The latest surveillance robot is designed to patrol rough terrain (and fight crime)

 

Knightscope, the robot security company famous for the R2-D2-like machine that recently drowned itself in a mall’s pool, has just unveiled an off-roading robot. 

The Silicon Valley company calls this model the K7. With its four wheels and high clearance, the K7 — which measures in at more than five feet tall and nearly seven feet long — is intended for diverse terrain and uneven topography. It’s a machine customers can deploy in varied outdoor environments.

Like Knightscope’s earlier models, the K7 is fitted with sound, video, and other sensors. The robot will be rented out to places like malls, stores, and movie sets to deter crime or generally shady behavior. The company currently has 44 machines contracted out to 32 clients in eight different states. They hope to increase this to 100 machines by the end of 2017. Read more…
