Surveillance Mode did several things:
- KITT could detect people and vehicles and track their movements and discern proximity.
- KITT could gather structural schematics of buildings, vehicles, or other devices and help Michael avoid potential danger when he was snooping.
- KITT could also monitor radio transmissions and telephone communications within a location and trace those calls.
- KITT could tap into computer systems to monitor, or upload and download information as long as he could break the access codes.
First used in "Deadly Maneuvers". In "Just My Bill" Michael turned the nob manually to increase the effectiveness of Surveillance Mode. This is also the first time we see it as part of the dashboard
