Today, students from Inglewood's Crozier Middle School got up close and personal with LAX's new robot, "Star." Prior to their visit, students toured the airfield, met with airport officials and had the opportunity to submit name ideas for the robot. Three winners were chosen and all of the winners included "Star" as part of their submissions.
Star will move into the Tom Bradley International Terminal in June. She will help guests travel through the terminal with wayfinding, suggest restaurant options and provide enhanced customer service. Guests can also interact with Star to obtain flight and gate information, dining and retail options, and Star will even provide information on food pricing and menus.
The robot is an information source, but she also can have fun. Yes, Star dances and she will take selfies and group pictures and then guests can share them on their social media platforms.
