Customer service robot set to star at MGS

14 November 2017

Qihan Technology Co Ltd will provide a truly fascinating glimpse into the future at MGS with a new customer service-oriented robot named Sanbot King Kong set to greet guests.

Weighing in at 100kg and measuring 145cm in height, Sanbot King Kong is the company’s second generation robot after Sanbot Elf, with King Kong featuring a larger size and dexterous arms. He also comes with functional shoulders, elbows and wrists and five individually motored fingers.

Elf and King Kong were designed for B2B applications in a range of jobs such as hotel receptionist, restaurant waiter, museum tour guide, retail assistant, security screener, hospital patient monitor or school teacher’s aid. In a casino setting, King Kong can be programmed to perform promotional tasks, casino navigation and to introduce games in multiple languages among other uses.

King Kong’s impressive physique and automatically-adjusting center of gravity allow him to carry 75kg of freight while the brackets on the front of his body can hook up to different size trays, storage boxes, printers, monitors  and more. King Kong also boasts 3D vision simultaneous localization and mapping (vSLAM) cameras to support indoor positioning and navigation, including autonomous route planning tasks. He sprints at up to 3.5 times the speed of a normal human walk and can run up to 18 hours on a single charge, returning to the charging station automatically when his battery runs low.

Be sure to swing by the Qihan booth to see what else King Kong and Elf can do.
