Knightscope (NASDAQ: KSCP), a leading developer of autonomous security robots (“ASRs”) and blue light emergency communication systems, has announced its fifth-generation K5 ASR (“K5v5”). The company has begun production and shipping on the latest version of its crime-fighting robot, which has been redesigned from the ground up.
According to the announcement, production on the updated version of the company’s flagship product has begun at KSCP’s Silicon Valley headquarters, with some devices beginning to ship to clients across the country. The new K5v5 ASRs reflect insight and enhancements drawn from more than 2.5 million hours of field operations with real clients.
The updated robots feature a wider stance that creates a more planted propulsion system; raised camera elevation for near eye-level, 4K video capture; new battery architecture for improved performance; audio enhancements for broadcast messages, intercom and public address; and additional lighting for greater nighttime visibility. In addition, production time for the devices was significantly reduced, and the new device is designed for easier service and maintenance.
“The K5v5 is Knightscope’s flagship ASR and is capable of both indoor and outdoor deployments,” the company stated in the press release. “For the past eight and a half years, the K5 has successfully autonomously navigated parking lots, parking structures, corporate campuses, schools, hospitals, transportation hubs, casinos, malls, warehouses and many other locations across the United States, reducing crime and keeping people safe at the places they live, work, study and visit. The next generation K5 will build on that experience and continue to be a driving force in the company’s mission to make the U.S. the safest country in the world.”
