LG has developed a compact bipedal robot that can move freely around the house and perform various tasks. For example, caring for pets.

The new AI-powered robot is expected to debut at CES 2024 in Las Vegas in early January.. The robot will have a wide range of capabilities: from informing about the air conditioner not being turned off to monitoring your pets and reminding you to take medications..

Our revolutionary agent… combines advanced autonomous mobility and artificial intelligence technologies with advanced communications capabilities and services to help customers free themselves from household chores,” said Lu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company, about the new development.

Thanks to AI and the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 platform, this smart home assistant will be able to voice a variety of information ( for example, weather forecast) and maintain a conversation.

The robot's face is equipped with a camera, speaker and various sensors. All this will allow him to move freely. In addition, the camera allows the robot to recognize faces and even emotions of the person it sees.. Thanks to this feature, the robot can do various things to improve its mood, such as selecting music.

The bipedal gadget also has a more practical application: the robot can detect any unusual activity at home and send alerts to the owner on a smartphone.. The cost of the model is still unknown. LG is expected to announce it later.

On the eve of NV Techno reported that Agility Robotics has improved its humanoid robot for Digit warehouses. Now he understands people's requests, even if they are formulated in a complicated way.
