Turner conducts a pilot program to field test the capabilities of Boston Dynamics’ Spot – a mobility robot that can safely traverse construction sites and capture vital project data. Turner is testing Spot’s ability to conduct routine site walks and automate tasks like site laser scanning and progress monitoring. Scan data captured by Spot enables Turner teams to efficiently track construction progress, conduct rapid QA/QC checks, and update as-built BIM models to provide clients with true digital twins of their facilities at turnover.
Spot is among the world’s most advanced four-legged robots. Developed by Boston Dynamics (one of the most recognizable and innovative robotics companies in the world), Spot can traverse dynamic environments, avoid obstacles, climb stairs, and travel where wheeled robots cannot. The robot can be driven remotely or taught routes and actions to perform autonomous missions.
Spot augments Turner’s workforce by automating time consuming and tedious jobsite documentation tasks. Typically Turner staff would have to repeatably walk a jobsite to manually capture data on construction progress by photographing work-in-place or performing LiDAR / laser scans to capture as-built conditions on site. Spot can perform these jobsite documentation functions
autonomously, freeing Turner staff to focus on higher-value tasks.
