'Robocop' Era Hath Begun: 6' Tall 400lb Robots To Police Malls In NY, Massachusetts; 16 Cities Signed On

Meet the 400-pound robots that will soon patrol parking lots, offices, and malls

The K5 is a 400-pound, 6-foot tall autonomous security robot that roves parking lot aisles, the hallways of office campuses, sports stadium foyers, and shopping malls on the prowl for suspicious activity. Looking something like a mix between a Dalek from Doctor Who and Eve from Wall-E, it packs sensors like a LIDAR (light detection and ranging) array and cameras that help it differentiate between a harmless passerby and potential criminal, and it feeds all that data to the cloud.


The company’s secret sauce is sensors. Lots of them. Knightscope’s robots pack infrared cameras sharp enough to make out license plates, and onboard wireless that identifies smartphones down to the MAC and IP addresses. On the backend, Knightscope can blacklist individual phones, faces, or even cars.

Knightscope sees potential for its robots just about everywhere. It counts Microsoft, Juniper Networks, the Sacramento Kings, and NBC Universal among its current clients.

2nd article [source]: Knightscope, which specializes in fully autonomous security data machines, says it is officially signed up to patrol malls in New York and Massachusetts, with nearly two dozen accounts set up across 16 cities this year. -- “We’re starting off in the public arena, so we are allowing them to patrol places like shopping centers, corporate campuses, professional sporting arenas and movie studios. Once the [robots] prove that what we are saying they are doing is actually happening, then you go to a mayor and say, ‘hey, we are actually able to reduce crime,’ and they are going to buy into this very, very, quickly,” Stacy Dean Stephens, co-founder and VP of marketing and sales, tell FOX Business.

re: 'very, very, quickly'

...is how fast this is going to catch on, and spread everywhere, according to the co-founder and VP of the new 'Knightscope' robocops - that instantaneously scan and ID anything and everything, including your cell phone...and what about those new rfid-chip credit cards...and log it all and store it up in 'the cloud'. And how long before they decide to 'arm' this new robocop police force (1yr., 2yrs., 3 yrs?), maybe humanize their appearance, and/or maybe make them in different sizes - like xl or xxl? 10' tall humanoid robocops out on the city streets? Robocop co-founder lady is already talking about meeting up with 'mayors' [last paragraph above].

Sounds like Blue-Zone Planned-opolis stuff; see: Planned-opolis.

Robocop era has officially begun. Where you are soon perhaps. Know about it.
