LG, the Korean tech giant is all set to unveil there first “human-centric” wearable robot in the upcoming IFA electronics show. The show will start from August 31 to September 5 in Berlin. LG called it’s wearable robots CLOi SuitBot. CLOi refers to clever, clear and close operating intelligence that makes our life smarter.
LG said CLOi SuitBot is an exoskeleton robot that supports and build to enhances the human body. By wearing it, users can strengthen their legs and lower body to lift and move heavy objects more easily. CLOiSuitBot provides support to the wearer’s legs and enhances the wearer’s legs for better mobility and lower limb strength.
“LG CLOi SuitBot is evidence of our full commitment to expanding our portfolio of service robots that deliver tangible convenience and innovation in our lives,” said Song Dae-Hyun, president of the home appliance and air solution unit at LG, said.
In order to operate this robot, firstly you have to wear it like paint. At top of it there belt with two supporting joints with clamps on the thighs and the calves. The CLOi SuitBot consists of a pair of robotic legs that a wearer can step into.
Its naturally rotating robotic joints enable the wearer to move in a relaxed and natural way while walking, standing or working.CLOi SuitBot has sandal-style shoes designed which automatically adjust to individual users.
Shoes are designed in such a way that they can easily slide in your feet. LG says that its CLOi SuitBot is “a comfortable fit” with ease in putting it on and off than other exoskeletons and can be used in everyday life to assist those with physical limitations.
LG’s CLOi SuitBot is powered by Artificial Intelligence technology. By using AI it learns and gets better by analyzing and measuring user’s movements. It helps the robot to study and analyze biometric and environment data. It also manages the power efficiency of the robot.
“It is just one example of a wide range of revolutionary AI products designed to interact with users to dramatically elevate user convenience and create new opportunities to advance our robotics initiative into a next-gen growth engine,” Song Dae-Hyun, President of LG’s Home Appliance and Air Solution Company, said in a statement.
To build this futuristic machine LG collaborated with SG Robotics. SG Robotics is a local startup specializing in wearable robotics. LG and SG Robotics both are very interested in developing robots that can help humans overcome the limitations of their bodies in everyday life. Recently LG has bought some shares in SG Robotics.
LG is truly passionate about the robot. CLOi SuitBot is not their first robot but actually the eighth one, the seven others are airport guide, airport cleaning, serving, porter, shopping cart, cleaning and lawn mowing robots.
LG’s CLOi SuitBot has a feature that allows it to communicate with other LG’s service robots. The price of CLOiSuitBot is not released yet, but it will not be the kind of thing you’ll buy for Christmas.
