LG Electronics (LG) has previewed advanced robot technologies to showcase LG innovations in artificial intelligence.

This was the major theme of CES® 2017 this week in Las Vegas.

By leveraging powerful analytical processing power, LG’s robotic line-up was able to navigate complex environments and decipher the most efficient and effective path to accomplish tasks, making people’s lives easier.

Innovating beyond LG technologies already found in the LG HOM-BOT automated vacuum cleaner, LG’s first non-cleaning robots are equipped with AI technologies enabling them to be employed in the home, in tandem with other smart appliances, outdoors, as well as in public spaces.

LG’s “Hub Robot” designed for home use will double as a smart home gateway and a personal assistant for consumers.

Another robot previewed at CES 2017 will demonstrate new capabilities for tending to one’s yard and garden.

LG’s robot line-up will also include models designed for commercial use in public spaces such as airports and hotels to help improve travellers’ experience.

The company’s new robot collection was unveiled at LG’s CES press conference on January 4 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas and on display at LG’s booth in the Las Vegas Convention Centre from January 5-8.
