Introducing the ultimate crime-stopper, 'Knightscope K5.' Your favorite crime fighting robot comics are coming to life through a robot that can smell, feel and tirelessly patrol your neighborhood. With the power of technology, a crime-stopping robot could have the potential to make communities stronger and safer by working together.

Created by Knightscope, this company is working to bring the world technology that will predict and prevent crime with a combination of hardware, software and social engagement. Knightscope K5 uses a combination of autonomous robots and predictive analytics to provide a commanding and physical presence while gathering important data in real-time and on-site.

It has numerous sensors, and when an alert is pushed, the machine will turn on all of these sensors to allow an entire community to review and contribute information in real time.
