RAD Receives 2 Prestigious AST ASTORS Awards for ROSA180

Henderson Nevada, November 18, 2021 — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (OTCPK:AITX), today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices Inc. (RAD) has been named a winner of the 2021 AST ‘ASTORS’ Award for its innovative and popular stationary security robot ROSA (Responsive Observation Security Agent). RAD’s ROSA won in the categories of Best Robotic Perimeter Protection and Best Motion Detection Solution.

Thousands of government, security industry, and public safety professionals convened in New York City yesterday to meet with experts from hundreds of industry-leading innovators including representatives from Robotic Assistance Devices, at the Northeast’s largest physical and IT security trade show to preview the latest in security technologies.

The annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program honors distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end users in a variety of government, homeland security and public safety vertical markets. The most cutting edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming into the market today that ensure safety for citizens are highlighted.

“This AST ASTORS award is RAD’s and ROSA’s second significant award in as many weeks,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “We’re so grateful to American Security Today for recognizing the power and performance that’s packed into ROSA’s small form-factor. The industry is starting to take notice of what RAD has accomplished, our customers are too.”

RAD President and COO Mark Folmer was in New York City to accept the award on behalf of the company. “It’s an honor to represent RAD and receive this ASTORS Award in front of so many illustrious security and law enforcement professionals, many of whom are either RAD clients, or future clients. It’s inevitable that the security industry will continue this transition to implementing autonomous security devices, and ROSA is just the tip of the iceberg for what’s to come from RAD,” Folmer commented.

Two-way communication is optimized for cellular, including live video from ROSA’s dual high-resolution, full-color, always-on cameras.
