LG Electronics Thursday will add kitchen helper in its line of robotics under a development order from food chain operator CJ Foodville.
Pilot robots will be deployed to CJ Foodville`s selected restaurants later this year to study what should be improved further.
LG Electronics said human staff will be able to better tend to the needs of customers if dish-washing and other routine and simple kitchen tasks are left to robots.
LG Electronics has been active on robotics, developing different types of self-learning machines that can navigate, clean up, and conduct chores at homes, offices and plants under the brand of CLOi, as well as wearable robots that support human body movements.

LG Electronics grabbed attention for the release of a series of AI-based robots that can better interact with customers during the South by Southwest held in Texas last March. The robots exhibited there included LG CLOi CareBot for human care, LG CLOi CamBot for security, LG CLOi MateBot for presentation, LG CLOi SocialBot for house chores and LG CLOi GestureBot specified to non-verbal language.
