Another important task of the Spot robot is to explore tunnels dug by antiquities poachers. These tunnels are often very narrow and dangerous for the authorities to approach.
The four-legged Spot robot, developed by the American company Boston Dynamics, is equipped with cameras and sensors. According to Boston Dynamics, this type of robot can perform dangerous tasks in many different environmental conditions such as at nuclear plants, oil rigs, etc.
