Robot gets field-tested at construction sites

A recently released video shows Boston Dynamics' Spot robot climbing stairs and walking over platforms.
The impressive machine, which is now being readied for widespread commercial use, recently underwent a field test in Tokyo which involved navigating a couple of busy construction sites.

Equipped with a payload designed to perform work surveillance tasks, the plucky robot seemed to have no difficulties making its way up narrow staircases and across scaffolding.
"We have begun field testing the Spot robot for commercial usage around the world," the firm wrote in the video's caption. "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 robot will be available for businesses to purchase from the second half of next year.
