LG Going More Robo

After introducing commercial robots in 2017, LG Electronics (LG) launches three work robots at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. The trio was developed for commercial use at hotels, airports and supermarkets.

 

Under LG's new "CLOi" robot brand, the CLOi serving robot, CLOi porter robot and CLOi shopping cart robot follow in the footsteps of the CLOi airport guide robot and the CLOi airport cleaning robot. The airport robots are already deployed in a trial at South Korea's Incheon International Airport, and they will take on the thousands of visitors that travel through Seoul on their way to Pyeongchang. Also part of the expanding CLOi family are the CLOi lawn mowing robot and the affable CLOi hub robot, which recently participated in a trial at one of Korea's largest financial institutions by providing information and servicing customers at the bank's branches.

The three latest additions to the CLOi family include:

 

  • The CLOi serving robot will deliver food and beverage to guests of hotels and visitors to airport lounges quickly and efficiently. With a built-in sliding tray, consumers will experience intuitive interaction with the robot fleet. When the delivery is confirmed, the serving robot will make it way back to the kitchen independently.
  • The CLOi porter robot will help minimize inconvenience for travelers by reducing slow service and long wait times. This robot can also facilitate express check-in and check-out service by handling payment and delivering luggage to a waiting vehicle in a fraction of the time.
  • The CLOi shopping cart robot includes a barcode reader that customers can use to scan items and view product prices as they're placed within the robot's bin. The robot's "face" will also display all items on the shopping list and through a smartphone app will guide the consumer through the store via the most efficient route.  

LG's CLOi robots are being developed in parallel with LG ThinQ, the company's AI brand for consumer electronics and home appliances. Both CLOi and ThinQ are designed to take advantage of LG's DeepThinQ deep learning technology, delivering both emotional interaction and innovative convenience.
