Visitors to the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Olympics are looking forward to robot technology.

From navigator robots that pick up trash and give instructions to robots that serve drinks to nearby customers, Pyeongchang robots have a variety of functions.

Located at Incheon International Airport and located at all major Olympic venues, these robots will be the mainstay in driving the rendering of cutting-edge Olympics.

The person responsible for this operation is Professor Oh Jun Ho of KAIST, who was appointed to head the robot support team in Pyeongchang in July 2016. It was Oh who carefully selected the robots to participate in the Olympics. Their position.

Oh is a robot engineer and developed Korea’s first humanoid robot HUBO in 2004. On December 11th last year, I was honored to carry the Olympic torch before the mountable FX-2-Winter Olympics with two robots-DRC HUBO-2 created at Oh’s HUBO Lab.
