SEOUL – South Korea’s main thoroughbred racing park has adopted a smart guide robot developed by LG Electronics to help visitors. Using a 27-inch display panel, the guidebot provides race results and other types of information including a map and driving directions.

An “LG CLOI Guidebot” was deployed at Seoul Race Park located on the southeastern outskirts of the capital on November 5. The guidebot welcomes and assists visitors. “LG’s differentiated robotics solution can meet a variety of customer demands. We will become the best business partner by providing enhanced robotics services,” Roh Kyu-chan, LG Robot Business Manager, said in a statement.

LG made a foray into the domestic service robot market in 2017 by deploying a robot guide at Incheon International Airport, South Korea’s main gateway, to help visitors navigate the gigantic installation. The company released autonomous service robots that roamed a Seoul hospital in 2020 to disinfect and detect people not wearing face masks.

South Korea’s food delivery services market, valued at 23 trillion won in 2020, has become LG’s new proving ground for delivery robots. The company has teamed up with GS25, a leading national convenience store franchise, to demonstrate a delivery robot capable of transporting groceries and drinks up and down a building using a elevator. Different types of serving robots have been deployed in restaurants to transport food from the kitchen to customers’ tables.
