Robotic Assistance Devices ships mobile security units
ROAMEO units — over 6'6 tall and over 700 lbs — are built in Kitchener, Ont.
Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices is shipping its first ROAMEO mobile security and concierge robot.
According to the company, the first production unit ROAMEO will be delivered to a Fortune 500 client that was an early adopter of the RAD’s concept of Autonomous Remote Services. This client received its first SCOT unit in May 2018 and has since deployed additional SCOT and Wally units at several facilities across the U.S.
“This is a monumental moment for RAD, our entire team, our investors and supporters,” said Steve Reinharz, founder and president of RAD, in a statement. “The foundation of our company was built upon delivering what ROAMEO is capable of performing for our clients and end-users, and it thrills us to be delivering on this promise.”
ROAMEO, designed and produced by AITX’s majority owned subsidiary RAD-M, is a mobile robot that is over 6’6” tall and weighs over 700 lbs. According to the company, ROAMEO is designed to autonomously patrol a property or periphery and survey its surroundings, conducting routine patrols, recording and reporting back to the central command centre. The AI-analytics and backend systems utilized by ROAMEO are those developed by RAD. The mobile units are built at a facility in Kitchener, Ont.
