MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--()--Knightscope, Inc., a developer of advanced physical security technologies focused on enhancing U.S. security operations, announced today that facial recognition software utilizing deep learning to detect, analyze and compare faces is now available, in beta format, on its K1 security robot platform to help enhance Workplace Violence Prevention (WVP) programs for companies across the United States.

“According to OSHA, 58% of senior managers have been threatened by an employee, and about 2 million employees report some type of workplace violence each year in the US,” said Stacy Stephens, former police officer, EVP and chief client officer at Knightscope. “Knightscope is providing its clients with a way to ingest images of known threats and persons of interest to provide an additional layer of protection for the places we visit and work.”

Knightscope has been testing its beta release of facial recognition with existing client, Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif. “Knightscope’s enhanced capabilities provide Pechanga with added levels of security that were not possible before,” said Robert Krauss, Vice President of Public Safety at Pechanga Resort Casino. “We began working with Knightscope and their security robots over a year ago. Pechanga knew the technology would be another tool for the resort-casino’s 350-person public safety team in maintaining wellbeing for our guests and team members.”

Knightscope will demonstrate the new system for the first time publicly at ISC West in Las Vegas on April 10th through the 12th in booth #2127 at the Sands Expo Convention Center. ISC West is the largest converged security industry trade show in the US, and Knightscope will be featured in its Unmanned Security Pavilion.

Knightscope will also be leading a discussion for registered attendees entitled “Leveraging Autonomous Security Robots with Facial Recognition Software for Your Workplace Violence Prevention (WVP) Program.”
