Detroit, Michigan, Feb. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions for enterprise clients, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD) has updates related to progress within the Healthcare vertical.
The Company has completed the physical installation of ROSA-P units at an acute care facility with over 100 beds, marking the Company’s largest hospital deployment to date. This end-user is a large regional hospital group that is part of a healthcare group with over 600 locations. The deployment at this single location includes 4 ROSA-P configurations, each with dual ROSA units, plus one solo ROSA, effectively totaling 9 ROSAs. One of RAD’s largest dealers facilitated this deployment, which has significant visibility within the dealer and the healthcare provider.
This deployment is the inaugural large-scale RAD Light My Way deployment. Notably, the hospital staff was given a choice of an additional armed guard or ROSAs with RAD Light My Way, and they overwhelmingly chose RAD Light My Way. Additional details about this deployment are forthcoming within the next few weeks following completion of deployment and client acceptance.
“The Healthcare vertical is one of the inspirations for several of our inventions, and RAD Light My Way was conceived after listening to the needs of this industry,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “Staff members have shared with me that they often feel vulnerable walking to and from their cars at night. RAD Light My Way will provide them with much-needed peace of mind, while the ROSA-P units feed real-time details of the conditions to security personnel who are monitoring the area as well as instant at-the-edge response.”
According to recent FBI data, parking lots are the third most common place for assaults, abductions, and homicides. 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 healthcare workers occurred in parking and adjacent areas.
“In addition to the hospital network referred to in this press release, we are potentially bringing six additional healthcare networks with over 500,000 employees and over 3,000 facilities through the sales process,” said Mark Folmer, President of RAD. “Next week, we roll out the first deployment for an even bigger healthcare client who is starting with several ROSAs. It’s feasible that RAD could deploy upwards of 150 devices specifically at healthcare clients within the next 12 months.”
ROSA is a multiple award-winning, compact, self-contained, portable, security and communication solution that can be deployed in about 15 minutes. Like other RAD solutions, it only requires power as it includes all necessary communications hardware. ROSA’s AI-driven security analytics include human, firearm, vehicle detection, license plate recognition, responsive digital signage and audio messaging, and complete integration with RAD’s software suite notification and autonomous response library. Two-way communication is optimized for cellular, including live video from ROSA’s dual high-resolution, full-color, always-on cameras. RAD has published two Case Studies detailing how ROSA has helped eliminate instances of theft, trespassing and loitering at car rental locations and construction sites across the country.
RAD Light My Way has been the recipient of two Secure Campus 2022 Awards from Campus Security & Life Safety Magazine. In October 2021 RAD Light My Way along with RAD’s ROSA won CBRE’s 2021 Best Workplace Experience Solution Award.
