Spot Robot Infrastructure Setup

[Previous] [Home]

The goal of this project is to create a collaborative project infrastructure in docker with ROS compatibility for Spot

I lead an effort to create the infrastructure that supports collaborative development for projects using the Boston Dynamics Spot robot; My efforts include: (1) making the development environment in docker such that it is compatible with ROS (using spot_ros); (2) investigate different network connections; (3) make available functionalities including keyboard control, camera image streaming, 3D SLAM mapping, localization, navigation, etc. Below are two videos showing early stage milestones.
