MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Knightscope, Inc., a developer of advanced physical security technologies utilizing fully autonomous robots focused on enhancing U.S. security operations, announced today that it has created and deployed numerous COVID-19 Public Safety Announcements across its fleet of Autonomous Security Robots (ASRs). Knightscope’s clients are effectively all considered “essential services” (law enforcement agencies, hospitals, security teams, etc.), so the Company has been hard at work keeping all of its machines-in-network operating across the country – even during the pandemic. The robots have been working tirelessly 24/7 without interruption since they are immune and not subject to any shelter-in-place orders.
“We are pleased to announce that our COVID-19 Public Safety Broadcast Announcements feature is now live and deployed in production,” said William Santana Li, chairman and CEO at Knightscope. “We offered this as a free upgrade to all Knightscope clients as part of our Machine-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscription offering. The majority of our clients were excited to activate the feature, with many even asking for their own custom messages tailored to their respective facilities.”
The over-the-air free upgrade includes the following broadcast messages that can be announced by our K1 Stationary, K3 Indoor, or K5 Outdoor Autonomous Security Robots (ASRs):
- “Please maintain a safe distance between you and other people - I recommend at least 6 feet.”
- “Thanks for joining me for a breath of fresh air. We don't have to remain indoors, but let's avoid being in close contact with other humans.”
- “Be sure to wipe down any surfaces you come into contact with. Please disinfect your hands with an alcohol-based sanitizer and avoid touching your face.”
- “Washing our hands is fun! Oh, wait.... I don't have any hands.”
- “If you are feeling ill, please refrain from entering this facility. Instead, please push the button on my head to speak with a human.”
- “Please refrain from physical contact, including shaking hands.”
- “Social distancing is in practice and required here.”
These announcements can be made when a person is detected, randomly, by time, by location or issued manually by a law enforcement officer or security professional utilizing our state-of-the-art user interface, the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC).
