In the recently held CES 2017, LG impressed the world with the unveiling of its new line of robots. One of which is Airbot, an airport guide designed to offer aid to traveling passengers.

LG swung big at the CES 2017. It unveiled a number of robots, all of which were built for a specific purpose. There’s the really cute Hub Robot and a mini-size version of it that’s designed to make your life at home a lot easier. There was also the lawn mowing robot that’s designed to be your personal auto gardener.

However, the Airbot looks to be the bigger sibling in the new LG robotic lineup. After all, the Airbot isn’t only big in stature; it also carries big responsibility on its shoulders. The Airbot exists to help passengers in South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, whether it’s guiding them to their boarding gate or offering weather information pulled from a traveler’s destination. As a result, it won’t just be a welcome help to travelers but an invaluable addition to any travel hub looking to assist its staff so airport workers can focus on more important tasks.
