VIDEO: Knightscope's Robots Can Help Law Enforcement Officers Secure Facilities, Prevent Crime

Security robot manufacturer Knightscope says its systems have helped law enforcement officers stop carjackings, prevent vandalism, detect insurance fraud, and arrest a sexual predator.

The company's latest model is the K5 autonomous robot, a weatherproof robot that is built for both outdoor and indoor operations. The K5 features 360-degree high-definition cameras with low-light/no-light capabilities, 30 days of data storage, visual and audio alarms, people detection, license plate recognition, and signal detection.

Knightscope says the K5 can operate 24/7, monitoring facilities for security issues and notifying users when there is a problem such as an unauthorized vehicle in a restricted area. In addition, the very presence and appearance of the K5 acts as a deterrent.
