Knightscope Announces New Contracts for Knightscope K5 Autonomous Security Robot


Knightscope, Inc, a developer of autonomous security robots and blue light emergency communication systems, announced two new contracts from a Los Angeles area shopping center and a medical clinic.

The company says the Knightscope K5 Autonomous Security Robot (“ASR”) will be patrolling the interior of a large, cultural mall in the Los Angeles area as part of the first contract. Knightscope says shopping centers are places where people go to shop, dine, relax, browse or meet in a fun and safe atmosphere. Providing a safe environment reduces vacancies, mitigates risk, elevates property values and increases foot traffic. Knightscope claims its ASRs have already successfully deterred substance abuse, vehicle break-ins, trespassing/loitering, vandalism, theft and assaults from commercial properties, keeping tenants and visitors safer.

The second contract is for a K1 Hemisphere to be used at a pediatric healthcare clinic in Torrance, California. Clinics for children must include a safe, comfortable experience for the entire family, from unique amenities – like Knightscope ASRs – to child-sized equipment, all focused on creating a trusted destination to care for California’s youth.
