LG to Develop Robot Guides and Cleaners for South Korea Airport


LG Electronics will make automated guide robots and cleaning robots based on deep learning and other machine learning technology for use in South Korea’s Incheon International Airport.

The electronics giant signed an MOU with the airport with the goal to operate test models by the end of the year.

LG will utilise its intelligent robot and Internet of Things technology to make the specialised robots to both boost both management and the comfort of customers, it said.

The South Korean tech giant launched its first robot cleaner back in 2003 and has since continued to launch new versions.

The company said it will use technology it learned from the robots and smart home appliances such as deep learning, automated driving, and control to expand in the enterprise robot market.

“We will showcase world-class robot services based on our long experience and technology in home appliances,” said Cho Sung-jin, president of LG’s home appliance division.
