- Robots to aid tourists, clean floors at South Korean airport
By YOUKYUNG LEE, AP Technology Writer - Tuesday Jul 4, 2017
INCHEON, South Korea (AP) — Robots will start roaming South Korea's largest airport this summer, helping travelers find their boarding gates and keep its floors clean as the country prepares for its first Winter Olympics game.A jumbo cleaning robot will help cleaning staff swab the wide expanses of floors in the airport west of Seoul.Troika, about the size of a young teen, is equipped with a rectangular display on its front that looks like a giant smartphone screen and can show flight information, an airport map and weather data.Another state-owned airport operator, Korea Airports Corp., which operates 15 international airports in South Korea but not Incheon airport, also has teamed up with local companies to introduce air-purifying robots to measure air quality and clean terminals.Troika can recognize its location inside the airport terminal and navigate around passers-by and obstacles, said Kim Hyoungrock, the chief research engineer at LG Electronics who oversaw the robot's development.

- Tablets X-rayed separately in new U.S. airport screening
By Alan Levin - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
U.S. airline passengers will have to take tablet computers and other large electronic devices out of carry-on bags for inspection as the government phases in tighter screening prompted by fears that terror groups can hide bombs in them.Most passengers already had to remove laptops from their bags when going through security, and now they will need to remove e-readers, tablet computers and other devices so they can be X-rayed separately, the Transportation Security Administration announced Wednesday.“It is critical for TSA to constantly enhance and adjust security screening procedures to stay ahead of evolving threats and keep passengers safe,” TSA Acting Administrator Huban A. Gowadia said in an email.By separating personal electronic items such as laptops, tablets, e-readers and handheld game consoles for screening, TSA officers can more closely focus on resolving alarms and stopping terror threats.The move, which comes at the peak summer travel season, is part of a sweeping overhaul of how airport security agencies screen electronics following intelligence that terror groups have refined their ability to sneak bombs in laptops and other devices.Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly had threatened for months to impose a ban on large electronic devices in airline cabins for all flights headed to the U.S. after imposing such restrictions in March on flights leaving from 10 airports in the Middle East and North Africa.Airport lines surged in 2016, prompting thousands of travelers to miss flights, as TSA staffing levels fell and screeners became overwhelmed by rising numbers of travelers.Airlines for America, a trade group representing large carriers, said in an email it “remains committed to working collaboratively with DHS officials to strike the appropriate balance of maintaining the efficiency of the system, while ensuring the highest levels of security are in place.”American Airlines isn’t concerned that the enhanced screenings will slow movement through airport security lines because the procedures were tested in TSA lanes at its hubs in Los Angeles and Phoenix, said spokesman Ross Feinstein.American is working with Analogic Corp. to expand the use of a new X-ray scanner borrowed from the medical industry to create a higher-definition, three-dimensional image that is better able to detect explosives.
