Knightscope is a Silicon Valley startup that plans to replace human security guards with robot security guards, the company has revealed two models, the Knightscope K5 and Knightscope K10.
The Knightscope robot security guards feature a 360 degree high definition camera that can record everything around them, they also feature high quality microphones to record sound and a number of other sensors.
Other sensors on these robot security guards include thermal imaging, infrared sensor, ultrasonic distance and speed sensor, license plate scanning, air quality sensors and more.
The robots will collect data and then send it to a central system, and law enforcement will be able to access the central system in real time.
“We founded Knightscope in response to the President and Sandy Hook’s calls to action and with the ultimate goal of providing an avenue for all Americans to join the fight against crime,” said William Santana Li, Chairman and CEO, Knightscope.
The Knightscope K10 is design for larger space, including outdoor areas, and the K5 is designed for smaller space, including inside buildings.

Knightscope will be showing off their new robot security guards with the Knightscope K5 at the Plug and Play Winter Expo in California, and will start beta testing the devices by the end of the year.Filed Under: Technology News, Top News
