Microsoft Enlists K5 Robots For Security Reasons

ms k5We did talk about the K5 sentry robots from Knightscope not too long ago, and it seems that Microsoft, the second most valuable company in the world, intends to enlist the help of the K5 sentry robots to increase the amount of security on their campus. The K5 sentry robots will come equipped with alarms, High Definition sensors, microphones, heat detectors and cameras that will work in tandem with one another, keeping track of human behavior in the vicinity. It is hoped that this will help folks remain honest in a far less threatening environment.

After all, when someone is watching you, you tend to be a whole lot more conscious about what you say and do (and don’t do, too, of course). Apart from that, the K5 sentry robots will arrive standard with GPS, speakers, Wi-Fi and weather sensors. Should they start to figure out if “trouble” is brewing, they will send a signal back to the command post. The command post would then allow the people in the relevant department (security officers, for example) to monitor and respond to the activity accordingly.

Would you feel a whole lot safer with the presence of robot sentries in the future, or would you still want a policeman or security guard to get the job done?
