After a walk-out by students at Amherst College on April 13, asking for the college police department to be dismantled, the campus hired security consultants to help determine if the campus police officers should be removed. This consulting firm will help Amherst research the existing safety measures that they have in place to help change the strategies for safety modules in place (https://ibn.fm/Iv6rC).
The Massachusetts college is not the only one examining alternative safety modules. In the wake of reports of recent attacks in the New York subway system, Mayor Bill de Blasio has committed to adding 250 more police officers to the subways to increase the security presence (https://ibn.fm/PNoIJ). There are currently more than 3,000 police officers patrolling the subway system, the largest force deployed in the system in 25 years, according to the mayor. Additionally, 80 unarmed auxiliary officer volunteers have been deployed to 20 of the busiest stations to provide enhanced security. While the extra security deployment is likely to help deter crime, it also comes with added expenses, making it difficult to maintain such a large officer presence long term.
Knightscope, a developer of advanced physical security technologies utilizing fully autonomous security robots (“ASRs”), may offer a reasonable solution in both scenarios. The company’s ASR offering is affordable, experienced and effective, and provides multiple security advantages. The ASRs all feature the Knightscope Security Operations Center (“KSOC”) interface that provides real-time access to data around the clock, as well as 360-degree eye-level HD video streaming, people detection, facial recognition, automatic license plate recognition, thermal anomaly detection, and automatic signal detection, among others.
Three models have been released by Knightscope – K1, K3, and K5. The K1 is an award-winning model that is classified as a multi-purpose security robot. A stationary unit with indoor and outdoor terrain capability, the K1 utilizes a standard 110v power outlet and transfers data through cellular networks, wireless internet, or Ethernet.
K3 is a fully autonomous robot that is best used for indoor security. The top speed of the K3 is three miles per hour, and it uses people detection to stay out of others’ paths. The K3 is best suited for malls, warehouses, hospitals, offices, casinos, lobbies, and more.
K5 is a fully autonomous robot that can be used indoors or outdoors. It features a top speed of three miles per hour and runs 24/7/365. The K5 has already spent almost 1 million hours in the field, including three winters, and has successfully helped prevent crime and maintain security in the places it has been deployed. This unit offers better security in the places we work, study, and visit.
The versatility and cost-efficiency of its ASR models position Knightscope as a leading provider of autonomous security solutions on the expanding global security robot market. The security robot sector worldwide was valued at $1.34 billion in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.56% and reach $2.37 billion by 2022 (https://ibn.fm/F4V8D).
Knightscope’s long-term vision focuses on the greater good. The company wants to make the United States of America the safest nation in the world while continuing to support millions of law enforcement and security professionals across the country.
