Robot cafe B:eat which opened in Incheon International Airport in January

KT Corp. announced on Feb. 20 that it would unveil B:eat 2E, an unmanned robot cafe of Dal.com Coffee to which KT’s Giga Genie solutions were applied, at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona, ​​Spain.

B:eat 2E is an upgrade from a 5G-powered barista robot that operates by receiving signals from a 5G base station loaded with a 5G mobile hot spot (MHS). KT's Giga Genie solutions enable a B:eat 2E cafe to take orders for beverages via voice commands from customers and to recommend favorite beverages to customers and answer their questions.

In addition, a B:eat 2E cafe features KT's image recognition solutions that enable it to recognize people around it and greet them. The company plans to upgrade the image recognition solutions to the level of recognizing users’ faces and behavior and providing appropriate services to them in the future.

KT and Dal.com Coffee are expecting to set up a collaboration model for the global launch of B:eat 2E with this exhibition as a beginning.
