Autonomous robotics are here now and will be more prevalent in daily life, our workplaces, and in hostile environments. This is evident looking at the number of companies involved in the development and production of adaptable robotics.

Although these machines have built-in sensors on the arms and attachments, DIS inclination sensors and tilt switches offer an auxiliary and robust method of adding external sensing of overall orientation to the bodies of the robots. Shown below is a picture of one such autonomous robot, Spot, on public display at the recent MODEX 2020 exhibition in Atlanta, GA.

Industrial robots such as Spot can navigate rough terrain while sensing its environment. Adam Savage’s video goes in-depth about how Spot works:
