The 'suicidal robot' that drowned in a fountain didn't kill itself after allA security robot called Steve did not commit suicide by falling into a fountain in Washington DC, but due to a tragic accident. After retrieving data from Steve the roboguard’s black box discovered that the accident was caused not by suicide but by skidding on a “loose brick surface”, according to the machine’s manufacturer, Knightscope. A technical error led to the K5 robot’s demise when an algorithm did not detect the uneven surface, leading to Steve tumbling into the fountain and drowning.
