In September 2020, Clearpath Robotics released a ROS package for Boston Dynamics’ Spot quadruped. The idea was to allow robotics researchers to leverage ROS capabilities out-of-the-box, as well as open-source libraries, tools and the greater ROS community to accelerate their robotics development.
For robotics developers who want to install ROS on Spot, Clearpath has compiled user documentation that covers platform configuration, driver setup, and start-up. You can check out the full documentation here, but below are instructions for getting the ROS driver for Spot up and running. You can also refer to this Spot SDK Quickstart for even further detailed debugging steps.
