SEOUL -- LG CNS, an information technology wing of South Korea's LG Group, released a robot management platform which connects and manages service robots at airports, shopping malls or logistics centers.

LG CNS said Thursday that its "OROT" robot management platform enables a service operator to check the status of robots and manage their schedules. "With our new management platform, we will broaden the use of service robots in the logistics and service sectors," the company said in a statement.

The platform will connect 14 service robots stationed in Incheon International Airport, South Korea's main gateway, to automatically guide tourists to departure gates with the least number of people. It can be connected to LG's artificial intelligence and big data platform for complicated tasks such as data analysis.

Technology companies are developing service robots equipped with artificial intelligence features, South Korea's retail giant Shinsegae is testing a fleet of autonomous driving shopping carts. According to Markets and Markets, an American market research company, the global service robot market would grow fast to reach $23.9 billion by 2022.
