Guardian XO, a bionic exoskeleton that will reach the construction world in 2020
The North American robot company Sarcos released a new full-body exoskeleton for civil construction workers to be commercialized in 2020. Specialized in military equipment and public security, the company has introduced this robot to allow workers up to 90.7 kg (200 pounds) for a long time.
Called Guardian XOThe project is being developed for almost two decades and aims to help reduce the workload of construction workers.
According to BIM +, the prototype Guardian XO this meant an investment of more than $ 175 million and the device could take eight hours with one power consumption. The weight of the suit and the transported cargo are moved through the exoskeleton structure to the ground.
The company has said that this process includes a "set of sensors integrated into the exoskeleton, allowing the operator to intuitively control the robot in a way that uses its instincts and reflexes and reduces the need for human training." Able to reinforce human strength in a ratio of 20 to 1, a 50 kg bag with cement weighs very little to use.
