The robot is based on the four-legged Boston Dynamics robot called Spot with artificial intelligence application, autonomous navigation, remote operation technologies and an artificial intelligence processing service unit developed by the group’s robotics laboratory to use the robot in various industrial tasks.
The Factory Safety Service Robot is the first collaborative project with Boston Dynamics, the company said. The robot helps detect hazards and ensure the safety of people in industrial sites.
“We also continue to create intelligent services that detect hazards in industrial sites and help support a safe work environment through our ongoing collaboration with Boston Dynamics.”
With a built-in thermal camera and a 3D LiDAR sensor, the robot can detect people around it, monitor situations with high temperatures and potential fire hazards, and know if the door is open or closed.
The robot can be controlled remotely through a secure web page that provides a live feed of its movements around the plant, allowing office staff to monitor industrial areas remotely.
AI technology also allows the robot to detect dangers and send alerts to managers through the secure web page.

Hyundai has equipped the robot with several upgrades
Based on these functions, the robot provides real-time image sharing of on-site situations and activity history with the control center as well as support for rapid response in case of emergency by issuing an alarm via the control page.
Managers can switch to manual operation when needed to take a closer look at important industrial sites.
It is also possible to connect several plant service safety robots to the control system to inspect different areas simultaneously.
The four-legged robot can navigate through narrow spaces as well as identify blind areas that are difficult to see with the human eye.
The application of group technologies to the Spot robot provides enhanced autonomy features. Based on the group’s experience in developing service robots. The robot is equipped with various technologies suitable for autonomous patrol services within industrial site environments. Including task management and vision technology based on deep learning.
And through the pilot process at the Kia plant in South Korea. The group uses the robot to support late-night security patrols and create a safer environment for workers.
The group is also subject to a proof-of-concept and evaluation of its efficacy and applicability prior to the expansion of patrol areas and a review of additional deployment in other industrial sites.
