How Does it Work?

The Knightscope K5 Autonomous Data Machine utilizes a combination of autonomous technology, robotics and predictive analytics to provide a commanding but friendly physical presence while gathering important real-time on-site data with its numerous sensors.

Data collected through these sensors is processed through the K5's predictive analytics engine, combined with existing business, government and crowdsourced social data sets, and subsequently assigned an alert level that determines when the community and the authorities should be notified of a concern.

If an alert is pushed, the K5 machine will turn on all of its sensors to not only allow the entire community to review the data, but to contribute important real-time information. Our approach alleviates any privacy concerns, engages the community on a social level to effectively crowdsource security, and provides an important feedback loop to the prediction engine.

Knightscope's Mission - Cut Crime by 50%

CUSTOMER Applications

Knightscope’s quickest avenue to commercialize the K5 technology is in outdoor environments at corporate campuses, shopping centers and with private security companies. Tedious and monotonous monitoring will be handled by the K5 leaving the strategic, “hands-on” activities to security personnel.

Knightscope has also received numerous inquiries proposing a variety of use cases where the K5 would make a positive impact. These offer substantial future growth opportunities in areas including, but not limited to, schools, hotels, auto dealerships, stadiums, casinos, law enforcement agencies, seaports and airports.
