Robots are gradually becoming present in many places around the world, be they commercial spaces, offices or even residences.
Last year we saw the launch of one of them by ASUS, the ZenBo , and a few days ago we saw that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also relies on a kind of robotic solution for home use based on artificial intelligence, Jarvis .
Today it was LG’s turn to present, during CES 2017, some of its solutions in this category of market.
The first of these, the Robot Hub, functions as a sort of home assistant, able to track the house, turn lights on or off from various rooms, open or close window blinds, and even play music.
Basically, it’s a mix of the ‘Amazon Echo’ and a ‘Roomba’, with a compact shape, and adjustable screen instead of your face.
They can control their smart home devices, play music, offer tips on traffic and travel routes and many other features to make your life a little easier, with the differential of displaying a friendly face ..
For those who need mobility, it will also be offered in miniature versions. Commercial release date and prices have not yet been disclosed.
The second is already an information services robot. Called the Airport Guide it will be implemented at the Incheon air terminal in South Korea later this year, offering information on flights, boarding gates and departure times for various travelers.
In other words, it’s like a “friendly” version of the airport’s traditional information kiosk. Like the other two robots, he also had no reported values.
