BIG NEWS from Autodesk University: SpotWalk, the first of its kind robotic 360° construction progress documentation solution for Boston Dynamics' Spot robot, is here! Co-developed in a great product partnership, the integration with Spot enables the robot, equipped with a 360° camera, to walk your job site, autonomously capturing 360° images more consistently than ever before and always at the same locations.
The integration has been piloted at the SFO Harvey Milk Terminal 1 Project in San Francisco together with our partner Hensel Phelps.

Say “hello” to automated progress capture, powered by Augmented Reality: Today we are excited to release SpeedMode. The new feature within the JobWalk App identifies your exact location on the floor plan and automatically takes 360° images when you pass at a capture point. Just walk from one capture location to another and without any input on your mobile device, 360° images will be taken automatically, at the exact same locations.
With SpeedMode we reinvent the workflow of progress documentation. Many factors can make your job walk take longer than expected, but after countless field tests, we finally found a whole new, super-fast and organized workflow of capturing: automated progress capturing with SpeedMode!
SpeedMode is available for all users by simply updating the JobWalk App via the Google Play Store or Apple App Store to the latest version. Get started with SpeedMode today and upgrade your progress capture workflow. Learn more about the new feature on our website!
