Knightscope noted that the ASR will monitor and secure the hotel’s parking areas and notify staff of potential threats, enabling swift response when help is required.
Operators and administrators, when incorporating the robot, are expected to consider all facets of security.
This approach will help achieve organisational, technical, as well as physical measures for timely prevention and response to any potential threat.
K5v5 ASR is also claimed to offer a branded guest experience with customised broadcast messages greeting passersby.
These messages also serve as a deterrent to potential wrongdoers.
The ASR also includes thermal anomaly detection and automatic signal detection, along with watchlists for approved, denied, and unknown MAC addresses.
It detects individuals during restricted hours and has license plate recognition for parking monitoring and watchlists of vehicles that are approved and denied.
Knightscope develops fully autonomous security robots and blue-light emergency communication systems to safeguard residential, workplace, educational, and public spaces.
