LG is working on 5G robots, partnering with Korean carrier SK Telecom for the project. LG is planning to commercialize the cloud-based autonomous robots, which'll be connected to SK Telecom's 5G network. Feature updates for the robots will be downloaded across this network.
They'll be used for detecting abnormalities and patrolling for security 24/7 in facilities and warehouses, the companies said. Quantum cryptography technology will secure the robot service.
SK Telecom also wants to use its home-made artificial intelligence Interference Accelerator and AI cloud for the project, which it said will "not only improve information-processing performance of robots but also support interconnection among multiple robots."
LG and SK Telecom are also looking to build a hyperspace platform they're calling "eSpace." Their robots will replicate the real world by collecting photos and spatial data to build eSpace, and the companies will then charge extra for virtual space services.
