Forget humans, the Knightscope K7 is a fully autonomous, four-wheeled security robot that weighs in at 770 lbs. It’s designed for multi-terrain applications and is most practical for use in airports, prisons, power substations, and solar / wind farms. This robot boasts holonomic steering which means it can move like a “crab” rotating or moving side to side. It uses LiDAR, sonar, GPS, thermal imaging, license plate recognition, and people detection to ensure it always stays on course. Read more for another video, additional pictures and information.
“The illuminated and independent four-wheel system of the vehicle allows for the security robot’s tires to rotate inward, allowing for a wide range of lateral movement. Knightscope is one of the few companies leading the charge for security and crime-free AI applications — and with the introduction of the K7, they’ve brought us one step closer to an enlightened future,” reports Hi Consumption.
