The K5 will not only be able to maneuver autonomously, but it will do so with what Knightscope calls crime prediction algorithms that will let the K5 know the best downtimes to charge and to upload and download data, as well as how to alert human beings when a situation may be on the brink of becoming dangerous.
On top of that, the bot will be equipped with license plate and facial recognition, thermal imaging sensors, LIDAR 3D mapping, and eventually, said co-founder Stacey Stephens, the ability to sniff out chemical and biological weapons, as well as airborne pathogens.
