Vegas' M Resort Spa Casino deploys security robot

Knightscope, a developer of autonomous security robots and blue light emergency communication systems, has deployed its K5 Autonomous Security Robot at the M Resort Spa Casino in Las Vegas. 

The K5, nicknamed “M-Bot” by resort staff, patrols the parking lots and garage wearing the M Resort logo. M-Bot greets guests and promotes the M Resort brand while providing additional eyes and ears for the human security team. The robot also offers a two-way communication system to protect visitors and workers. Even more importantly, M-Bot provides some relief to human guards required to patrol in the Las Vegas heat.

"We are always looking for ways to enhance and elevate our guest experience," Patrick Durkin, VP of marketing for M Resort, said in a statement. "M-Bot is a welcomed addition to the security team as it helps provide guest assistance, peace of mind and safety for our guests and staff."

M Resort is a Penn Entertainment property.
