LG CLOi SuitBot AI human-centric wearable robot announced

LG CLOi SuitBot

LG Electronics today has unveiled the company’s first “human-centric” wearable robot and unlike the previous robots from LG, the new LG CLOi SuitBot doesn’t navigate airport lounges and hotel hallways by itself. Instead, it will support and enhance a user’s legs to allow for more mfobility and lower limb strength.

The LG CLOi SuitBot was designed in collaboration with the startup, SG ROBOTICS. Thanks to the comfortable fit and naturally rotating joints, CLOi SuitBot is capable of moving in a more relaxed and natural way to enhance the lower body while walking, standing or working. Its sandal-type shoes and automatic adjustment feature allow the wearer to get in and out of the suit more easily.

The LG CLOi SuitBot can connect to other LG service robots so that it can become a part of a smart working network to deliver information and tools required at work sites such as manufacturing, logistics, and distribution. The AI technology lets LG CLOi SuitBot learn and evolve through the recognition and analysis of biometric and environment data, measuring and analyzing movements to suggest optimal movements and stances for maximum power efficiency. The new LG CLOi SuitBot robot will be displayed at IFA in Berlin from August 31 to September 5.

Song Dae-hyun, president of LG’s Home Appliance & Air Solution Company said:

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. It’s 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.
