Boston Dynamics: More sensors on more industrials assets 

Mike Pollitt of global robotics engineering company Boston Dynamics on amplifying the progress of asset management innovation with more sensors:
Asset management has progressed greatly over the last 20 years, from preventative maintenance, to reliability-centered, and toward predictive maintenance. However, even as improved analytics turn data into actionable insights, the volume and types of capturable data have limited the benefits. The majority of assets in operation today simply lack the necessary sensors, so insufficient data continues to pose a challenge in asset-intensive industries.

The solution is to bring sensors to the assets. Equipped with data collection payloads, Boston Dynamics’ Spot quadruped robot can inspect assets almost anywhere (including areas hazardous or inaccessible to people), enabling continuous analysis of asset performance for improved reliability and operational efficiency.
