Robot to assist fliers at Kempegowda International Airport

The Kempegowda International Airport could soon be the first airport in India to offer robotic assistance to passengers.

A humanoid robot, Kempa, created by a local start-up is likely to be installed at KIA, if Minister of State of Innovation and Technology Priyank Kharge gives his approval.

The robot will offer help with check-in or navigating the airport, tips on what to see and do in Karnataka.

The robot - currently being tested - promises to chat with passengers in English and Kannada.

It may even be able to walk around with them without bumping into people and things.
