Japan Airlines : JAL conducts trial of humanoid robot guide at Haneda airport

02/09/2016 | 02:03am US/Eastern

Japan Airlines Co. started trial operation of a humanoid robot guide at Tokyo's Haneda airport on Tuesday to provide travelers with information about flight schedules and weather conditions at destinations.

The trial involving the approximately 60-centimeter tall white robot, called Nao, in the departure lounge of domestic Terminal 1 will last for a total of six days -- from Tuesday to Thursday and from Feb. 16 to 18.

The robot, which speaks Japanese, English and Chinese, will be deployed in the departure counter and security check areas to provide information to passengers, including about airport facilities and the deadline for security checks, according to the airline.

"The response was faster than I thought and it could also pick up what I spoke nicely," said university student Soma Yuki, 22, after the robot showed the weather in Osaka using a nearby screen.

Whether to employ the robot, made by a French company, in the future will depend upon its performance, JAL said.
