The Beijing Daxing International Airport has deployed 10 virtual robots and 10 physical robots inside its terminal halls, delivering excellent performance results during their trial operation, according to the airport.

To improve passenger experience, the robots will interact with passengers to provide help with flight information, services, airport facilities and other information on how best to pass through security.

With functions such as indoor positioning and autonomous navigation, the physical robots are able to avoid obstacles automatically. They can also interact with passengers and provide information, including important airport activities and news.

These service robots are the epitome of the newly built smart airport. Reports confirm that the airport has applied smart technologies to develop 68 systems on 19 platforms to improve its operational efficiency and quality of service.
