Trimble Introduced a Version of the Spot Robot With an Automated 3D Scanner

Trim­ble intro­duced the Trim­ble X7 3D scan­ner, which is ful­ly inte­grat­ed into the Boston Dynam­ics Spot. In addi­tion to the X7 scan­ner, the expan­sion kit includes the new Velo­dyne lidar, which is designed to increase the range and accu­ra­cy of the autonomous Spot sys­tem for use on large sites.

Such a sys­tem almost com­plete­ly auto­mates the process of scan­ning the ter­ri­to­ry and makes it easy to cre­ate a high-pre­ci­sion 3D image for com­par­i­son with CAD / BIM mod­els and use it for design ver­i­fi­ca­tion, mon­i­tor­ing of the con­struc­tion process, analy­sis of devi­a­tions and qual­i­ty con­trol of work.

Accord­ing to the com­pa­ny, the use of the robot will improve safe­ty in the work­place and solve the prob­lem of labor short­ages. Since it is pos­si­ble to send the Spot and the X7 Laser Scan­ner into unsafe envi­ron­ments to per­form dirty, bor­ing or dan­ger­ous tasks.

The mod­i­fied Spot is almost com­plete­ly auto­mat­ed, equipped with a self-load­ing sta­tion that turns the robot into a tru­ly autonomous remote con­trol tool. With built-in dock detec­tion, Spot auto­mat­i­cal­ly rec­og­nizes where to dock to charge Spot and the X7 Laser Scan­ner. And the dock­’s built-in Giga­bit Eth­er­net con­nec­tion allows you to quick­ly down­load scan data from the X7 Laser Scan­ner and imme­di­ate­ly access scan data at the end of a mis­sion or upload a new scan path.
