Robot similar to RoboCop meant to keep an eye on things

  • It's hard to not compare the K5 Autonomous Data Machine to RoboCop since it is an electronic security guard, weighing 300 pounds. "We founded Knightscppe after what happened at Sandy Hook," co-founder William Santana Li said. "You are never going to have an armed officer in every school."

    The robot is equipped with several kinds of sensors such as a video camera, thermal sensors and microphone. There are already some privacy concerns since the data collected through its sensors are used to alert people of concerns. "This is the kind of pervasive surveillance that has put people on edge," a privacy advocate said.
