LG Electronics to open robotics lab in Boston

Seoul, Jan 16 (IANS) LG Electronics Inc has said it will open a robotics lab in the United States to boost its competitiveness in bot technologies.

LG''s new robotics lab, set to open later this month in Boston, will allow its researchers to better check the latest robotics technologies.

To beef up its robotics research, LG will also collaborate with Kim Sang-bae, a renowned robot scientist and a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor who has been leading the MIT Biomimetics Robotics Lab since 2012, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday.

Using the MIT lab''s infrastructure, LG Electronics said it plans to research and enhance the robot''s manipulation abilities, such as picking up and moving objects.

"We expect to see great synergy since LG is good at emotion recognition and navigation technologies, while Kim is a renowned scientist in four-legged walking robots and object manipulation technologies," the company said in a release.

In recent years, LG Electronics has been focusing on bolstering its robotics business, acquiring bot manufacturing and developing firms.

LG Electronics CEO Brian Kwon said at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, last week that the company will pursue production of bots for consumer use.
