Okey ..! Let’s explore 6 best Robots at Airport
1. Pepper Robot at Munich Airport , Germany
Lufthansa and Munich Airport have started testing of a humanoid robot in Terminal 2 of the airport. The robot, given the name “Josie Pepper,” is there to provide information and answer questions for passengers in Terminal 2.
She is 120 centimeters tall, with sparkling, round eyes and a pleasant voice: Starting today, “Josie Pepper” the robot will be answering questions for passengers in Terminal 2. Whether they need directions to their gate or want to stop at a certain restaurant or shop – Josie Pepper will look them in the eyes and give them a prompt answer.
With the rollout of Josie Pepper, Munich Airport and Lufthansa are breaking new ground: It is the first-ever test of a humanoid robot equipped with artificial intelligence at a German airport. For the next few weeks, Josie Pepper will welcome travelers to the non-public area of Terminal 2, which is jointly operated by Munich Airport and Lufthansa. In her initial deployment, Josie Pepper, who speaks English, will await passengers at the top of the ramp leading to the shuttle connecting the main terminal to the satellite building. This test phase will be used to show whether Josie Pepper is accepted by passengers.
2. Spencer KLM Humanoid Robot , Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
After two years of construction, programming and testing, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will begin testing its robot “Spencer” at Schiphol on Monday, 30 November. Every day, travellers miss their connecting flights for all sorts of reasons, including delays, restricted transfer times, losing their way, and language barriers. KLM intends to use the robot to help transfer passengers find their way from one gate to another as quickly and efficiently as possible at the busy airport.
This project, supported by the European Commission, goes well beyond they capabilities of the current generation of robots. Ultimately, Spencer should be able to recognise groups, take group behaviour into account and recognise emotions. In addition, Spencer will also proactively respond to unexpected situations.
3,4. LG’s friendly robots at Seoul airport
There are two robots that are in service: an Airport Guide Robot and an Airport Cleaning Robot. The Airport Guide Robot is in place to interact with passengers. It can understand four languages — Korean, English, Chinese and Japanese — thanks to LG’s voice recognition software. It can tell you where a restaurant is located or escort late passengers straight to their gate with a quick boarding pass scan.
The Cleaning Robot is in place to make sure the airport stays tidy by monitoring the areas that need the most frequent cleaning — so in other words, you’ll probably see this little guy in the bathroom the next time you’re there.
5. Leo, SITA’s baggage robot, Geneva Airport
Leo, a fully autonomous, self-propelling baggage robot has the capacity to check in, print bag tags and transport up to two suitcases with a maximum weight of 32kg. It also has an obstacle avoidance capability and can navigate in a high-traffic environment such as an airport.
Leo recently took part in a trial at Geneva Airport where several passengers used the robot to check-in their bags.
Air New Zealand humanoid robot at Sydney Airport.
Chip the CANdroid robot was introduced to the busy airport on Aug 21,2017 , changing the way people travel.The white and black humanoid robot with two eyes, two arms and a touch screen computer screen chest, can interact with passengers and help Air New Zealand customers with their check ins at the gate before boarding.
Passengers are able to show their boarding passes to the robot’s eyes, which then scans all the information before the robot later waves goodbye to the passenger.
