UBER’S SECURITY GUARD
As shown by Mishtalk.com, UBER has shown a new security guard robot that will be greeting visitors to the company's inspection lot in Mission Bay, in San Francisco. Interestingly, there are now several companies using and/or further developing this category of robot, which will patrol warehouses, greet people at hotels, mind parking lots and the like. Amazon and Gamma2 are also in this game.
Mishtalk.com notes that "The robot is a K5, a 300-pound security robot made by Silicon Valley start-up Knightscope. It’s a stand-in for a human security guard. The robot has multiple high-definition cameras for 360-degree vision, a thermal camera, a laser rangefinder, a weather sensor, a license-plate recognition camera, four microphones, and person recognition capabilities."
