ROS driver now available for Boston Dynamics' Spot

Hello Everyone!

First time posting on ROS Discourse. In case you missed it, I just wanted to let everyone know that Clearpath Robotics announced a ROS Driver for Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot. We’ve also partnered with Boston Dynamics to offer ROS-enabled Spot robots to the robotics research and development community.

You can learn more about the package here, or download the driver here.

We also made a short video about it:

Feel free to let us know if you have any questions!

Thanks,
Chris

I’ve set it up, went through the code, it seems you actually need a real physical robot and bosdyn.api developer key to use the ROS package :smiley:
