Based in Toronto and Montreal, Guidebolt is a pioneer startup in the development of robotic avatar systems. Avatars are physical humanoid robots controlled remotely by a human operator with compact on-body interface from the comfort and safety of their home or office. Avatars enable humans to teletransport their senses and physical abilities in real-time to any remote location.
For example, Avatars could help medical service providers care for patients physically without any risk of infectious exposure and without the inconvenience of time-consuming procedures for cycling personal protective equipment.Avatars could reduce commutes and improve employee safety for retail, manufacturing, farming, distribution, and long-distance infrastructure activities. Avatars could help provide critical care and deploy immediate emergency response in natural or accidental disaster scenarios. In learning environments, one expert teacher could bring knowledge interactively to thousands of eager learners at several remote locations. In personal relationships, Avatars will bring people closer together, regardless of their age, location, or mobility.
We are currently looking for an eager, energetic volunteer who will contribute to helping us in our mission of becoming pioneers in this new technology disrupting healthcare, industry, education, tourism, and more, as a qualified team for the ANA Avatar XPRIZE. The ANA Avatar XPRIZE is a multimillion-dollar competition which asks teams to build dynamic and robust robot systems which can solve a variety of difficult tasks. You will get the chance to work with different stakeholders in the city of Toronto and learn about this technology of the future.
