SARCOS Guardian-S Magnetic Robotic Crawler System

Pine Item #56045

Premier surveillance and inspection tool, the GuardianS magnetic robotic crawler is uniquely capable, cost-effective, and man-portable, weighing approximately 17 lbs. The robot can reliably traverse challenging terrain and facilitate two-way, real-time video, voice, and data communication, all from a safe distance. In the context of inspecting operational facilities and equipment, robotic technology can be looked at as an element of digitally transforming the asset management process. While there is a lot of technology that is involved in such a transformation, robotics in the inspection process can provide a direct digital link to the physical asset. Various studies at IDC have found that transforming the asset management process can yield significant improvements in key areas such as 20% improvements in asset uptime, 15%-20% reductions in maintenance labor costs, and 8%-10% improvements in mechanical efficiencies. Again, while the use of robotics is only one part of a transformation effort, the technology has a role and will yield tangible value for the operation.


Lightweight & Man-Portable: Easily hand-carried and able to carry a 10lb payload on horizontal surfaces

Expansive Navigation: Low-profile vertical surfaces all-terrain: mud gravel water unstructured terrain and confined spaces as narrow as 7 inches

Real-Time Communication: Transmits two-way video audio and sensor data while the operator stays at a safer standoff distance

Cloud Connected: Command Center provides robot control data gathering analytics and secure communications

Simple Remote Controls: Allows operators to get up to speed quickly and enables safer surveillance and payload deployments

Immediate Situational Awareness: Performs ongoing observation and investigation of dangerous environments to keep its operator out of harm's way
