KO Client Trimble Inc., a California-based hardware, software, and services technology company, announced a strategic alliance to integrate a variety of Trimble construction data collection technologies with Boston Dynamics Spot® robot platform.
Trimble technologies integrated with the Spot robot’s autonomous mobility enable accurate, scalable, and rapid data acquisition while Trimble’s construction collaboration platforms provide a continuous flow of information between field and office.
“Robots will play a crucial role in automated construction workflows and can augment the human workforce by handling dirty, dull and dangerous tasks,” Martin Holmgren, general manager, Building Field Solutions at Trimble, said in a news release. “Our experience with early adopters like Mortenson gave us visibility into the transformative potential of an integrated solution that seamlessly marries a world-class robot with construction-specific sensors and workflows. We’re excited about this alliance and the potential to bring unprecedented improvements in safety, quality and productivity to our construction customers.”
KO partner Ben Oelsner represented Trimble in the negotiation of the strategic alliance agreement.
