LG, the South Korean consumer electronics giant, will offset a fleet of robot helpers into the award-winning Incheon International Airport. These machine aides will aim to help the influx of passengers for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Seoul.

Two kinds of robots will be utilized. The first will be an Airport Guide Robot that will help visitors navigate the establishment and lead passengers to their gate with just a barcode scan. It will also bring tourists to restaurants or shops within the airport. Powered by LG’s own speech recognition platform, the robot will understand and speak Korean, English, Chinese, and Japanese.

The second robot will be a cleaning workhorse. Using the same technology found in LG’s home vacuum machines, the robot will clean and collect cleanliness data around the airport. With wheeled friends about to join the staff, it’s making it hard for other major terminals to compete with Incheon’s title as the “Best Airport in the World”.
