- Silicon Valley-based Knightscope produces autonomous security robots (“ASRs”) that provide indoor and outdoor security 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
- Knightscope’s ASRs surveil client properties using an array of artificial intelligence, machine learning and Internet of Things tools
- The ASRs are part of a growing trend in consumer acceptance of technologies that independently monitor circumstances and make recommendations or take actions
- Knightscope’s investor base grew rapidly between early January and early February from 18,000 to 19,000 through the company’s Reg A+ offering
Businesses and homeowners are increasingly adopting Internet of Things (“IoT”) technology to automate and remotely control a wide variety of home and office functions and to monitor for problems, including security risks. Alexa, Ring and Nest have practically become family members within modern households, demonstrating the prevalence of IoT for consumers and driving expectations that smart devices connected online will increase from 35 billion in 2021 to 75 billion by 2025, according to Forbes (https://ibn.fm/nQSNP).
Far from simply describing products that monitor behavior and produce data, the IoT has become real-world applications built on their ability to process data quickly and make recommendations or take actions based on its analyses using artificial intelligence (“AI”) and machine learning (“ML”) technologies.
Security robot manufacturer Knightscope harnessed IoT developments to enhance the performance of its autonomous sentinels, which monitor, record and relay information according to business client needs. The unsleeping “knights” can function in zero light environments, using infrared and thermal technologies to detect the presence of human activity in the darkness as well as potential fire dangers and then alert human partners in their realm’s round table to developing circumstances (https://ibn.fm/zbshy).
The robots may also monitor transmission frequencies, and can respond to community alerts by analyzing license plates to help with searches, for example. Their high-definition streaming video capacity utilizes cameras that surveil a 360-degree panorama.
Like the majority of industrial robots being used by corporations to pick and pack orders, weld metal parts and perform inspections, Knightscope has developed the first generation K1 Stationary model as well as the first generation K3 indoor-roving model. The fourth generation K5 machine improved on its predecessors’ performance in outdoor environments when it was unveiled in late 2018, working in tandem with the sixth generation Knightscope Security Operations Center (“KSOC”) management platform (https://ibn.fm/4CCIh) and showcasing the company’s ability to continually respond to circumstances with progressive features as it was deployed the following months.
CEO William Santana Li describes the company’s autonomous security robots (“ASR”) as the means of making the United States the safest country in the world.
“Each one proudly displays the stars and stripes, signifying our patriotic duty to our country,” Santana Li says in an investor relations video (https://ibn.fm/HfY85).
“Just take a moment to imagine the positive impact we can have together on our schools, justice system, government, communities and, most importantly, the safety of your loved ones. It would be an absolutely priceless achievement,” he says. “The country and Knightscope are both at an inflection point. Self-driving technology, artificial technology and robotics are going to change the world dramatically, and we’re right in the middle of it all here in the heart of Silicon Valley.”
Knightscope robots are operating across the country’s five continental time zones 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. The company’s social media blog recently announced that its investor pool has rapidly grown from 18,000 to 19,000 in a month’s time (https://ibn.fm/diTxP) through its Reg A+ offering, with security officers of large corporations, shopping mall directors, municipal police officers and federal agents on board.
