Knightscope, a leader in the development of autonomous security capabilities, is reimagining public safety to make the United States the safest country in the world, through an innovative line of Autonomous Security Robot (“ASR”) products that combine self-driving technology, robotics, and artificial intelligence (https://nnw.fm/ovnXX).
In the United States, a violent crime occurs every 24.6 seconds and a property crime every 4.1 seconds, according to Knightscope statistics. Moreover, it is estimated that there are only a little over two million law enforcement and security officers across the country to help and protect a population of over 300 million people across all 50 states. Knightscope’s ASRs are helping to bridge the gap, offering valuable assistance and coverage and supporting law enforcement personnel to do their jobs more effectively.
The ASRs are typically used for patrolling and peacekeeping, as a means of physical deterrence by providing a visible, force multiplying, physical security presence to help protect assets and deter crime. However, they have also taken a more active role in fighting crime by assisting law enforcement and security with the arrests of suspects in crimes that range from armed robbery to hit-and-run accidents. More information about the work Knightscope is doing to fight crime is available at www.Knightscope.com/crime.
Knightscope’s current offering includes three ASR models being utilized across five time zones in the United States: K1, K3, and K5.
Recognized for its achievements with the 2018 Security Today New Product of the Year Award, K1 is a stationary machine that can be used in indoor or outdoor environments and is suitable for use in a wide range of spaces including parking structures, lobby and reception areas, high-risk areas, help or assistance points, transportation shuttle stops and more.
K3 is an indoor ASR that moves at speeds up to three miles per hour. It runs on its own 24/7/365 and can autonomously recharge itself without human intervention. It is the smart eyes and ears that cover many areas without the need for monotonous patrols. The K3 is suitable for environments such as malls, warehouses lobbies or offices, hospitals, airports, casinos, etc.
K5 is primarily used outdoors, even though it does have the capability of being used indoors. It features 24/7/365 operation and the ability to recharge autonomously without human intervention. This ASR model is best suited for large outdoor spaces and moves up to three miles per hour. The K5 has been operated for nearly one million hours in the field, including three winters. The K5 can be used in many large-spaced venues, including but not limited to hospitals, police departments, municipalities, airports, stadiums, manufacturing facilities, corporations and others.
All three of the ASR models feature the Knightscope Securities Operations Center (KSOC), which features force-multiplying physical deterrence, facial recognition, 360-degree HD video streaming, automatic license plate recognition, thermal anomaly detection, and so much more.
Knightscope has plans to develop other security solutions in the near future and is already in the process of raising additional growth capital while also preparing for a potential public listing. The company has already reserved the NASDAQ ticker symbol ‘KSCP’ and you can learn more reading the blog “Are You Going Public?!” (https://nnw.fm/eN5mN). Since its foundation in 2013, Knightscope has raised more than $70 million to build all of its technology from scratch and is now backed by more than 16,000 investors and four major corporations.
