Crime Fighting Flagship Gets a Ground Up Redesign and Approval for Production Release

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., December 13, 2023 — Knightscope, Inc. [Nasdaq: KSCP] (“Knightscope” or the “Company”), a leading developer of autonomous security robots and blue light emergency communication systems, today announces the release of the 5th Generation K5 (“K5v5”) Autonomous Security Robot (“ASR”). K5v5 production has commenced in Silicon Valley at Knightscope’s Headquarters (Made in America) and machines are beginning to ship to a variety of clients awaiting fulfillment of their contracts across the country.

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.
