With the help of Unicast Robotics, international visitors at Tokyo’s Haneda International airport are greeted and guided by a robotic helper. A perfect introduction to Japan’s hi-tech capital!
In December of 2016, Kanagawa prefectural government installed Pepper service robots to provide guidance for international arrivals at their tourism information center. In addition to providing guidance in multiple languages Pepper provides analysis of visitor analytics, enabling the developments of even better services for international arrivals in the future.
Unicast designed Haneda’s Pepper software to interact with foreign guests in multiple languages, providing guidance for trains and buses, as well as relevant points of interest throughout the Kanto area. While providing this guidance, Pepper gathers customer feedback through questions and surveys, providing data analysis of visitor needs. This data can be used in the future to not only refine Pepper’s visitor guidance, but also the development of new services and access options for new arrivals to the airport.
