Lowe’s adds robots at some U.S. stores to patrol parking lots

Lowe’s has introduced security robots at some of its U.S. stores to patrol the parking lots. With concerns of rising violence and thefts at some of its stores there, the giant retailer is using the self-driven, 400-pound Knightscope K5 robots  to enhance security, reports Business Insider.

Pilot tests of the new technology are happening at stores in Philadelphia, Washington state, North Carolina, D.C., and California.
