriage! Watch @donttrythis build his first integration on the platform and use the API to adjust Spot's gait to provide the right forces to tow him around San Francisco: https://t.co/5zP2uGpo3b pic.twitter.com/Yax9Y3HcdJ— Boston Dynamics (@BostonDynamics) February 18, 2020
