The wearable LG CLOi SuitBot “human-centric” wearable robot supports the lower body to reduce stress when lifting and bending. Meanwhile, the company’s enhanced CLOi service robots – PorterBot, ServeBot, and CartBot – will demonstrate more advanced capabilities made possible by the company’s evolving AI and robotics technologies.

“The progress made by our entire robot lineup points to our commitment to deliver a robotic solution for the real world in the very near future,” says senior vice president Jin Seo Roh, head of LG’s robotics business. “With the ability to analyze and understand the surrounding environment, LG CLOi service robots are the culmination of significant investment in automation and artificial intelligence R&D.”

Originally unveiled last fall, the updated LG CLOi SuitBot supports the user’s waist and augments their own muscle power to reduce the risk of injury and fatigue when performing physically demanding tasks such as lifting and lowering heavy loads. SuitBot increases the user’s flexibility by enabling 50-degree extension and 90-degree flexion of the waist and activates when the wearer bends at a 65-degree angle.

The SuitBot disengages when the user is standing in an upright position. The wearable robot operates for four hours on a single charge and recharges in one hour.

First introduced at CES 2018, PorterBot, ServeBot, and CartBot are designed for environments such as airports, hotels, supermarkets and malls to assist customers, transport luggage, deliver meals, and carry groceries. The new LG CLOi service robots have been updated with a more advanced autonomous navigation system, as well as enhanced connectivity to allow for communication with mechanisms such as elevators and automatic doors.

The LG CLOi robots use AI technology to analyze customers’ usage patterns to constantly learn and improve performance. Equipped with touch displays and voice recognition to facilitate natural interaction with customers, LG CLOi can handle more complex tasks such as answering questions and processing payments.

The robots are designed to operate independently, navigating to a charging station when power runs low, returning to duty once fully recharged, and performing daily self-diagnosis and automatic reporting.
