LG to Showcase Three New Robots at CES 2018 in Las Vegas

LG is to use CES 2018 in Las Vegas next week to unveil three concept robots specifically developed for commercial use at hotels, airports and supermarkets.

All part of LG’s new CLOi (pronounced KLOH-ee) robot brand, the Serving Robot, Porter Robot and Shopping Cart Robot follow in the footsteps of the Airport Guide Robot and the Airport Cleaning Robot that recently completed successful trial runs at Korea’s Incheon International Airport.

 The Lawn Mowing Robot and the affable Hub Robot, which recently participated in a trial at one of Korea’s largest financial institutions providing information and servicing customers at the bank’s branches, are also part of the CLOi family.

“As an important part of our future growth engine, LG is committed to expanding its portfolio of robots that can deliver real convenience and innovation in our customers’ lives,” said Ryu Hye-jung, head of the smart solution business division of LG’s Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company. “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.”

The purpose of the Serving Robot is to deliver meals and drinks to guests and customers at hotels and airport lounges quickly and  efficiently. The robot can deliver food or refreshments around the clock and with its built-in sliding tray, present the tray to the customer for easy removal. Once the delivery is confirmed, the Serving Robot makes its way back on its own.

Designed to deliver luggage to guests’ rooms, the Porter Robot can also handle express check-in and check-out services and take care of payment, allowing busy guests to check-out and have their luggage delivered to a waiting car.

 With the help of LG’s Shopping Cart Robot, customers can scan items using a barcode reader on the robot to view product prices and see their complete shopping list on the face display. The robot can also guide shoppers to the products they select on a smartphone app.

CES, formerly the International Consumer Electronics Show, will take place at World Trade Center Las Vegas place from 9 to 12 January 2018.
