Guardian® XT™

Guardian® XTTM

Teleoperated Dexterous Robot

Safely Extending Human Capabilities in Complex Industrial Environments

The Guardian XT highly dexterous mobile robot combines robotic strength and precision with human judgment and ingenuity via teleoperation for unparalleled productivity and safety in dangerous, complex, and unstructured industrial environments. Its versatile design enables mounting to various mobile and lift platforms and allows operators to control their trade tools remotely while working at height or ground level.

The Guardian XT robot is intuitive to operate. Users control the robot by utilizing their natural reflexes, instincts, and judgment to perform complex tasks in unstructured, often hazardous environments, all while keeping the operator out of harm's way.

Designed for Use in Challenging Industrial Work Environments

  • One- or two-armed upper body robot mounts on various mobile and lift platforms, making it ideal for a wide variety of industrial applications, including at-height, overhead, and ground-level configurations
  • An operator can safely teleoperate the system to perform dexterous tasks remotely, using custom and off-the-shelf trade tools
  • Indoor and outdoor use
  • Battery-operated for maximum portability and use in unstructured environments (can also accommodate installed power sources)

Robotic Capability Meets Human Skill and Intelligence for Maximum Dexterity

    • A combination of robotic arms, torso, and actuated end effectors enable a wide range of motion and dexterity (reach, grab, raise/lower, turn)


    • Each arm can lift and manipulate up to 100 lb (200 lb with 2 arms)


    • Dexterous control of the robotic arms, end effectors, and trade tools is achieved via the SenSuit™ wearable controller, which also provides the operator with situational awareness of the robot's interactions with its environment


Unparalleled Worker Safety and Productivity-Enhancing Possibilities

  • Maximizes productivity for tough overhead jobs involving handheld tools
  • Capable of reducing or eliminating the need for humans working in dangerous, at-height situations
  • Potential to reduce worker exposure to hazardous conditions
  • Helps combat fatigue-related downtime and occupational injuries
