South Korean online platform Naver is opening the new world headquarters of its Naver Labs research and development subsidiary in the city of Seongnam this month.
The 28-story building, which the company calls "the world's first robot-friendly building," will feature 100 wheeled robots that will deliver packages and food/drink orders to 5,000 human employees in the building.
The robots can use the building's 36 human elevators but also have access to the Roboport, a robot-exclusive elevator that works like an internal Ferris wheel.
The robots navigate the building using a traditional video camera, the building's internal 5G network, and a "digital twin" that is cross-referenced with the camera feed to place robots within six inches of a desired location.
