The Knightscope K5 Autonomous Data Machine is comprised of three core technologies:


The control layer provides for autonomous and semi-autonomous operation, machine learning and machine-to-machine communications.


The sensor fusion layer is comprised of numerous types of payload sensor options combined into a usable output.


The system control layer includes a graphical user interface with remote operation, real-time data review, and mission planning capabilities.

Sensor Options

  • Optical Character Recognition

    Converts scanned images of alphanumeric text into machine-encoded text for comparison against a defined database or ‘Hot List’
  • Omnidirectional Imaging

    360-degree high definition video capture
  • Thermal Imaging

    Used to detect and measure minute temperature differences
  • Microphones

    High quality audio capture
  • Air Quality

    Monitors ambient air for a number of specified particulates
  • Ultrasonic

    Multiple detectors that measure speed and distances to surrounding objects
  • Infrared

    Uses the infrared light spectrum invisible to the human eye to provide video in low or no-light conditions
  • Radar

    Detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, altitude, direction or speed of objects
  • Lidar

    Remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light - provides accurate 3D mapping of the environment and specific objects
