Guardian XM Robot

Guardian® XM

Intelligent Manipulator Robot

Mobile Manipulation

The Sarcos Guardian XM robot is an intelligent manipulator offering speed, dexterity, precision, and strength in a compact, lightweight package.


  • Six degrees of freedom
  • Optimized strength-to-weight ratio
  • Embedded intelligence
  • Sleek hardware design that can withstand extreme temperatures and environmental conditions (IP66)



Semi-Autonomous & Supervised Autonomy Functionality

The Guardian XM robot is compatible with proprietary Sarcos software and autonomy algorithms, enabling semi-autonomous and supervised autonomous mobile manipulation in structured and unstructured environments.

When human-in-the-loop control is required, the robot can be integrated with Sarcos controllers.

Exceptional Capabilities

  • Enhanced for mobile manipulation:
    • Optimized strength-to-weight ratio
    • Powered with low-voltage DC
    • Embedded computing and intelligence require no external control box, minimizing footprint
  • Low profile and hardened mechanical design is resilient to shock and vibration, indoors and outdoors
  • Available with torque sensing and control at each joint
  • Integrated power and communications for fast communication and easy integration with 3rd party tools and sensors (EtherCAT and Ethernet pass-through available)
  • Rugged outer shell is tolerant to harsh environmental conditions, such as precipitation, condensation, and salt spray
  • Six degrees of freedom, including continuous wrist and elbow roll joints, allowing end effectors to deliver precision placement
  • Capable of performing semi-autonomous manipulation using Sarcos software
