Boston Dynamics has teamed up with South Florida-based startup Vinsa to build models for visual AI workflows. As part of the tie-up, Vinsa’s Intelligence Models could help bring new visual AI use cases to Spot, Boston Dynamics’ quadruped robotic platform, as well as other robotics using visual AI.
When combined with robotics such as Spot, Vinsa’s Intelligence Models can be deployed in as little as 30-45 days, and realize incremental ROI by reducing operational costs. Examples include automating labor-intensive tasks such as reading analog gauges, performing facility inspections, detecting anomalies on a manufacturing production line, and monitoring equipment and people to improve safety and maintain optimal machine performance.
“Partnering with Vinsa for this type of software solution enables Spot users to derive meaningful insights from data collected by the robot,” said Michael Perry, Vice President of Business Development for Boston Dynamics.
Since the Spot early adopter program launched in September 2019, customers around the world have had success building software applications and custom payloads on the platform in industries including: construction, energy utility, public safety, mining, and entertainment.
Currently in development for Spot and Vinsa is sensing, computing, manipulation, and power.
