- Knightscope designs and develops autonomous security robots (“ASRs”) that use the latest in technological advances to provide clients with a sense of security
- The company’s ASR robots’ have a wide range of capabilities that depend on analysis of video, audio, thermal and digital data cues, integrated through the remote access Knightscope Security Operations Center (“KSOC”)
- The KSOC’s functionality serves client security needs, but in an evolving budgetary landscape could find uses in monitoring and managing business intelligence, policy compliance and liability reduction efforts as well
- AI-driven analytics are expected to be a standard element in more than half of new video surveillance installations by 2023
Corporations are finding that their IT departments and security personnel are increasingly connected. The functionality and availability of artificial intelligence-enhanced technology are granting C-level executives options for managing their facilities and products that once were only imagined in the science fiction realm.
A recent article appearing in the e-magazine Security notes that advanced video management systems (“VMS”) have become an ROI talking point during budget cycle reviews as security personnel explain the potential for companies to greatly enhance their ability to monitor and manage business intelligence, policy compliance and liability reduction efforts.
“Today’s intelligent VMS solutions enable video to be sharable in more secure ways with business operations and crisis response teams. No longer do VMS platforms have to be designed by and exclusively used for security,” the article states (https://ibn.fm/DaHnr). “The new capabilities for cloud storage, edge analytics, AI processing, privacy protection for GDPR and integration with other data sources through robust APIs allow businesses to leverage their investment in VMS technology to directly support their bottom line.”
Autonomous security robot (“ASR”) innovator Knightscope is largely focused on preventing and detecting crime using an API that is adaptable to its clients’ needs. Although the company’s autonomous robots have been hailed as the means of reducing threats and risks in crime-prone locations (https://ibn.fm/Dhv0P), their Knightscope Security Operations Center (“KSOC”) browser-based user interface provides a capability that goes beyond fulfilling simple security needs, much like the VMS systems Security mentions.
The KSOC’s integrated system allows human operators to interact from a remote position with people in the environment surrounding the robot. The company’s K5 model stands at over 5 feet tall and uses 360-degree high-definition night and day video capture positioned at eye-level, live streaming and recorded high-definition video transmission in conjunction with analytic features such as automatic license plate recognition, “parking meter”-type analysis of how long vehicles are left in a parking lot, time-stamped people detection with an accompanying alert system, thermal imaging with accompanying alerts that has had the potential to detect COVID hazards during the pandemic and digital signal detection in sensitive data areas.
Knightscope’s product developers are continually working to ensure their ASR models are using technological tools that are not only functional but reputable, and that operators can access real-time data at any time of day or night from a centralized control vantage point.
The Security article cites Gartner publication research that forecasts AI-driven video analytics will be a standard element in more than half of new video surveillance installations by 2023 and that 70 percent of security surveillance cameras will have real-time monitoring and analytics functions embedded in them straight from the manufacturer by 2025 (https://ibn.fm/8RmaS).
Knightscope’s visionary approach to corporate and government client security has kept it at the forefront of the trends, and has secured it the backing of more than 28,000 investors in capital raises since its inception in 2013 even though the company is not publicly listed at this time.
