RAD AVA Safeguards Remote Gas and Oil Properties

RAD says that its latest solution utilizes technologies from its AVA and RIO product lines to deliver secure remote access control capabilities powered by solar.

DETROIT—Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD), a subsidiary of Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., has announced it received the first order for a solar-powered AVA autonomous access control device.

The company states the end user is in the Oil & Gas industry and seeks to automate ingress and egress to remote areas to reduce manned guard service expense.

“This is the first such solution of its kind that I’m aware of and the result of our Company constantly seeking to say, ‘yes’ to client solution requests,” comments Steve Reinharz, CEO/CTO of AITX and RAD.

According to the company, the opportunity came through one of its largest channel partners, and it boasts the sale continues RAD’s penetration and acceptance in the Oil & Gas industry.

RAD AVA Promotes Safety and Security

The Mich.-based technology company explains that within the Oil & Gas industry securing access to remote sites is essential for ensuring safety and protecting valuable assets. Traditionally RAD  points out, manned security guards have been deployed in these remote locations to manage access control. However, staffing personnel in such isolated areas presents significant challenges. RAD notes that remote sites lack basic infrastructure and amenities, making it difficult to sustain a continuous manned guarding presence. Moreover, the company stresses, the logistics of transporting and accommodating security personnel in these environments can be both costly and risky. To address these challenges, there’s a growing trend towards deploying innovative access control solutions, such as RAD’s Solar AVA. These devices RAD asserts, offer a cost-effective and efficient alternative to traditional manned guarding services, enhancing security while minimizing the risks and expenses associated with staffing personnel in remote oil and gas operations.

RAD explains the Solar AVA system merges the technology from its RIO line of solar-powered security towers. This integration represents a significant advancement, combining the intelligence and functionality of AVA with the reliable and portable energy solution of solar power. By leveraging the established success of RAD’s solar-powered infrastructure, Solar AVA offers enhanced versatility and efficiency, catering to a broader range of access control and security applications.

“The potential for RAD’s security and access control solutions in the Oil & Gas industry is immense,” adds Reinharz. “We look forward to supporting and expanding our presence with these new clients as we do in all market sectors.”
