The PyeongChang Winter Olympics is set to be the world's first Robot Olympics.

According to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Robot Support Team (General Manager KAIST Professor Junho Oh), during the Winter Games, a wide range of robots will be installed in the venues including Alpensia Olympic Park, Main Press Center, Pyeongchang Athletes Village, and Alpensia Ski Jumping Center to provide helping services.

During the Olympic Games, each facility will contain a“Soohorang,” an autonomous driving cleaning robot, an information service robot, and a drink serving robot.

▲Robot 'Soohorang'
A robot that transforms into “Soohorang” will guide the athletes and visitors by speaking and gesturing with its hands. Soohorang is able to dance to music, and as the athlete or visitor approaches, it moves and takes a commemorative photo for the human.

▲ cleaning robot
An autonomously driving cleaning robot will also be included. As it moves autonomously, it provides cleaning services while also providing information or guide services when it meets a pedestrian. It travels at a speed of 40cm per second, and cleans 900 square meters of space per hour.

▲ Beverage service robots
Beverage service robots will also be placed in areas throughout the venue. With a maximum load of 5 kg, the robots can move in a complex indoor evironment at a speed of 50 cm per second to provide drinks. Other robots will be providing Olympic information.

▲ Infobot
These robots drive autonomously to provide information on the Olympic games through high quality video and sound. They will be installed at the Olympic Media Village Restaurant and Lounge. The Information service robots will offer information about the Olympic games schedule, stadium, tourist attractions, and events recommendations in four languages including Korean, English, Chinese and Japanese. With 38 joints, the robot can make a variety of movements.

These robots are expected to be installed at the PyeongChang Olympic Plaza, International Broadcasting Center, Alpensia Olympic Park, Jeongseon Alpine Center, Gangneung Athletes Village, PyeongChang Athletes Village, Main Press Center, Yongpyong Alpine Center, and Olympic Sliding Center.

▲ Hubo
With the addition of these diverse robots, the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games will remembered as the first Robot Olympics. Korea’s robot technology was already in the spotlight during the Olympic torch relay when the humanoid robot HUBO, winner of the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC), was a torchbearer in the relay that took place in Daejeon at KAIST on November 11. FX-2, the boarding robot developed by KAIST Professor Junho Oh, also participated in the torch relay. Prior to this event, an underwater walking robot “Crabster,” developed using only domestic technology, was a torchbearer along with the Jeju haenyeo at Seogwipo, Jeju. The Crabster (CR200), a shallow water-use robot (up to 200m) is the result of a joint effort by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries and Korea Research Institute of Ships & Ocean Engineering to develop technology for a “Muli-jointed General Walking Submarine Robot.”

▲WalkON Suit
After the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, a disabled person with lower limb paralysis will be fitted with an exoskeleton robot to carry the torch at the Paralympic Games. The runner at the Paralympics will be wearing the custom made wearable robot for walking assistance, “WalkON Suit” developed by SG Robotics. This product took third place (bronze) at CYBATHLON, a competition for people with disablilites. In the Exoskeleton category, a Korean athlete wore this suit to win the bronze.

▲ INFOBOT
Also during the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, a ski robot competition will be held at Welli Hilli Park in Doonnae, PyeongChang–gun, Gangwon Province. Ski robots developed by eight teams including Mini Robot Inc., Hanyang University, Myongji University, Kookmin University, Kyungpook National University, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Seoul National University of Science and Technology, and the Korea Institute of Robot and Convergence will be showing off their skills. The robots will be attempting the Giant Slalom and performing ski missions.
