If you are an avid traveler, you must have felt the need for an expert peer who could guide you through navigation and also haul your luggage if need be. Well, that is what luxury travelers could soon enjoy across Japan’s railway stations.

JRE Robotics Station, a spinoff company of East Japan Railways, recently revealed its plans of deploying a fleet of multi-purpose robots that will communicate in various languages and help tourists with their luggage, queries and even keep an eye on shoplifters, writes Entrepreneur.

The idea of a futuristic workforce of robots has a unique appeal and could benefit the railway company that also operates hotels and shopping centers in Japan, notes CNET.
