LG begins robot trials in Korean airport”

LG Electronics has deployed cleaning and guide robots at South Korea's Incheon International Airport as part of a trial service.

In preparation for next year's Winter Olympics in South Korea, electronics giant LG is trialling new robots in the country's largest airport. Cleaning robots are capable of spotting areas of cleaning and prioritizing the work to be productive in keeping the expansive airport clean. While the robots are officially going into trial service today, they have been a familiar presence to frequent travelers since February, when they began beta testing at IIA. It speaks four languages - Korean, English, Chinese, and Japanese - and users can even get it to scan their boarding pass to be escorted to their correct departure gate.

Connected to the main server of the airport, it offers flight schedules, along with the locations of shops and facilities at the airport.

LG Airport Cleaning Robot

The Airport Cleaning Robot takes LG HOM-BOT's powerful cleaning performance, autonomous navigation, and object-avoidance capability and applies them to a commercial, public environment.

The company first clinched the deal with the airport in July 2016, and has been conducting various tests to produce optimized robots that can handle obstacles and other unexpected situations. The company is now conducting research in two areas, namely for household and commercial purposes. "It is this kind of effort and innovation that will drive LG forward in the Fourth Industrial Revolution".
