SpotWalk is HoloBuilder’s integration with Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot. The integration allows control of autonomous photo capture from the HoloBuilder JobWalk App (iOS and Android).
Teach Spot a path to walk and define capture locations where Spot will take 360° progress photos.
Have Spot repeat the trained path autonomously and capture 360° photos at the predefined locations.
How It Works
Upload the data captured with Spot the digital progress record in the secure HoloBuilder Cloud for remote site access and team viewing/collaboration.
Hensel Phelps, a nationwide leader in the development, construction and management of landmark buildings, has been deploying Spot at the Harvey Milk Terminal 1 Project in the San Francisco International Airport.
Pomerleau, a leading Canadian General Contractor, is putting SpotWalk to work in Montreal, Canada.

Single Source of Truth
SpotWalk eliminates time-consuming photo management and avoids confusion by creating a single source of truth that can be accessed by all stakeholders on-site or from a remote location.
Documenting site progress at the end of the day can be tedious, but SpotWalk can be trained to autonomously tour a programmed route, taking 360° photos as it walks. By delegating this work to technology, site workers can be released from draining and repetitive tasks to address mission-critical work like coordinating work or managing risk.
For compliance purposes, it’s important to have a consistent digital progress record, but often other important work gets in the way of consistent 360° photo capture. This can result in photo documentation with gaps and inconsistencies, which could generate problems further down the line. However, you can always rely on SpotWalk to put your progress documentation on autopilot.
Autonomous Photo Documentation Made Easy
"HoloBuilder does more than collect and organize the 360-degree images they shoot. It also employs machine vision AI to make sense of them."
"This partnership ... removes a time-consuming step while providing accurate construction photos with a high degree of fidelity."
"According to Boston Dynamics Vice President of Business Development Michael Perry, the SpotWalk application is the first-of-its-kind integration for their robots."
"The integration creates repeatable, actionable data, addresses all phases of a construction project, and improves productivity."
SpotWalk in the Press

Does HoloBuilder sell/resell Spot?
The regular HoloBuilder platform provides 360° Photo Capture workflows to create a digital record of your site’s progress remote site access. HoloBuilder’s mobile JobWalk App and a 360° camera are all you need to get started with 360° Photo Capture.
SpotWalk can be added to the HoloBuilder mobile JobWalk App to automate the 360° Photo Capture in the field with the Spot robot. The photos that SpotWalk captures are uploaded to the HoloBuilder platform and will be integrated into your Digital Progress Record automatically.
