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.
Under LG's new "CLOi" robot brand, the CLOi serving robot, CLOi porter robot and CLOi shopping cart robot follow in the footsteps of the CLOi airport guide robot and the CLOi airport cleaning robot. The airport robots are already deployed in a trial at South Korea's Incheon International Airport, and they will take on the thousands of visitors that travel through Seoul on their way to Pyeongchang. Also part of the expanding CLOi family are the CLOi lawn mowing robot and the affable CLOi hub robot, which recently participated in a trial at one of Korea's largest financial institutions by providing information and servicing customers at the bank's branches.

"As an important part of our future growth engine, LG is committed to expanding its portfolio of robots that can deliver real convenience and innovation in our customers' lives," said Ryu Hye-jung, head of the smart solution business division for LG's Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company. "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."
