Munich Airport trials AI-enabled robot in Terminal 2

 Munich Airport is testing a humanoid robot equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) in its Terminal 2.

The robot, named Josie Pepper, welcomed passengers in the non-public area of the terminal. For her first deployment, the robot speaks English and waits near the departure for the shuttle to the satellite building. Here, it welcomes passengers and answers their questions about shops, restaurants and air traffic.

The 1.2m-tall robot was developed by the French company SoftBank Robotics and it powered by artificial intelligence and Watson Internet of Things technology from the IBM cloud. When the robot speaks, it lights up green around its eyes. Its hands and fingers are human-like, and it moves on rollers.
