“Robots will help with repetitive chores on behalf of human employees while the employees can provide better service and value for customers,” said a senior official at LG Electronics.

Fostering robots as a future business, LG is expanding its robot portfolio, which currently includes guide robots, cleaning robots, wearable robots, serving robots and porter robots.
