SuitBot: LG’s new wearable robot enhances leg movements

A robot is a discrete machine devised to reduce human efforts. But the LG Electronics has redefined this notion. LG in collaboration with South Korean firm SG Robotics has developed their first “human-centric” wearable robot, SuitBot.  Which enhances leg movements to help warehouse workers lift heavy objects.

Previous droids in the same range include a Cleaning Robot and Serving Robot. In this robot, AI-technology enables SuitBot to learn and evolve through analysis of biometric and environmental data. It would help it to learn about every individual’s physical condition and so the movements to help them better.

The CLOi SuitBot can communicate with other service robots built by LG to become part of a ‘smart working network’ to coordinate around the factory floor. It is designed to enhance leg movements of able-bodied and improve people’s quality of life who are with paralysis.

According to LG, “Tailoring the movements and level of support for individuals also empowers SuitBot to optimise its power consumption and conserve battery.”

They further added, naturally rotating joints allow the CLOi SuitBot move in a more relaxed and natural way. Which enhances the lower body while walking, standing or working.

The Seoul-based electronics firm claimed that SuitBot’s sandal-type shoes and automatic adjustment feature allow the wearer to get in and out of the suit with ease.

Song Dae-hyun, president of home appliances at LG 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.”
