LG Clearing The Air At CES 2018 With PuriCare & DualCool

AC uses AI to save energy

LG Electronics will launch its newest smart air solutions for the home at CES 2018: an air purifier with a fine-dust sensor, and an air conditioner with voice recognition and LG’s DeepThinQ artificial intelligence technology.

The cylindrical design of the LG PuriCare enables 360-degree filtering, and a Clean Booster feature better distributes clean air throughout the room while delivering gentle airflow at the base. This combines to make the device an ideal product for families with young children and pets, said LG.

Even when LG PuriCare is in standby mode, it can still monitor air quality and can power on when filtering is required, added the company.

Also debuting at CES 2018, the LG DualCool ThinQ Stand Inverter air conditioner is equipped with voice technology that lets home owners control their indoor temperature with a single phrase. The LG Dual Inverter Compressor minimizes the speed of the compressor, providing high-energy efficiency and lower noise levels, said LG, while the company’s DeepThinQ AI technology directs more airflow in the direction of individuals in the room using spatial recognition.

In addition to recognizing the presence of people in the room, the Intelligent Human Movement Sensor also adjusts the strength of the air flow depending on the proximity of the person or people to the unit, said LG. By analyzing the daily behavioral patterns of the residents, the LG DualCool ThinQ AC reportedly learns what parts of the house require cooling at specific times of the day, maintaining optimal temperatures and saving energy.

“When it comes to making the home more comfortable and more convenient, LG’s intelligent home appliances are leading the industry,” said David VanderWaal, marketing VP for LG Electronics USA. “Artificial intelligence is continuing to evolve and LG is committed to using this technology to improve consumers’ quality of life, especially when it comes to air care.”

LG will be located at booth 11100 at CES.
