Knightscope Security Robots Log More Than a Million Hours in Crime-prevention Service

  • California-based Knightscope is the developer of three models of autonomous security robots (ASRs) that help make clients’ workplaces safer
  • Knightscope has logged more than a million hours of services for its clients, including live-stream video and data transmission detection, thermal source recognition and remote communication technologies
  • The robots provide a crime-deterrence presence but are themselves non-threatening, even pausing in their duties so visitors can take selfies with them
  • Through the varied capabilities of AI and machine-learning solutions, Knightscope’s autonomous robots help fulfill the company’s mission of making the United States the safest country in the world

Now more than eight years since its founding in April 2013, autonomous security robot (“ASR”) developer Knightscope is celebrating the backing of over 24,000 investors.

The company has logged more than a million hours of serving paying clients with its ASRs that provide unsleeping vigilance in offices, parking lots and sidewalks around buildings. The security robots can provide a host of smart tech solutions for clients, ranging from live stream video of situations the ASRs encounter shown from 360 degrees of camera angles to recognizing and monitoring data communications transmissions for anticipated concerns.

The robots’ heat and thermal energy sensors have proven useful in detecting potential fire starts and have been touted as being able to scan arriving visitors for fevers that might indicate concern during the ongoing pandemic.

“For some of our customers, the security team takes a guarded approach (pardon the pun!) to sharing information and prefers to keep their tools, tactics, etc., out of the public eye, which is completely understandable given their mission,” one company blog states (https://ibn.fm/gGz9O).

“Of course, there are reasons for that,” the blog continues. “If a robot was only capturing video all day long, it might be difficult to try to identify bad behavior, so not so worrisome for a criminal. On the other hand, if a robot with the exact same outward appearance in the same location also has the capability to detect the face of that criminal (that was previously blacklisted by the client) and can tell that their phone has been at this location 5 times in the past 5 days after midnight matching the same blacklisted license plate, now the security team’s odds of catching this criminal go up significantly. … CRIMINALS BEWARE: it is safe to assume that the security robot you are looking at has a ton of sensors on it, a good amount of artificial intelligence and is getting smarter over time.”

Through it all, the robots are designed to be non-threatening physically, and perhaps even friendly. Clients have often made naming their ASRs a part of their unveiling ceremonies to give them a more personalized, coworker feel.

For any company, finding the right employee to fit the office’s culture and team personality can be almost as important as determining a job candidate’s skill levels.

“Hiring the right team member will have tremendous impact on driving successful initiatives, creating team harmony and elevating the status of your function. A poor match, however, can decrease the team’s productivity and even worse, erode both the trust and confidence your organization has in you and your team,” Kristine Raad, Owens Corning’s director of Global Security, stated in a recent Security magazine interview (https://ibn.fm/FjCbl).

The magazine noted that a bad hire can cost the organization up to 30 percent of the employee’s first-year earnings, or upwards of $240,000 depending on the position.

Knightscope’s creative team developed a human resources and recruitment type of model to showcase the capabilities and attributes of its outdoor-roving model in the form of a CV that even includes the robots’ hobbies — providing evidence for prosecuting criminals, deterring vagrancy, preventing vehicle break-ins and working the full-time equivalent of 4.2 employees.

“And it does so all while taking the occasional time-out with an adoring fans for a quick robot selfie,” the company notes (https://ibn.fm/FFdbN).
