Hills Engineering Co., Ltd. (hereafter Hills Engineering), a company specializing in autonomous driving-based logistics robots, achieved the feat of winning the Innovation Award at ‘CES 2022’, the world’s largest IT and electronic product convergence exhibition. This is the second time after winning the award at CES2021 for the quarantine robot Coro-Bot®. ‘Hey-bot’, which Hills Engineering exhibited at this exhibition, is an AI-based autonomous driving disinfection and guidance robot that is used in multi-use facilities such as convention centers, hospitals, negative pressure wards, etc. or sensitive places. Heybot supports continuous body temperature measurement and hand sanitizer for personal hygiene, and is optimized to protect people from the COVID-19 pandemic by effectively sterilizing viruses by disinfecting specific areas. In addition, information service can be received using the screen mounted on the robot, and it is designed to create entertainment and promotional effects. In recognition of such outstanding autonomous driving software technology, the company received a business cooperation offer from UBTECH, a world-class unicorn robot company, during CES2022, and signed an MOU with Dream VU, a tech company with cutting-edge LiDAR technology in Silicon Valley. In addition, we received an offer from two robot companies based in the US market to conclude a Distributor Agreement for mutual cooperation in the field of Smart Logistics and are in the process of entering into a partnership agreement.
Hills Engineering CTO Yoon Jong-cheol said, “With this CES2022 Innovation Award as an opportunity, we will launch ‘Soloman’, an artificial intelligence-based autonomous driving platform software that we have been working hard on, in earnest, to launch a logistics robot, a quarantine robot, a guide robot, and a doson robot. We are expanding our business by applying it in earnest to applied markets such as,” he said. In fact, the company applied ‘Corobot’, a quarantine robot upgraded as an R&D project with Korea Midland Power as a purchase conditional R&D project, to the Sejong business headquarters and Boryeong business headquarters as a demonstration project, and delivered two robots to the Goyang Children’s Museum. is expanding
In December 2021, the company received the Robot Technology Award from the Korean Society of Robotics in recognition of its advanced technology for the development of the robot industry and its contribution as a Korean robot company in the global robot market. It also won the Design Winners Service main prize. In addition, at the end of last year, Ventures
As it succeeded in attracting seed investment from fishermen, it was selected as a TIPS company in the robot field, and is emerging as a scale-up company in the small management industry.
