RIO takes RAD’s ROSA to new heights and In New markets
Detroit, Michigan, Aug. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (OTCPK:AITX), today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD) has introduced RIO™, a solar-powered portable security solution. RIO is the company’s first product announced for a broader market sector, positioning RAD solutions outside of the traditional human security industry.
RIO (ROSA Iindependent Observatory) continues production of RAD’s best-selling and multi-award-winning security robot, known as ROSA. RIO consists of a single ROSA 3.1 unit mounted on a portable solar-powered trailer, with the option of adding a second ROSA unit.
The company ran a pre-order program for RIO through its reseller network and to select end users. This pre-order program will continue through mid-September and RAD expects to report pre-order activity in the coming weeks.
“RIO is probably our most exciting product announcement to date,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “Over the years, and at the cost of millions of dollars in R&D and engineering, RAD has developed a multitude of proprietary technologies. This RAD technology is now being directed to new markets, which until today have been content with legacy solutions from a multitude of vendors, who have assembled basic components, delivering mediocre performance and even lower returns on investment. . RIO is poised to be a game changer for big box retailers, construction sites, hospital campuses, entertainment venues and many other vertical markets,” added Reinharz.
RIO was designed with portability and round-the-clock performance in mind. At its base is a rugged portable trailer positioning the unit’s two solar panels and housing the device’s high-performance batteries and control systems. . RIO’s retractable mast extends nearly 20′ where a single ROSA is mounted, providing an ideal 180° field of view. To make a 360° field of vision, a ROSA-Expander unit is also available.
“The RAD dealer chain is excited about RIO,” said Mark Folmer, President of RAD. “RIO gives RAD dealers a lower cost, higher margin, higher volume solution to offer their customers. We’ve privately showcased RIO to our retailer network and garnered tremendous interest, and are actively booking pre-orders. We expect the response from the security industry to be even greater when we officially introduce RIO to GSX in two weeks. RAD will be exhibiting in booth #1650 at GSX in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center, September 12e until 14e.
“If RIO captures only a modest market share of the existing and significant solar-powered security trailer business, it could quickly propel RAD’s monthly recurring revenue figures into another new orbit. RIO is the solution that can get us there,” concluded Reinharz.
RAD offers several RIO monitoring options, including monitoring services provided by RAD resellers, third-party remote monitoring service providers, as well as RAD’s proprietary RADSoC™ cloud-based application, with desktop and mobile monitoring options. RIO, like all other RAD security robot solutions, is cellular optimized for robust, near-Wi-Fi quality connectivity, with cellular service included with the device’s subscription service.
