From sports arenas to shopping plaza's a new kind of crime fighting robot is rolling along. But should this make you feel safter? We take a look at Knightscope a new company hoping to tackle what they call "America's trillion dollar problem" with crime.
"Knightscope was originally founded in response to the tragic events at Sandy Hook and the Boston Marathon," its founders explain.
Today, Knightscope’s crime fighting robots, dubbed "Autonomous Data Machines" are available for order now in major markets across all 50 United States.
Knightscope says it's robots provide a commanding–but friendly–physical security presenc, offering up 24/7 protection for peopleand property.
Some recent cases include: assisting law enforcement in issuing an arrest warrant for a sexual predator, helping a security guard nab a shop lifter and helping a major corporation in tracking down a vandal.
Perhaps as Uber helped people of color to get a cab in places like Washington, DC...these crime fighting robots can help stop the violence that we have been seeing in the #BlackLivesMatter cases like the John Crawford III shooting in Wal-Mart.
If you happen to be in the Volunteer State there are several opportunities to check the Knightscope robot out in person. See details below:
