A Robot Dog Offered To Undertake A Full-Time Job At Oil Rig

Robot dogs developed by Boston Dynamics now become a key factor for future breakthroughs.

Spot, the renowned robot dog developed by Boston Dynamics, has gained its own reputation over the Internet world with a handful of videos that show how this four-legged robot handles complicated tasks like taking clean dishes from the dishwasher, opening the door, climbing the stairs or even mastering backflips. The robot dog has already impressed many people and not it’s even asked to undertake a full-time job at an oil rig in Norway.

According to the company, Spot gets hired by Aker BP and it’ll be responsible for oil inspections and detecting hydrocarbon leaks at the oil field named Skarv, which currently locates in the Norwegian Sea. In order to better the safety of offshore operations as well as prevent human lives from risks, the company also hopes to run the robot sometime this year to patrol its gas and oil production vessels. Bloomberg said in a report that Spot will be integrated with a company-owned software.

Aker BP has teamed up with an AI company to test Spot in hazardous simulated environments. The company’s CEO Karl Hersvik also underlined the importance of applying robotic advancements into their businesses, especially when it comes to digitalizing the operations. Dubbed as “a digital journey”, Spot now becomes a key factor for not only the breakthrough in productivity and quality but also the safety of workers.

Soon after the first introduction launched last year, the robotic dog started going on sale and are available for commercial lease. A police department in the US was the first organization that hires Spot to take part in its bomb squad.
