Knightscope Autonomous Security Robot Gets Exposure Boost in Disney+ Episode of ‘Loki’ Series

  • Knightscope develops and manufactures autonomous security robots that utilize an array of technological tools to patrol and monitor client properties on a 24/7 basis  
  • The company’s robots have provided more than a million hours of service to clients since 2015, and recently got high-profile attention through an appearance on the Disney+ streaming superhero series “Loki”
  • Knightscope’s ASR robots are dedicated to helping make the United States safer as a whole, providing video and audio data reception, transmission and analysis, to determine if security concerns and the need for crime deterrence or other emergency intervention are present

When Knightscope’s K5 model autonomous security robot (“ASR”) appeared recently in the second episode of the Disney+ superhero streamer “Loki,” it was cast in a futuristic role that had it roaming the aisles of a big box store in the year 2050 (https://ibn.fm/ZtjZQ). 

But the AI-equipped Knightscope ASRs are very much a part of our present society, having logged over a million hours of service since 2015 with paying clients, patrolling busy parking lots/structures, shopping malls, hospitals, city parks and corporate campuses across the United States. 

Knightscope’s ASRs come in a variety of models. The K5 is designed to function in outdoor environments, performing property security functions in a fully autonomous manner. The K5 may utilize LiDAR, SONAR, GPS and wheel odometer technology to move about its environment recognizing potential obstacles and hazards. 

Its surveillance capabilities function through video and audio data that are monitored and recorded in 360 degrees, as well as infrared and thermal scanning in dark conditions, broadcast signal detection, and select image recognition features. 

It can communicate with people in its environment through pre-recorded messages, live-streaming text-to-audio technology, and directed audio transmissions. And the Loki episode was perhaps an example of the company’s discretion with clients — the company’s social media posts noted that, after “over a year of keeping our mouths stapled, glued and taped shut,” it could finally talk about its part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s multiverse following the airing of the episode (https://ibn.fm/AUd6C).

Property security continues to remain a significant concern for corporate and government clients. As of June 20, Wikipedia listed just shy of 300 mass shooting events in the United States since the beginning of the year that have led to the deaths of nearly 350 people and injuries for more than 1,200 people (https://ibn.fm/tqnrJ). 

None of this year’s incidents up to that date have been school related, but the country’s history of occasional gun violence targeting children and school administrators during school hours — particularly since the April 1999 killings at Colorado’s Columbine High School — has driven municipal efforts to provide more technologically enhanced security measures at schools nationwide. 

In a recent example, Ohio’s governor announced June 16 that more than $10 million in state-based grants will be awarded to fund security enhancements at K-12 public schools and institutions of higher education in the state this year and early next year (https://ibn.fm/UxuhP). 

“It’s important that we work proactively to ensure that our school buildings and grounds are as safe as possible to protect both students and staff,” Governor Mike DeWine stated. “Two new grant programs offered through the Ohio School Safety Center will help schools and universities pinpoint any weaknesses in their physical security and make needed improvements and upgrades.”

In May, a Utah teacher was hailed as a hero for preventing a man from kidnapping an 11-year-old girl or harming other students on an elementary school playground after the teacher saw the stranger behave aggressively and rushed out to respond to the situation (https://ibn.fm/iPDsp). 

Knightscope has declared its mission to make the nation safer through vigilance and a non-threatening IP. 

“A violent crime occurs every four seconds and a property crime every 25 seconds. … Crime has more than a trillion-dollar negative economic impact on the U.S. every single year,” Knightscope founder and CEO William Santana Li said in a YouTube video about the company earlier this year (https://ibn.fm/MRztb). “The ongoing mass shooting violence across the country is not acceptable. That is why I put in 80-100-hour weeks to do something meaningful about it.”
