The current prototype of the K5, which will be going out to partners in a beta program in 2014, will be equipped with 360-degree video capture capability, LIDAR 3D mapping to enable autonomous movement, and license plate recognition, which will allow the K5 to check passing vehicles against a police "hot list" of stolen ones to detect potential criminal activity.
Later models will gain more advanced sensing capabilities, such as thermal sensing and facial recognition, as well as the ability to maneuver new terrains.
