Knightscope, a leading developer of autonomous security robots and blue light emergency communication systems, announced that it has signed an agreement with PENN Entertainment to offer Knightscope technologies to its 43 gaming and racing properties nationwide. Knightscope recently deployed its first K5 Autonomous Security Robot (ASR) at Penn Entertainment’s M Resort Spa Casino in Nevada, followed by subsequent deployments at Ameristar Casino Hotel Council Bluffs in Iowa and Hollywood Casino Aurora in Illinois.
“PENN Entertainment’s commitment to safety and the guest experience is extraordinary. We are overjoyed that we will be providing Knightscope technologies across its portfolio to protect the surge of guests arriving and departing from all of its properties daily,” William Santana Li, chairman and CEO at Knightscope, said.
Knightscope ASRs greet guests with a friendly voice while also providing additional eyes and ears for the large human security team. Robots also offer a two-way communication system to enhance the safety of visitors and workers.
