- Market analysts foresee a revenue-building trend in the global autonomous robotic security during the coming decade, and autonomous robot developer Knightscope is in a competitive position to take advantage of the trend
- Many AI-enhanced robot sentries are already making appearances in the news, such as flying drones patrolling military bases and inventory-managing machines serving retail operations
- Knightscope’s security robot models include stationary products as well as mobile machines that patrol indoor and outdoor locations
- The models include features such as 360-degree eye-level HD streaming video, face and license plate recognition, and infrared thermal detection
- Knightscope has built a cadre of more than 17,000 investors through its Reg A+ offerings, among whom are many law enforcement and private security professionals who have their own insights on the security industry
Little by little, it appears the age of robotic sentinel patrols is becoming a reality. While not the apocalyptic vision of science fiction standards ranging from the X-Men to Robocop, today’s news outlets are increasingly carrying reports about AI-driven flying drones (https://ibn.fm/1YFYj), network-patrolling software platforms (https://ibn.fm/rVmPT), product transports (https://ibn.fm/NQmWL) and inventory-managing machines (https://ibn.fm/g2son).
Autonomous security innovator Knightscope has its own vision of robotics efficiency, developing models designed for differing vigilance needs — its K1 robot is a stationary machine, while the K3 can rove around, monitoring essential functions in indoor environments. The K5 is an outdoor-suitable machine that can manage environs designed to allow wheelchair access, including parking lots and walkways.
Knightscope’s impetus is creating a robotic force that can reduce company dependence on personnel who may be subject to inattention in the performance of repetitive, routine tasks and who may be subject to physical harm in dangerous circumstances.
“If you can imagine putting a human being into a place where they’re doing the same thing over and over and over again, they become ineffective very, very quickly,” Marketing and Sales Vice President Stacy Stephens said in a video report about the company’s products (https://ibn.fm/OeM5R). “You can also imagine having to put somebody in the line of fire in a dangerous situation — a robot doesn’t care about that. You put them in there instead of a human being, you make it safer and much more productive.”
The robots are already being deployed by entities such as hospitals, police departments, Fortune 1000 companies and most recently the federal government’s Veterans Administration (https://ibn.fm/1uJpn). They feature technology that helps them fulfill a variety of data collection tasks, such as recognition ability for people, faces, license plates, thermal fluctuations and signals.
Features such as 360-degree eye-level HD streaming video and speakers for live or recorded communication make them responsive to their environments and allow human monitors to interact with the environment as well.
“If you just look at the metrics, crime has a trillion dollar negative economic impact on the U.S. every single year. It’s a hidden tax we all pay in blood, tears and treasure,” CEO William Santana Li said during a recent fireside chat hosted by IPO Edge in partnership with Florida trade group The Palm Beach Hedge Fund Association (https://ibn.fm/fFg1b). “And the guards and the officers, frankly, just don’t have the tools that we should provide to them as a country. … If you would have told me back in 2013 when we started the company that the entire nation would be focused (now) on reimagining public safety, we’re in the middle of a pandemic and the robots are immune, like, this is a science fiction kind of script but, you know, here we are. Perfect timing.”
Knightscope is privately held, but its more than 17,000 investors include many of the people most affected by the robot models’ footprint — security officers of large corporations, shopping mall directors, municipal police officers and federal agents.
Analysts at Research Dive report the global autonomous security robots market is expected to experience significant growth between now and 2027 (https://ibn.fm/bKh87), and Knightscope’s ground-up product profile puts it in a competitive position as market forces unfold.
