Spot for Public Safety from Boston Dynamics is a legged robot that helps reduce risk in potentially dangerous scenarios, enabling first responders to safely assess and de-escalate tense or hazardous situations. Spot can gather valuable information to support response teams and facilitate remote negotiations, reducing risk to
first responders and the public. In active shooter or hostage situations, Spot can help first responders establish visual and two-way communications, so they can gather the information needed to de-escalate the situation and keep officers and bystanders out of harm’s way. Deploy Spot with specialized sensors to detect radiological and nuclear material, toxic gases, and other hazardous materials. Spot helps field operators identify and assess Chemical, Biological, Radiological,
Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) threats from a safe stand-off distance, traversing unpredictable terrain and collecting data about the risk. Investigate suspicious packages and suspected explosives with Spot while maintaining a safe perimeter. Integrate sensors to measure oxygen levels of potentially explosive environments or detect explosive materials. Equipped with cameras, x-ray devices, and the Spot Arm, Spot enables Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians to safely inspect suspicious packages.
