HYUNDAI ELEVATOR SIGNS DELIVERY ROBOT MOU WITH BAEMIN
Earlier this year, Hyundai Elevator signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Baemin, South Korea's top delivery app, agreeing to advance elevator-delivery robot connectivity. Observing the delivery-robot market is projected to grow due to increased demand for touchless technology in the COVID-19 era, Hyundai and Baemin plan to launch pilot programs at two locations: a hotel and a business. Elevators are the main way to traverse hospitals, hotels, office buildings and multitenant residential towers, and the Hyundai Elevator/Baemin partnership seeks to capitalize on this. "Previously, autonomous robot services mainly operated on flat surface areas, but connected elevator technology allows services to be provided in all areas of a building," Hyundai Elevator CEO Song Seung-bong said. "Hyundai Elevator will proceed with development of robot-exclusive elevators and private maintenance plans."
