【智能引导机器人——机场指路小助手】荷兰皇家航空公司(Royal Dutch Airlines)近日推出了一款小型蓝色机器人,希望帮助旅客穿过繁忙的机场,快速到达登机口。Care-E机器人将放置在机场安检处,带领旅客前往任何需要随身携带行李箱的地方。只要按照说明让机器人扫描登机牌,机器人就能开启前往对应登机口的导航服务。荷航将首先在纽约肯尼迪国际机场和旧金山国际机场推出该设备。

This adorable robot wants to make air travel less stressful

The KLM Royal Dutch Airlines robot will be launching in select airports this summer

Finding your way through an airport can be an infuriating task. With cancellations, delays, and gate switches, you could find yourself running in circles forever before you board. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines wants to help make that jaunt from security to your gate a little less hectic with a little blue robot.

The robot, Care-E, will meet you at the security checkpoint and take you wherever you need to go with your carry-on luggage on its back. To start your trip with the robot, it will prompt you to scan your boarding pass through nonverbal sounds and cues on its screen. KLM will launch the device at New York’s JFK and San Francisco’s International airports before the company decides if it will provide the service elsewhere.

Care-E moves at around 3 mph, so if you’re running late and need to dash through the terminal to catch your flight, you may want to leave it at the security checkpoint. But if you’re early, you can use it for free with a two-day demo trial. KLM expects the robot guide to launch in either July or August, but you may be checking for delays on your phone for a little while longer, as the device isn’t fully functional yet.

Smaller companies have tried to develop a smart airport device like Care-E but have repeatedly failed and fallen out of business due to airport policy changes on batteries and working out those kinks with relatively small teams. Despite past failures when it comes to smart luggage, Care-E has a whole airport ready to support the device so it has a leg up on its past competition.
