The exoskeleton is designed to operate near-continuously with hot-swappable batteries.
Three hot-swappable lithium-ion batteries power the exoskeleton. This allows for near-continuous operation.
The exoskeleton is designed so that the human operator bears none of the suit or payload weight. However, for better payload context and operational safety, a percentage of that weight can be optionally felt by the operator to offer a safer, more optimal operator experience.
In order to navigate work areas, the exoskeleton is designed and tested to execute a single step-up or step-down on a 10” (25 cm) tall step.
An operator in the exoskeleton can walk at about 3 mph (4.8 kph), an average walking pace for a human.
Yes. The Guardian XO exoskeleton has 24 degrees of freedom or rotational joints. The degrees of freedom in the shoulders allow the robot’s arms to be raised and lowered – front to back, as well as laterally – similar to the range of motion of human shoulders.
The exoskeleton can lift and manipulate up to 200 lb (90 kg) repeatedly without exertion, strain, or injury.
