Enhancing its already robust security/safety measures, the Parker Jewish Institute has introduced an autonomous security robot, from Knightscope, the advanced public safety technology company.
The Knightscope K5 Autonomous Security Robot is designed and trained to patrol Parker’s lobby and hallways. Bolstered by artificial intelligence, the 5.5-foot-tall, 3-foot-wide robot provides actionable intelligence to Parker’s security team members, alerting them if it encounters anything warranting their immediate attention.
Weighing 400 pounds, and featuring the most advanced technology, the robot travels at walking speed, between 1 and 3 miles per hour, as it provides further protection for the Institute’s patients, residents, visitors and team members. The robot also features a duress button, which, when pressed, immediately notifies on-site Parker’s on-site security teams when someone is in need of assistance.
“Our security robot is deployed throughout the day, further increasing the security of everyone on the Parker premises,” said Michael N. Rosenblut, Parker’s president and CEO. “We are pleased to implement this state-of-the-art technology, making Parker a safer, more secure environment, which is of utmost importance to us.”
The security robot is a welcome figure at Parker. Members of the Parker community recognize the robot as an important security element. Most importantly, the security robot further boosts Parker’s safety profile, allowing team members to focus even more on patient care.
