Knightscope, Inc. Committed to Offering Peace Through Superior Technology with Autonomous Security Robots

  • Knightscope’s ASRs have completed over one million field hours and are continuing to improve over time based on field experience
  • Knightscope designs, engineers, and builds its ASRs in Silicon Valley, continuing to create American jobs in an economy severely impacted by the pandemic
  • The company is committed to changing the way public safety and protection are delivered nationwide
  • By joining the $39 billion self-storage industry, Knightscope is targeting to become a prominent security provider in the sector, translating into further opportunities for growth

Knightscope, a developer of advanced physical security technologies utilizing fully autonomous robots focused on enhancing U.S. security operations, is committed to helping create peace and maintaining public safety nationwide via the superior technology it develops and deploys. Combining self-driving technology, robotics and artificial intelligence, Knightscope’s Autonomous Security Robots (“ASRs”) provide 24/7/365 security and are currently patrolling five time zones across the United States, assisting in the creation of safer public and private spaces.

The company’s ASRs are a means of physical deterrence, patrolling sites autonomously and providing a visible, force multiplying, physical security presence to help protect assets, monitor changes in the area and deter crime. The collected data is available round the clock through the company’s Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC), an intuitive interface that also features 360-degree eye-level HD video streaming, facial recognition, people detection, thermal anomaly detection, automatic license plate recognition, and automatic signal detection.

In a recent video presentation titled “Knightscope: Peace Through Superior Technology,” CEO William Santana Li explained how Knightscope’s ASRs are changing the way protection is delivered across the United States ( It is estimated that there are two million police officers and security personnel across the United States for more than 300 million people across the 50 states. Knightscope’s ASRs are helping to bridge the gap, covering more ground with round-the-clock coverage.

In addition to patrolling and peacekeeping, the ASRs have already helped law enforcement and security with the arrests of suspects in crimes that range from armed robbery to hit-and-run accidents. More information about the work Knightscope is doing to fight crime is available at

The current ASR product offering from Knightscope currently includes a K1 stationary unit, a K3 indoor machine, and the K5 outdoor machine. Since the K5 outdoor machine’s deployment, the City of Huntington Park Police Department has noted significant changes in their calls for service (down 10%), crime reports (down 46%), arrests (up 27%), and citations (down 68%). The data was compiled from June to December 2018, before deployment, and compared to June to December 2019, after deployment.

Since the company’s creation in 2013, several milestones have already been achieved, including:

  • Establishing a 15,000-square-foot facility in Mountain View, California, where Knightscope designs, engineers, and builds their proprietary technology;
  • Completing more than one million hours in the field, securing contracts across five United States’ time zones; and
  • Continuing to hire and navigate the global pandemic without interruptions, despite the current economic and societal disruptions.

Furthering its position in the industry, Knightscope recently signed an agreement with a Southern California storage facility to utilize the company’s ASR technology. Storage units are particularly susceptible to theft and vandalization. Entry into this $39 billion a year industry offers Knightscope tremendous potential for growth (

The long-term vision of Knightscope is to keep an eye on the greater good. The company’s mission is to make the United States of America the safest nation, supporting millions of law enforcement and security personnel across the country.
