Knightscope unveil their K7 robot

Knightscope have revealed their brand new K7 robot, which is able to travel over rough terrain.

The robot maker have developed a new robot that is able to deal with life's challenges after one of their other robots famous fell into a pond. The new robot is able to transmitting audio and video as well as sensor data.

William Santana Li, Knightscope chairman and CEO, said: "We're developing technology in the long run to be able to predict and prevent crime. Crime has one trillion dollar negative economic impact on the United States every year. It's a hidden tax we all pay in blood, tears, and treasure. And our long-term ambition is to literally be able to make the United States the safest country in the world, changing everything for everyone."

The team are now working to see how their new robots can support their clients and they are also ensuring their security practices are up to scratch to protect their clients.

He added to The Register: "We have a lot of highly sensitive organizations that are incoming clients that have massive amounts of requirements for us to meet ...

"We're bolstering our cyber security practices, so everything is encrypted. We hire white hat hackers who try to break stuff. And now we're engaging a firm to do that continuously, as opposed to once a year."

And William promises these new robots are "just the beginning".

He said: "Knightscope continues to build the foundation for delivering on our vision of making the United States of America the safest country in the world, changing everything for everyone. The four initial technology platforms are just the beginning."
