The K5v5 is a ground up design that draws from over 2.5 million hours of field operations with real clients leveraging the technology for real results. Among the improvements are:

  • a wider stance that creates a more planted propulsion system
  • raised camera elevation for near eye-level, 4K video capture
  • all new battery architecture for improved performance
  • audio enhancements for broadcast messages, intercom and public address
  • additional lighting for greater nighttime visibility
  • significant reduction in part count and assembly time
  • designed for easier service and maintenance

The K5v5 is Knightscope’s flagship ASR and is capable of both indoor and outdoor deployments. For the past 8.5 years, the K5 has successfully autonomously navigated parking lots, parking structures, corporate campuses, schools, hospitals, transportation hubs, casinos, malls, warehouses and many other locations across the United States, reducing crime and keeping people safe at the places they live, work, study and visit. The next generation K5 will build on that experience and continue to be a driving force in the Company’s mission to make the U.S. the safest country in the world.
