LG Electronics showcased three new robots at CES 2018. The robots were designed for LG’s new CLOi brand, and each comes with distinct programming for different industries. 

The Serving Robot model is designed for airport and hotel restaurants. It comes with a touchscreen that customers use to order their food, and it delivers the meal to them on a tray. The Porter Robot comes with a carrying case for hotel guests to use to carry luggage to their rooms. Lastly, the Shopping Cart Robot is made for supermarkets. It follows customers around and assists them with shopping. A customer can view the store’s inventory list from the robot’s touchscreen display and connect through a smartphone app to instruct it to locate specific items in the store.

Unfortunately, when LG showed them off to visitors at CES, the robots were not as compliant as intended.
