The new exoskeleton will help a person to lift a weight of 90 kilograms

That is able to move at a speed of 5.5 kilometers per hour and can lift a weight of 90 pounds all day without recharging? Potentially even you and I, if we wear our special exoskeletons. That's why the us military has ordered a full-sized exoskeletons Guardian XO (Yes, just like brandy) from the manufacturer Sarcos: no wonder, because with their help, a weight of 90 pounds will be felt by the person as 4.5 kilograms!

No, it's not called a suit of "iron man". Despite the fact that exoskeletons for the last decade, they are still heavy, bulky, clumsy and have a low battery life. However, all that allows to lift 90 pounds again and again for hours without exhaustion or injury, is a potential boon for the military, which must manually transfer the missiles to heavy fuel drag hoses or lift the broken engine parts from vehicles.

Therefore, the us military want to use Guardian XO for maintenance and repair of aircraft, including loading and unloading operations. The exoskeleton supports the body of the operator with a gain of 1 to 20, allows you to walk at a speed of up to 5.6 kilometers per hour, but most importantly — has the function of replacing the battery, which is enough for 8 hours of work.

If the exoskeleton Sarcos successfully pass the test, he still will not be the first sample, which is suitable for military equipment. So far, the maximum he can be trusted with carrying heavy loads. However, the model is already interested in , Caterpillar and some construction companies.

The Device will collect various biometric data about the user like pressure, pulse, body temperature and so on in order to protect the user from overvoltage. In addition, the embedded computer will also analyze the nature of the activities in order to effectively support and assist in the execution of works.

What do you think, how soon will the exoskeletons will be used at each plant? Write your feedback .
