Brief 

Project progress can be monitored remotely and in 3D with a laser scanner and Trimble FieldLink software mounted aboard Boston Dynamics’ site-roving Spot robot. “Using the X7 laser scanner integrated with Spot lets us document changes on the jobsite and make important decisions in the field, rather than waiting hours or potentially days for the information to be relayed to our project staff,” says Thai Nguyen, director of virtual design and construction at Hensel Phelps.

Insight

rimble has released the X7 3D laser scanner and FieldLink software fully integrated with Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot. This turnkey solution from Trimble, jointly developed with Boston Dynamics, facilitates autonomous operation on construction sites and takes advantage of the robot’s unique capabilities to navigate challenging, dynamic and potentially unsafe environments.

Trimble’s 3D data capture technology, integrated with Spot, enables a continuous flow of information between the field and the office for consistent, ongoing documentation of jobsite progress.”The relationship between Trimble and Boston Dynamics is really special. Users don’t have to figure out the integration of the scanner. It also enables us to work with only one vendor,” said Thai Nguyen, director of Virtual Design and Construction, Hensel Phelps.

Trimble Spot on with Autonomous Robotic Scanning solution

“Using the X7 laser scanner integrated with Spot lets us document changes on the jobsite and make important decisions in the field, rather than waiting hours or potentially days for the information to be relayed to our project staff. This allows us to make the best decisions as quickly as possible with the best information.

Automated capture of field construction data

“Our construction customers require turnkey solutions for autonomous jobsite documentation and analysis. Boston Dynamics’ strategic alliance with Trimble has allowed us to build that solution collaboratively by combining our strengths in robotics and construction, respectively,” said Brian Ringley, construction product manager at Boston Dynamics.
