Next generation security monitoring on display at @iKnightscope in New York City.
These R2-D2 lookalikes move around interior and exterior spaces to help keep people and places safe. They are in use in several cities around world.
I had the opportunity to meet these little guys during yesterday’s first ever New York Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and AI tech Meetup.
The meeting was held at the Knightscope showroom at 501 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan where I had a discussion with a Knightscope representative about cloud, edge and fog computing. These robots leverage Amazon’s cloud.
The Knightscope showroom is a haven for selfie takers and for anyone interested in seeing how robots are being used in the security space today. I saw many people stop in front of the showroom to watch in amazement as these smart robots moved around and interacted with people inside and outside the store.
Knightscope has many opportunities to position in the robotics and security spaces. The company has an incredibly fun and extremely timely industry 4.0 story to tell. – Russ DeVeau
