Uber Has a Five-Foot-Tall Robot Guard That Patrols Its Company’s Lot
This is not to say that human guards are obsolete just yet. If the K-5 discovers wrongdoing, it documents the intruder with its multiple high-definition cameras, sets off an alarm, and notifies flesh-and-blood security personnel that there is a problem. Also, it can’t actually capture car thieves: People are still needed to do the final enforcement.
That said, K5 can be rented for only $7 per hour, a good deal cheaper than a human guard’s salaried rate. That suggests that there is potential for robots to eventually to take over security duties altogether.
