The company will bring the Knightscope experience to the figurative doorstep of prospective clients and communities so that they can interact with the machines in person while participating in a live virtual meeting with team experts. The nationwide Roadshow will spotlight a unique, futuristic “pod” housing one of each of Knightscope’s Autonomous Security Robots (ASRs) and will include a hybrid storefront equipped to exhibit the fully operational robots, docking station and the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC) user interface.

“We are delighted to showcase Knightscope’s autonomous security robots across the country,” said Knightscope chairman and CEO, William Santana Li. “Connecting with our communities will be instrumental in expanding our national footprint and furthering our mission of making the United States the safest country in the world.”
