Meet Guardian XO
The Guardian XO full-body exoskeleton is the world's first battery-powered industrial robot to combine human intelligence, instinct, and judgment with the power, endurance, and precision of machines.
Set to transform the way work gets done, the Guardian XO industrial exoskeleton augments operator strength without restricting freedom of movement to boost productivity while dramatically reducing injuries.
Expanding the Limits of Human Potential
Born of a fundamental need to safely enable humans to be more productive, the Guardian XO full-body industrial exoskeleton robot is the perfect synergy of human and machine. It is revolutionizing the way work gets done.
Uniquely suited for safer, more productive manufacturing/assembly, construction, field service, and warehouse/logistics use cases, the Guardian XO enables a single person to deliver the productivity of many, while significantly reducing the risk of occupational injury.
The Guardian XO exoskeleton makes light work of heavy-duty tasks, empowering the operator to safely lift and manipulate up to 200 pounds (90 kilograms) without fatigue or strain.
Designed for Added Strength and Endurance
Full-body, powered-design reduces operator metabolic output and physical strain by offloading 100% of the exoskeleton's weight during use
Addresses the 35 lb ~ 200 lb (15 kg to 90 kg) "lift gap" across a wide range of industrial processes
Robotic suit amplifies operator strength by a factor of up to 20x (with maximum payload of up to 200 lb) and can also enable smoother lifting motion by dynamically compensating for gravity and inertia (for up to 100 lb per arm or 50 lb per arm when lifting at full extension)
Battery-powered for Mobile Performance & Uninterrupted Use
Onboard power source offers near-continuous operation with hot-swappable batteries
Hot-swappable battery design extends operational uptime and flexibility
XO® Pod docking station facilitates battery charging as well as easy don/doff operation and configurations for transport/shipping
Supports modular and user-selectable end effectors
Advanced Control Systems for Enhanced Maneuverability & Mobility
"Get-out-of-the-way" control system uses robot-integrated sensors to eliminate latency, detecting operator movements within milliseconds
24 Degrees of Freedom (DOFs) allow the operator to move freely and naturally in unstructured environments where larger machinery is unable to access
Equipped with user-friendly Operator Control Interface (OCI) for user controls and diagnostic notification display
"Hands-free" mode allows operator to lock the suit's arms and simultaneously complete dexterous tasks requiring human hands, while carrying a heavy load
Ergonomic, Safety-first Features for Operator Comfort & Injury Prevention
In the event of sudden power loss, redundant hardware and software limit-stops enable "passive braking" to prevent operator injury
Highly responsive control system enables operator to fluidly execute fall-prevention motions such as stumble-recovery
Robotic suit can be donned and doffed unassisted in less than 30 seconds, with additional provisions for sudden egress
Can accommodate additional, customer-specialized protective gear; also equipped with lifting loop for docking and to enable attachment of fall-prevention device (FPD)
The Guardian XO exoskeleton is uniquely equipped to increase worker safety and efficiency across a wide variety of industries, including:
