Knightscope, Inc., a developer of autonomous security robots (ASRs) and blue light emergency communication systems, has announced that it received three new purchase orders for its K1 emergency communication systems and has deployed another K5 ASR at a healthcare facility in Ohio.
According to the company, a public tribal land-grant community college in New Mexico purchased eight K1 Blue Light Towers (K1 BLT) with solar power and public address capabilities, while VIA Metro Transit of San Antonio, Texas, ordered one K1 BLT and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is buying six K1 Retrofit Kits through TS&L, a Knightscope authorized partner in Florida.
In addition to these new sales, an existing Ohio based healthcare client – a pharmaceutical’s global manufacturer and distributor of medical and laboratory products and provider of performance and data solutions for healthcare – expanded its contract earlier this year and deployed a K5 ASR at its second location to offer a layer of perimeter protection in the parking lot around its facility.
Knightscope is an advanced security technology company based in Silicon Valley that builds fully autonomous security robots that deter, detect and report. Knightscope says its long-term ambition is to make the US the safest country in the world.
