These advanced Security Robots are to be manufactured by Knightscope, a Silicon Valley-led company, in order to make the complex safer for its inhabitants.
Each robot is addressed by a unique nickname, and the one allocated around the Liberty Village is called Westy. This particular model is a K5, conical, and bulky structured robot, which proposes an artificial intelligence-powered design concept.
The robot is sized up to five feet tall. Westy navigates and strolls around the area at a human walking pace with an integrated system comprising of four internal cameras installed for capturing a constant 360-degree view.
