Giliran Robot YAPE yang Uji Kemampuan di Bandara Frankfurt

first_img“Sebagai pemimpin dalam inovasi, kami terus berupaya untuk mendorong maju teknologi digital baru yang bertujuan untuk meningkatkan pengalaman perjalanan bagi penumpang kami,” kata Alexander Laukenmann, yang mengepalai unit Manajemen Terminal dan Airside di Fraport AG, Perusahaan transportasi Jerman yang mengoperasikan Bandara Frankfurt.“Tujuan kami mengoperasikan YAPE adalah untuk menguji aspek kecerdasan buatan (ariticifial intelligent) dan sistem robotik yang dapat membantu meningkatkan kualitas layanan di Bandara Frankfurt,” sambungnya.Dalam fase uji coba ini, penumpang dapat berbicara dengan YAPE melalui aplikasi yang ada di smartphone. Seperti yang sudah disebutkan di atas, YAPE juga dapat membantu membawa barang bawaan penumpang dengan cara dimasukkan ke dalam kompartemen kecil yang ada di tubuh mereka. Setelah selesai dengan urusan barang, maka YAPE siap untuk mendampingi Anda menuju gerbang keberangkatan. Adapun robot ini dapat bergerak bebas di seluruh terminal berkat disematkannya sistem navigasi yang terintegrasi.Di masa yang akan datang, pihak pengembang akan mengembangkan interaksi mandiri antara robot dengan penumpang – jadi tidak perlu lagi menggunakan smartphone. YAPE, yang merupakan singkatan dari ‘Your Autonomous Pony Express’ ini merupakan sistem robotika kembangan Yape Srl, dimana pihak pengembang mengungkapkan bahwa robot ini bisa mengangkut beban hingga 30kg dengan kecepatan sekitar 6km/jam.Baca Juga: Geser Yang “Manual,” Selamat Datang Era Robotika di BandaraDilalah YAPE sudah terlatih untuk menghindari rintangan yang ada di depannya, namun kepadatan Bandara Frankfurt yang tercatat hingga menyentuh angka 69 juta pengunjung setiap tahunnya ini menghadirkan tantangan tersendiri bagi robot tersebut.Kalau sudah seperti ini, mampukah YAPE bersanding dengan tenaga manusia dalam melayani penumpang kelak?Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Robot YAPE.

Tourism Minister Welcomes Expansion of Rio Nuevo Village Attraction

first_img “As we expand our experiential offerings, we will, in turn, increase Jamaica’s overall appeal and demand. This diversity is important as we seek to attract five million visitors and generate US$5 billion in tourism by 2021,” he added. Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says the Rio Nuevo Village attraction in St. Mary is making a major contribution to heritage tourism in Jamaica and efforts to grow visitor arrivals.“Heritage tourism contributes to the growth of community economies, creates new jobs and strengthens local identity while increasing the competitiveness of the destination,” he noted.“As we expand our experiential offerings, we will, in turn, increase Jamaica’s overall appeal and demand. This diversity is important as we seek to attract five million visitors and generate US$5 billion in tourism by 2021,” he added.Minister Bartlett was speaking at the official launch of rafting and kayaking at Rio Nuevo Village on Wednesday (July 25).The 30-acre village is located at the site of the historic battle between Great Britain and Spain for Jamaica in 1655. There is a Taino museum on the property, and the grounds are a nesting site for local and migratory birds.With the expansion, recreational activities now include not only tours of the property and nature walks but bar service and entertainment as well.“We welcome attractions like Rio Nuevo Village, which expands our offerings and enhances the overall tourism product,” said Mr. Bartlett.“This 30-acre multidimensional attraction is a historic site that was home to one of the biggest Taino settlements in St. Mary and houses a museum that has one of the most comprehensive collections of authentic Taino artefacts in Jamaica,” he noted.“Visitors increasingly seek out heritage attractions like Rio Nuevo Village in their quest for more authentic and engaging Jamaican experiences,” he said.Mr. Bartlett commended operator of Rio Nuevo Village, David Wilson, who invested more than US$2 million to develop the attraction, which has been in operation for some seven years. “Heritage tourism contributes to the growth of community economies, creates new jobs and strengthens local identity while increasing the competitiveness of the destination,” he noted.
