LG robotic waiter serves food in Seoul restaurant

An LG robotic waiter has made its debut at a local restaurant in Seoul.

The LG CLOi ServeBot comes with indoor autonomous driving technology and an obstacle avoidance system so it doesn’t crash into furniture, customers or colleagues.

The robot is capable of delivering food to the table where customers are seated as well as returning the dishes after the customers finish their meal.

The robot has been put to work at CJ Foodville’s Cheiljemyunso restaurant in Seoul Station.

The LG robotic waiter – called CLOi ServeBot – avoids obstacles with a voice message saying, “I’m sorry, may I please go through?”

It also plays a song while moving to help prevent collisions with customers by making them aware of its presence.
