We’re definitely heading toward a brilliant future with the menagerie of technological advancements that mankind has made over the past couple of years, and with AI becoming a heavily influential contender in a variety of markets around the world, it was only a matter of time until sci-fi’s vision of security-style robots became a reality. The engineers at Knightscope are diving into the realm of tech dominance head-first with their newest autonomous security vehicle, the K7.
Although the K7 is still in development, the all-terrain adaptable robot was conceptualized to offer a range of workforce solutions for clients in prison, farm, substation, and airport applications. A height of nearly 58 inches, a width of 64 inches, and an overall weight of 770 pounds ensure that the K7 is no slouch in the size department — with a design orientation that’s made to be as intimidating as it is purposeful. 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 (or, to complete and utter dominion over mankind, depending on how you feel about AI security technology).
