19 COMMENT Trimble’s X7 scanner integrated with Boston Dynamics’ bio-inspired robot, the Spot of the Great Hall at the Denver International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the world. Trimble collaborated with Boston Dynamics to integrate Trimble’s X7 scanner to a bio-inspired robot to perform scans, and capture 360 images of the site. Considering the complex work environment at the airport, this project needed multiple scans to capture the building conditions, which if done conventionally could take several hours or even days and cause delay in construction. The Trimble X7 and the bioinspired robot were successfully deployed to avoid delays and help perform the task better. Thus, technology made it easier to perform tasks because it allows remote operation and frees onsite workers from repetitive work. This next generation of workers will reduce the number of people onsite and maintain the global standards of social distancing. Robots can be a great part of the future workforce, supporting on-site team at complex and hazardous working environments further improving productivity and safety of the workers in construction workflows.
