Robots to greet, guide visitors at Olympics, Tokyo 2020

Haneda Airport is the primary gateway of Japan, connecting Tokyo with many cities worldwide.

It is the closest airport to the capital; many native and international travellers select this handy airport.

The variety of visitors to Japan is growing 12 months by 12 months and it’s anticipated to hit document ranges when Tokyo hosts the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic video games.

Airport operators are making efforts to deal with the state of affairs with the assistance of surprising staff!

They are the robots that will probably be greeting, guiding and serving to travellers.

“We are using a total of four robots in Haneda Airport and the main concept is security but we can divide the four robots into two groups, the first group is digital signage guiding robots and the second group is autonomous security robots that can operate and move by themselves,” mentioned Kazunori Maebashi of Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

Autonomous safety and guide robotic will be seen within the Airport foyer, this robotic is ready to cease robotically, to forestall collision and accident when it encounters folks or object.

During the day, it guides visitors via the airport utilizing a contact panel positioned at the entrance. In the night, it takes on the duties of a safety guard.

It has additionally statement abilities and intruder-detection know-how.

When it detects suspicious objects or left behind luggage even below seats it robotically notifies guards.

“These robots are also crucial tools in solving the labour shortage due to population decline. It is hoped that using robots would reduce the burden of airport employees and create a better working environment,” mentioned Maebashi.

The ultimate purpose is to enhance the general high quality of service by discovering a job that robots can do to make people extra environment-friendly and clients extra happy.

And with the presence of robots world travellers will see that Haneda Airport is transferred into an airport of the long run.
