      SEOUL, June 24, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is launching its latest LG CLOi ServeBot (model LDLIM31), an autonomous, door-type service robot designed to provide safe delivery services in hospitality and healthcare settings. Featuring a four-door design with ample interior storage space, the CLOi ServeBot can perform simple and repetitive delivery tasks to reduce the burden on busy staff.
      This introduction further strengthens LG’s portfolio of advanced AI robots and robot control solutions, aligning with the company’s plans to accelerate the expansion of its B2B business, particularly in the delivery and logistics services sector. The CLOi ServeBot was first released in South Korea, with upcoming launches scheduled in key markets across North America and Asia. For more details, please visit

The door-type CLOi ServeBot has gained international recognition for its innovative and convenient design, earning honors at the Red Dot Design Award 2024 and the iF Design Award 2024. Boasting four internal compartments, each capable of holding items weighing up to 30kg, this new model is able to make multiple deliveries or collections. Its generous and secure cargo space can comfortably accommodate as many as 32 standard-sized coffee cups,* while its shelving can be easily adjusted according to item- or load-size.
      Tailored for indoor hospitality and healthcare environments, the LG CLOi ServeBot is capable of utilizing elevators to move between floors.

For added user convenience, the CLOi ServeBot’s doors can be set to open or close automatically during operation. The LG CLOi ServeBot can even tell when a delivery has been completed, as camera sensors built into its internal compartments detect when items have been removed. And thanks to an AI algorithm, the new model can safely navigate around obstacles, determine the optimal route to its destination(s), and communicate with up to 20 other CLOi ServeBots to maximize task efficiency and avoid potential collisions.
      A front-facing 10.1-inch display on the CLOi ServeBot functions as a mobile advertising platform, with content easily uploaded via the LG CLOi Station (accessible through mobile or web) or the CMS mobile app. Furthermore, LG’s latest CLOi solution can escort customers to a given destination and provide voice guidance for visually impaired users. Additionally, users can monitor the robot’s status in real time using the LG CLOi Station, which also offers convenient paging and scheduling functions.
      “LG’s latest service robot employs advanced platform technologies covering AI, communications and control, to help streamline operations in hospitality and healthcare settings,” said Roh Kyu-chan, vice president and head of the robot business division of LG Business Solutions Company. “Leveraging our capabilities and expertise in robot solutions, we will continue to deliver innovative LG CLOi ServeBot models to meet the specific needs of diverse sectors.”
      With years of robotics industry experience, LG continues to provide versatile robot solutions for various environments, including airports, hotels, hospitals and warehouses. The company is now developing a comprehensive suite of solutions to efficiently manage the entire distribution process, from supplying robots to facilitating the last-mile delivery of ordered products.

      Hanok, traditional Korean houses, are renowned for their aesthetic beauty construction and harmonious integration with nature. Inspired by this distinctive architectural form – prized for its energy efficiency, natural ventilation and lighting – LG Spain has constructed an AI-powered home named ‘Another Hanok.’ This innovative abode showcases LG’s latest technological and design advancements and highlights some of the ecologically-focused projects undertaken as part of LG Spain’s ‘Smart Green’ movement.

      During the Another Hanok opening ceremony, LG reaffirmed its commitment to supporting the global climate response through its ongoing ESG initiatives and sustainable product solutions. The event was attended by 80 guests, including the president of LG Spain, local and Korean government officials and representatives from various partner companies. Since establishing the Smart Green movement in 2017, LG Spain has developed product solutions aimed at reducing environmental harm while encouraging and fostering community engagement.
      Efficient Innovations for Sustainable Dwellings
      Self-sufficient, connected and sustainably powered, Another Hanok embraces and embodies LG’s Smart Green philosophy. The house produces, stores, saves and shares clean energy, achieving 100 percent energy independence* through the use of LG’s state-of-the-art technologies as a way to reduce its environmental impact.

      Leading up to the entrance of Another Hanok is a beautifully designed pathway that inspires feelings of peace and tranquility while reminding visitors of the pressing environmental issues facing our planet. As visitors approach the house, they encounter a variety of interactive displays and installations that spotlight the challenges of reducing carbon emissions and the urgent need for companies and consumers to adopt responsible practices.

      Inside, visitors can explore several spaces, each focused on different aspects of sustainable living. From energy-efficient appliances to advanced HVAC systems, Another Hanok demonstrates how LG’s cutting-edge technologies and solutions can help create a net-zero-energy home. The seamless installation of the LG Therma V R290 Monobloc heat pump contributes to the house’s efficient use of power, while ensuring the reliable heating and cooling for visitor comfort. Conveniently, the solution’s energy consumption can be monitored through the ThinQ Energy Service. Additionally, surplus energy produced by the solar panels installed on the roof of Another Hanok is stored in LG’s energy storage system.

      Expanding the Smart Green Movement
      Launched in 2017, LG Spain’s Smart Green movement is an initiative that continues to help regenerate local environments and ecosystems. The movement’s goals include planting 48 million trees (Smart Green Trees), repopulating 48 million Iberian bees to ensure the pollination of countless endemic plant species (Smart Green Bees), and reviving the health of the Mediterranean Sea (Smart Green Seas).

      The ‘Another Life’ Experience
      Another Hanok is a part of LG’s ‘Another Life’ series, a collection of offline experience spaces that provide customers with unique opportunities to interact with LG’s lifestyle-enhancing products. Each of these spaces offers a welcoming atmosphere along with compelling displays and exhibits that promote sustainability and responsible technological innovation. Beginning in South Korea in 2022, the series has since expanded internationally with the addition of sites such as ‘Another Saigon’ in Vietnam.

      LG views Another Hanok as a new, more-engaging kind of B2B showroom, where its European B2B clients can see first-hand the company’s strong commitment to achieving carbon neutrality. In the spirit of its Life’s Good philosophy, LG will continue to innovate and inspire, leveraging its technology leadership to help usher in a new era of sustainability.
