Today at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, LG kicked started their event by declaring that their applications are now being infused with a new artificial intelligence, robots, and Internet of Things technology. All of these technologies have come together to deliver better home appliances and digital products in the 2017 line-of-products.
In the Machine Learning section, LG introduced a bunch of home appliances connected to the web, with access to the cloud, and learn with the new DeepThinQ technology. The TWINWash washing machine, for example, is now able to increase the washing time to detect that the laundry is not clear. The air conditioner on the hand connects and maintains the temperature of the room according to the customized settings provided by the family. The smart air conditioner channels energy to almost every part of the room and focuses on energy efficient cooling.
The new vacuum cleaner robot is now able to dodge the house objects and even avoid movements by any owner. If a human is detected, the vacuum cleaner will kindly request them to move over.
The LG Mini Bot is a smart assistant that is aimed to compete against Google Home and other top voice assistants in the market. The Airport Guide Robot is a robot that helps clean airports as well as help travelers with directions and ticket details.
LG also unveiled the InstaView Door-to-Door Refrigerator, with the WebOS 3.5 operating system. The refrigerator has a 29-inch FullHD touch panel that interacts with the connected systems and even becomes transparent to reveal the contents inside without opening the doors.
The refrigerator comes with a built-in sensor that measures the level of food spoilage and warns about the next product expiration date. WebOS will also offer basic features like adding memos, birthday reminders, as well as music playback.
A built-in camera inside the refrigerator sends images of the inside of the refrigerator to the user's smartphone when the user is at a grocery store. The refrigerator is also integrated with Alexa, the Amazon's smart voice assistant. Users can order directly over the voice assistance.
