Robot Helps Passengers Through Seattle Airport Security 

Airport officials say the robot isn't designed to replace human workers, but to allow them to spend more time on critical security work

SEATTLE – A robot named Tracey greeted passengers at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, providing tips to get them smoothly through security checkpoints.

The red and white human-sized robot carries a large electronic sign and can speak to passengers in six different languages.

Airport officials say the robot isn’t designed to replace human workers, but to allow them to spend more time on critical security work.


Tracey was created by Advanced Robot Solutions. CEO Paul McManus says it is a demonstration model, but future versions could recognize when a traveler is wearing sunglasses or a hat and ask them to take it off before the security checkpoint.

The robot was on duty temporarily at the Seattle airport Thursday as it hosts a meeting of airport executives from around the country.
