AITX Announces Robotic Security and Inspection
Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (OTCPK:AITX), along with its wholly owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD) today announced revisions to its plans and positioning for a robotic dog for the security services, logistics, utilities, and property management industries.
"We’re seeing a larger and more cost-conscious market emerge for a RAD dog," said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. "These market conditions have prompted our team to revise plans and develop a new dog, one that we are naming ‘CASSIE’. We are now going to bring an entry-level priced ‘junkyard dog’ to market, loaded with all the AI power that RAD has developed over the years."
CASSIE™ (Crawling Autonomous Safety Security Inspection Equipment) is the latest officially announced addition to the RAD family of robotic security and safety solutions and marks the Company’s second mobile robot. CASSIE, being developed by AITX’s wholly owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices, Mobile (RAD-M), will be produced in the US at the Company’s manufacturing facility in Detroit.
According to report by Allied Market Research, the global security and inspection robots market generated $940 million in 2020 and is expected to reach close to $14 billion by 2030. "The industries that we serve are now very hungry and enthusiastic for an affordable mobile RAD solution," said Mark Folmer, President of RAD. "Just imagine a RAD ROSA being able to autonomously dispatch a quick-running, agile robot dog. Trespassers and intruders won’t stand a chance."
Reinharz continued, "We are leveraging the substantial investments made in RAD’s proprietary autonomy technology developed over the course of the ROAMEO project and can now apply this to a much lower cost solution. CASSIE’s internal processing will be driven by RADPack Mini, just like what we’ve done with ROSA 3.0 and AVA 3.0."
Further details, specifications, pricing, and availability for CASSIE will be announced over the coming months.
AITX has filed for uplisting to the OTCQB. Future announcements will be made regarding the status of the OTCQB application.
