Knightscope’s Autonomous Robots Help Secure the Perimeter in Modern Era of National Hazards

  • Autonomous security robot (“ASR”) developer Knightscope is focused on a mission of making the United States more secure, particularly in the wake of some very recognizable national threats
  • The company’s three ASR models help to secure the perimeter in business offices, government buildings, outdoor public venues and inside healthcare facilities
  • The ASRs provide non-human capacity to avoid boredom on the job, be sickened by other people and suffer deadly injuries from violent criminals
  • The unarmed sentinels are designed to identify, record and relay significant information to human personnel

Perimeter security is the first key to defending property integrity for nearly everyone, from private homeowners to corporate businesses, as well as for temporary event managers such as race directors and government military mobile command members.

Perimeter defense in the form of the private security industry needs to be able to deal with a variety of challenges that may include trespassers from outside the infrastructure and employee inattention within the infrastructure.

Autonomous Security Robot (“ASR”) developer Knightscope has built its mission and technological platform on what it sees as a need to improve how perimeter security is maintained within the United States.

“We are on a mission to make the United States of America the safest country in the world. Yes, it is an audacious goal. But since when in our country do we shy away from what is hard and what is difficult? We are Americans,” a company video states (

The patriotic tone of the promotion underscores national concerns that came into clear focus 20 years ago when terrorists from other countries hijacked a handful of airplanes crossing American soil and turned them into weapons of terrible destruction that cost a large number of lives, and then when someone used the postal system immediately afterward to mail out letters tainted with a deadly biological pathogen to numerous people.

More recently, similar concerns arose when political protests in the nation’s capital led to a riotous invasion of the halls of Congress in January, with threats against elected officials and a few deaths resulting from the incident.

“Each (Knightscope robot) proudly displays the stars and stripes, signifying our patriotic duty to our country,” CEO William Santana Li says as he promotes the company’s mission to serve the United States in an investor relations video (

The company has introduced three models of ASRs thus far for patrolling indoor and outdoor locations. The company notes its robots are unsleeping “knights” that cannot be harmed by COVID or other human-borne viruses, or bored by lengthy periods of uneventful activity, or irreplaceably mortally wounded by malcontents.

Knightscope’s ASRs also can come equipped with the ability for enhanced surveillance in total darkness using infrared and thermal cameras in tandem to observe and record activity that might not otherwise be visible (

While the ASRs are not designed as armed mechanisms such as those portrayed as deadly AI machines in science fiction, or even as weaponized drones controlled by humans in military use, they are nevertheless useful in their AI-enhanced capacity of identifying people and select objects, such as license plates, and then alerting human controllers with recorded information as necessary.

The ASRs have even been lauded after a heat-recognizing camera detected a spike in temperatures within a building and was able to summon intervention before a fire could create large-scale damage.

Knightscope has topped 20,000 investors since rolling out its first autonomous product in 2015, utilizing a Reg A+ offering that allows Knightscope to attract private investments from both accredited and unaccredited investors (
