LG serves up helper robots for airports, hotels and shopping

The Serving Robot is one of LG's most practical robots, according to the company, delivering meals and drinks to guests and customers in hotels and airport lounges "quickly and efficiently".

The three robots joining the newly dubbed "CLOi Family" of robots include a serving robot for hotels, a porter robot for airports, and a shopping cart robot for supermarkets.

Sam Winnall then dragged one wide of the United post just before the half-hour mark as the visitors started to enjoy themselves. Scott Carson , Tom Huddlestone and Andreas Weimann also start, while Matej Vydra is on the substitute bench with David Nugent .

With the CLOi line (pronounced KLOH-ee), the three robots share a similar design with a squat, barrel body topped by a circular face-like interface display, and it is purely the programming that distinguishes one from another.

LG's airport guide robot, unveiled at CES previous year. The new robots are being developed with LG's new ThinQ AI in mind. Last year, the South Korean tech giant deployed information robots, as well as cleaning ones, at Incheon International Airport to test-run its robot know-how. It has a built-in sliding tray, so it can deliver food and refreshments around the clock. Once the delivery is confirmed, the Serving Robot makes its way back on its own. The Porter Robot can also handle express check-in and check-out service and take care of payment, allowing busy guests to check out and have their luggage delivered to a waiting auto in a fraction of the time. It will also help them locate items. The Shopping Cart Robot has many functions like an instant barcode reader when customers want to check the prices of certain products. It can further handle check-in and check-out service and even takes care of payment processes. It can guide shoppers to products that they select the related smartphone app. "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".

However, Jack Wilshere opened scoring in the second half, slotting the ball past Thibaut Courtois at the near post. After the draw against Chelsea, Wenger said: "When opinions always go the same way it's coincidence".

CLOi is the company's brand that aims at delivering 'both emotional interaction and innovative convenience to customers utilizing AI technology.' ThinQ, on the other hand, is LG's AI brand focusing on 'consumer electronics and home appliances'.
