Spot CORE: your local 16 GB processor

It allows you to launch your own software locally without going through the Spot network. This has several advantages:

  • You benefit from high-bandwidth, low-latency connections while designing your program
  • The “payload” that comes with Spot CORE gives you access to an open programming environment, which is not possible with Spot’s on-board processors
  • The processor comes pre-installed with Ubuntu 18.04, and you can use the SDK designed for Spot to immediately access the heart of the machine and change it at will
  • You can also format the hard drive to install your own operating system

A great range of connections for a more personalised experience

The Spot robot is not a mobile robot designed merely to stroll through a lab or factory – although these features are already top-notch. With the CORE processor you get a new range of connections for customising your robot according to your plans:

  • 3 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 ports
  • 1 HDMI connector
  • 1 Ethernet port
  • 1 RS232 serial port
  • 2 display ports
