Machine 'hot-swaps' began earlier this year following the engineering release of the fully redesigned K5 ASR. This all-new security robot is faster to build, improves quality, and is easier to service. When paired with Knightscope's recently announced Risk & Threat Exposure ("RTX") enhancement to its Machine-as-a-Service business model, the Company is able to elevate the delivery of public safety tools to its clients. As a result, on-site performance and reliability are strengthened, which raises client value and satisfaction.
