LG Electronics, the prominent home electronics and appliances firm, is paving the way for a truly interconnected future by introducing electronically advanced products.

Bringing the long-imagined smart home even closer to reality, LG’s Deep Learning capabilities, the company’s user-centric and smart electronic devices will gather data using sensors, accumulate it on cloud networks through Wi-Fi and analyse it to better understand consumers.

Based on the collected data, the devices provide users with new solutions to everyday problems.

“Today’s consumers expect remote-control capabilities for their appliances, embracing technology that allows them to access status, troubleshooting, and maintenance data,” said Yong Geun Choi, President, LG Electronics Gulf.

“Connected gadgets offer advice on how to save energy, increase user convenience and improve appliance performance based on user history to future-proof not only their homes, but their lives,” Choi adds.

The increasing availability of Deep Learning allows smart homes to better serve users, increasing the appeal of full IoT integration, while saving money, ecologically.

The LG TWINWash washing machine and LG DUALCool Inverter Air conditioners are examples of this, as users can now wash two loads at the same time, as well as cool their homes in the most efficient manner utilising its Inverter technology.

Furthermore, LG’s SmartThinQ application is one of the company’s first step towards developing a network that thrives on artificial intelligence, as it can troubleshoot minor problems today.

The future promise is for the technology  to recognise when a certain component is about to fail and make all the necessary arrangements from ordering a replacement part to scheduling delivery and installation to ensure the user is never inconvenienced at any given

The company’s collection of robots includes the Lawnmower Robot, the Hub Robot and HOM-BOT®, in addition to the more specialised Airport Robot and Airport Cleaning Robot.

The Hub Robot unites a diverse range of smart appliances under a single ecosystem, optimising operations and enhancing convenience.

It utilises Amazon Alexa’s voice recognition technology to allow for easier access and even boasts compatibility with smaller robots that can be used to extend the reach of the smart home.

The HOM-BOT® combines robust cleaning performance with home security features and DeepThinQ™ technology, which allows the vacuum to adapt its routine as it cleans the house.

The Airport Robot is designed with travellers in mind, answering questions in a number of languages in order to streamline air travel.
