April 2022 – Spot detects gas leaks at TotalEnergies platform

New inspection mission for Spot at the Lacq robotics platform operated by TotalEnergies. Double mission, in teleoperation and autonomous mode:

  • Reading gauges on equipment to ensure proper operation and detect any anomalies
  • Detection, localization and visualization of gas leaks

Payload configuration:

  • Spot CAM+ (360ยฐ PTZ camera) to read gauges
  • Fluke SV600 Acoustic Imager to detect gas leaks
  • Rajant ES1 Kit (mesh network) for wireless network communication

With Spot, TotalEnergies was able to detect gas leaks in less than 3 minutes within the facility.

March 2022: Spot in autonomous mission!

Did you know that Spot can perform complete autonomous tasks and data capture while carrying payloads?
Here Spot is equipped with a 360ยฐ PTZ camera combined with a thermal camera. At the top of right of the video you can follow the mission on the controller.

The Spot ๐ด๐‘ข๐‘ก๐‘œ๐‘ค๐‘Ž๐‘™๐‘˜ feature enables you to record and replay autonomous behaviors with Spot. It consists of two parts:

Recording missions: Drive Spot through a route and choose Actions for the robot to complete at points along the way.
Replaying missions: Spot will execute these movements and Actions as recorded, while adapting to minor changes in the environment.

September 2021 – New payload integration with Spot: UV-C light based disinfection module

Mobile, flexible and autonomous solution for area disinfection.

This week at Intuitive Robots office, our Spot robot increases its capabilities with the integration of a UV-C light based disinfection module designed by our partnerย DT-Solution.

The aim is to provide an autonomous and nimble robotic solution to safely disinfect areas in multiple industries (healthcare, transport, retail, industrial sites…)

We will soon start the first experiments with different partners, stay tuned!

June 2021 – Vivatech Highlights with Spot Robot

June, the 16th 2021 – Vivatech in Paris

As expected, Vivatech was unmissable! With this year of COVID, Vivatech was a limited & hybrid edition with a blend of online and in-person for an augmented event experience. A total of 26,000 people attended the conference in person and 114,000 online, bringing the total to 140,000, ย That was up from 124,000 in-person attendees in 2019, the last time VivaTech was held. In total, this yearโ€™s event reached 119 million people in 149 countries, with 1.7 billion views.

For our 5th participation, we’ve been invited by Vivatech to showcase for the first time in France one of the most advanced robot: Spot, the famous nimble four-legged robot designed by our partner, Boston Dynamics. For this occasion, we built a wooden platform composed of a ramp and a stairs, to show all the agility of Spot.
While waiting for the 2022 edition (normal edition), find our highlights of this 2021 edition!
