September 1, 2022

Knightscope, which develops advanced physical security technologies, has announced its Automatic Criminal Detection Capability (ACDC) feature, a real-time and extensive criminal data intelligence solution. The feature is now available to new and existing clients that subscribe to the company’s K1 Tower and future K1 Hemisphere system, which is set to be released in Q4 2022.

ACDC uses facial recognition on K1 autonomous security robots and a legal open-source database of more than 75 million criminal law enforcement files to detect and alert users to a person previously convicted of a crime or possible threats on their property, Knightscope said.

The company said intelligence gathered through ACDC will help public safety officials better prepare for threats by delivering real-time, hyper-local information for improved situational awareness. Clients can assemble the data during incident investigations through the included Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC) user interface, or by engaging the Knightscope+ monitoring professionals should they elect such coverage.

“Knightscope is continually evaluating ways in which we can deter, detect and report potential criminal activity,” said William Santana Li, chairman and CEO of Knightscope. “Imagine if we were to assist one port in identifying a known terrorist or help warn officials of a sexual predator on your child’s school campus – this is truly a game changer in protecting the places we live, work, study, and visit. We need to provide our nation’s 2+ million law enforcement and security professionals actual tools for them to be able to do their jobs effectively to keep our communities safe.”
