K.I.T.T's Functions and Abilities
K.I.T.T's interior is filled with as many gadgets and tools as is built into his exterior, if not more. Below is an abridged list.
Ultraphonic Chemical Analyzer
K.I.T.T has a retractable tray with an electron scanner that can analyze the chemical properties of various materials. It can even read ballistic information off bullets and compare these with a police database. Aside from the scanning tray, the system can also analyze chemical information gathered from KITT's exterior sensors.
KITT's Alpha Circuit is part of his main control system which allows his CPU Core to drive himself.
You always get into so much trouble when you drive yourself. I might have to disable that function. - Pierce
K.I.T.T can release oxygen into his driver compartment and provide air to passengers if he is ever submerged in water or buried in earth. This can also be used to overcome the effects of certain drugs.
K.I.T.T's Voice Synthesizer allows his CPU Core to speak and communicate. With it, K.I.T.T can also simulate other sounds. K.I.T.T's primary spoken language is English, however he now knows twelve different languages and can speak them all fluently.
I modeled his voice after Kevin's, our Head Custodian. K.I.T.T can also mimic other voices he's heard, though those may not be as believable. Kevin sat and talked to K.I.T.T for hours in the beginning, so K.I.T.T could learn all of the nuances of his voice. This was done so that K.I.T.T can emulate emotion and feeling in his voice, which makes it easier for his Driver to interact with him. - Pierce
My current known languages are: English, Spanish, Italian, French, Russian, Portuguese, Polish, Chinese, Korean, German, Japanese, and Finnish. On a side note, I also know American Sign Language. By displaying the signs on my hood or windshield, I can speak with Diana, the Head of Forensics. - K.I.T.T
You could just display text to her, you know. - Pierce
Diana appreciates my efforts. - K.I.T.T
K.I.T.T can "smell" via an atmospheric sampling device mounted in his dash. There is also one in the front bumper. This feature allows K.I.T.T detect harmful substances in the air, or even explosives up to a few yards away.
I've upgraded the sensor to pick up pheromones as well. - Pierce
Why would you do that? - K.I.T.T
Because, I'm evil. - Pierce
What did Kat ever do to you? - K.I.T.T
Voice Stress Analyzer
K.I.T.T can process spoken voices and determine if someone may be lying or concealing information.
