What is SPOT Core I/O?

A payload serves to give a robotic platform a wider range of connection possibilities. And the Boston Dynamics SPOT Core I/O has a Jetson Xavier NX processor with a GPU for handling all the calculations required to operate the various accessories you’re now able to add.

In addition to improving connectivity and computing power, it has a rugged design that delivers high protection against dust and water ingress. In addition, the Spot robot payload promises high data communication security: SSD disk encryption, TLS network encryption, user authentication, etc.

What can I use my Spot robot payload for?

With this Spot robot payload, you get:

  • Sufficiently high computing and graphics power to handle video output and data from various sensors
  • Configurable inputs and outputs: GPIO, PWM, I2C, etc.
  • Numerous communication ports: Ethernet and USB
  • Additional connectivity with the optional 5G/LTE antenna
  • The possibility to install a laser range finder
