KOREA’S INCHEON AIRPORT INTRODUCES ROBOT GUIDES

This summer, Incheon airport began featuring some “new faces” in the form of robots – to help passengers find their way.

The Airport Guide Robot, designed by LG Electronics, is an intelligent information assistant for travellers, answering questions in four languages: English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. It offers directions to destinations inside the airport, along with estimated distances and walking times, and can even escort lost or late travellers to their gates, or any other airport location.
