Detroit, Michigan, August 31, 2022 — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (OTCPK:AITX), today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD) has received an order for seventeen ROSA security robots through one of the Company’s largest dealers. The end-user for this security deployment is a large regional hospital group that is part of a health group with over 600 locations.
The Company expects this user will be revealed within the next few months.
Sixteen ROSA units specified for this deployment will be configured as ROSA-P devices. ROSA-P is a new member of the ROSA lineup that uses existing light poles as its primary power source whether or not the light is centrally controlled. ROSA-P receives power from the pole during night-time hours when the fixture is active. When daylight comes the unit then switches to auxiliary power via its internal battery to ensure 24/7 coverage of the secured area.
All ROSA systems will be deployed throughout the facility’s largest parking lots and have been pre-configured for use with the RAD Light My Way platform.
Parking lots are the third most common place for assaults, abductions, and homicides, according to recent FBI data. A survey by the International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety group found that nearly 70% of armed robberies and 56% of rape incidents of health care workers occurred in parking and adjacent areas.
“This is the ideal deployment for ROSA-P and showcases the RAD Light My Way platform as an affordable solution providing a safe environment for our healthcare heroes,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “RAD Light My Way was conceived when visiting another healthcare facility and speaking with the administration team. The nursing staff felt very uncomfortable walking to and from their cars alone at night.”
“With the deployment of RAD Light My Way and ROSA, we intend to make an impact on the instances of assault and other dangerous crimes that often occur in unmanned parking lots,” Reinharz added. “Legacy solutions like Blue Light emergency phones paved the way for parking lot safety but unfortunately don’t provide the level of response time or crime deterrent that is required in this day and age. Our students, staff and employees deserve solutions that do more, the solution must be proactive not reactive. ROSA-P and RAD Light My Way are built with this goal in mind.”
In an effort to further improve on its RAD Light My Way platform the Company is requesting input from students, faculty members and healthcare staff regarding their experiences with parking lot safety as well as input on how the Company can further improve comfort and security via its existing solutions.
