K5 Autonomous Data Machine
Officially the K5 Autonomous Data Machine, Knightscope's new security robot was designed, according to CEO William Santana Li, with the Sandy Hook Promise in mind -- with its own spin that robotic surveillance can help public spaces like schools, malls, and business campuses regain a sense of safety. After a year-long beta program that starts in January, Knightscope hopes to roll out its finished product by 2015.
"Our plan is to be able to cut crime by 50 percent in an area. When we do that, every mayor across this planet is going to be giving us a call," Li said.
