Guardian XO Overview

Guardian® XO®

Full-Body Powered Exoskeleton

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)
