In June 2020, Boston Dynamics unveiled its bright yellow robot Spot, which is available for purchase by the general public. This famous robot dog has now become a must-have assistant in manufacturing and industrial facilities.

The latest update to Spot's software has been unveiled, which is that the Boston Dynamics team has packaged the robot's applications into a more ready-to-use interface. Customers can get this robot and install it without writing code, without having to worry about whether they can work with the machine.

Spot's released updates make getting information about the data a top priority, and Spot chief engineer Zach Jakowski says researchers are making progress in their long-term efforts to bring artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to Spot.

The goal of the robot is that maintenance staff can program tasks, and the IT department, which is not a robotics specialist, can integrate that data into the rest of the systems.

Remind the development of AiFi, which is the use of sophisticated artificial intelligence models with a large number of cameras located under the ceiling to understand everything that happens in stores - tracking people as well as recognizing actions and goods.
