New 'CLOi' Robots to Play Key Role in Advancing LG's AI Excellence
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire
Following the introduction of its commercial robots in 2017, LG Electronics (LG) 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.
Three New CLOi Robots
- 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.
