Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions Inc., a global provider of AI-driven security and productivity solutions along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices Inc. (RAD), announced that it is in preparation to ship an order of 10 ROSA security devices to a major urban East Coast University. This multiple ROSA deployment will also see the implementation of RAD Light My Way, providing the students and university staff with an additional layer of safety and security as they move about the campus.

This major deal marks a game-changer for campus safety, as the tech-savvy school aims to replace outdated call boxes with ROSA’s cutting-edge AI and security capabilities. Equipped with RAD’s innovative RAD Light My Way system, the ROSA units will also allow students and staff to instantly summon powerful deterrence and emergency assistance.

Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD, expressed that the deployment of RAD’s security devices and solutions is an essential step in updating obsolete security measures. The robots will be positioned in busy areas on the campus, replacing old call boxes and enhancing the safety measures currently in place.

The university’s decision to implement these AI-driven security solutions reflects the ongoing trend of using advanced technology to combat campus crime. According to findings published in June 2022 from the School Survey on Crime and Safety, postsecondary education campuses experienced a total of 27,300 crimes during the 2019-2020 period. The reported crimes amounted to approximately 19 incidents per 10,000 full-time students. Among these reported offenses, forcible sex offenses accounted for 43 percent, burglaries for 33 percent, and motor vehicle thefts for 11 percent.

AITX confirmed that one of RAD’s largest dealers has received the purchase order from the university. The names of the university and dealer are expected to be announced in the future.

“This marks another highly visible deployment of RAD Light My Way,” said Reinharz. “The ROSA devices will be positioned in busy locations throughout the campus replacing obsolete and ineffective call boxes. Like so many other colleges and universities, this school has experienced an increase in crime, and a sharp decline of student confidence in the safety measures that are in place.”

“We welcomed a large contingent of the university’s administrative and security staff to the REX a few months ago,” said Mark Folmer, CPP, PSP, FSyI, president of RAD. “They were so impressed with RAD Light My Way and how easy it is to use. We are looking forward to having much of the school enrolled in RAD Light My Way soon. Collectively, we expect this and the deployment of the ROSAs to be welcomed throughout the campus.”

AITX stated that all units are expected to be shipped and deployed within the next 2 weeks.The company anticipates receiving permission from its largest RAD Light My Way user, an East Coast regional hospital group, to be named and provide testimonials on its application and use in the near future.
