Unveiling Phoenix: The Future of Labor
“Phoenix is designed to be the most physically capable humanoid with many sensors. Our goal is to allow Carbon’s rapidly growing intelligence to perform a wide array of work tasks,” stated Geordie Rose, CEO and co-founder of Sanctuary AI. Sanctuary foresees a future where their general-purpose robots become as commonplace as cars, filling labor gaps and aiding with various tasks.
Phoenix: Humanoid Features and Capabilities
Phoenix stands at 5’ 7”, weighs 155 lbs with a maximum payload of 55 lbs, and can reach speeds up to 3 mph. Its industry-leading robotic hands have an impressive 20 degrees of freedom, rivaling human hand dexterity. With advanced haptic technology mimicking touch, Phoenix sports a bolder aesthetic with vibrant colors and enhanced textures.
Sanctuary AI: Leading the General-Purpose Robotic Revolution
Sanctuary AI stands out for its emphasis on creating a robot capable of human-like physical tasks. “The real star of the show is our proprietary AI control system, the Carbon-based mind, which powers the robot,” explained Rose. Sanctuary is determined to introduce a novel ecosystem in AI and robotics powered by a strong alliance of top vendors and partners.
Fueling the Mission: Funding and Collaborations
Sanctuary AI received a notable C$30 million from the Government of Canada’s Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF), elevating its total funding to over C$100 million. The company is currently working on its next funding round to further propel its ambitious mission.
