When mentioning the topic of the leaders of robotics, LG does not come to mind first, but the South Korean brand in the near future can remedy this situation. The thing is that soon the company will be presented with a futuristic-looking exoskeleton CLOi SuitBot.
The device is aimed primarily at helping a person. It is emphasized that exosuit is not a substitute for a person, but only help him and increase his capabilities. CLOi SuitBot is able to give the user greater mobility and significantly reduce the load. This will allow you to perform more physical work, and this can be useful in production. The device will not be able to work without human participation, but nevertheless has artificial intelligence to study the user, the environment and based on this data to optimize traffic and energy efficiency. In addition, the AI is able to warn the user of the dangers of doing a particular job. The creators claim that the suit will be comfortable and as easy to use as possible.
It is unlikely that CLOi SuitBot will enter the mass market, so you will not be able to see people walking in exoskeletons around the city in the near future. The device is designed primarily for industrial and commercial customers. Present a novelty at the IFA 2018 in Berlin.
