LG’s CLOi robots are ready to serve in the restaurants and supermarkets
Following the introduction of its commercial robots in 2017, LG Electronics continues to push the envelope with the unveiling of three new work robots at CES 2018, which opens Jan 9 in Las Vegas. The new concepts, specifically developed for commercial use at hotels, airports and supermarkets, reflect LG’s commitment to expanding its position as the leader in development of products utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) through deep learning.
LG Welcomes Three New Robots to the CLOi Family
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.
Ryu Hye-jung, head of the smart solution business division for LG’s Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company said:
As an important part of our future growth engine, LG i committed to expanding its portfolio of robots that can deliver real convenience and innovation in our customers’ lives. We will continue to develop a wide range of products across commercial and home robots while seeking new opportunities to contribute to the advancement of the robotics industry.”
