ROSA Devices from RAD Improve Campus Security
RAD says that is ROSA security product is a compact and easy-to-install solution that employs A.I. technologies to help protect college campuses.
DETROIT—Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., a global developer of AI-driven security and productivity solutions along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), have announced they are preparing to ship an order of 10 ROSA security devices to a major urban East Coast University.
According to the company, this multiple ROSA deployment will also see the implementation of RAD Light My Way that will provide the students and university staff with an addition layer of safety and security as they move about the campus.
The CEO of AITX and RAD Steve Reinharz says 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.
“This marks another highly visible deployment of RAD Light My Way,” comments 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.”
ROSA is Space and User Friendly
ROSA is a compact, self-contained, portable, security and communication solution that can be installed and activated in about 15 minutes. Like other RAD solutions, the company says it only requires power as it includes all necessary communications hardware. ROSA’s AI-driven security analytics include human, firearm, vehicle detection, license plate recognition, responsive digital signage and audio messaging, and complete integration with RAD’s software suite notification and autonomous response library. Two-way communication is optimized for cellular, including live video from ROSA’s dual high-resolution, full-color, always-on cameras.
According to the company, the deal with the university marks a game-changer for campus safety, as the tech-savvy school aims to replace outdated call boxes with ROSA’s AI and security capabilities. Equipped with RAD Light My Way system, the ROSA units will also allow students and staff to instantly summon powerful deterrence and emergency assistance.
RAD emphasizes the university’s decision to implement these AI-driven security solutions reflects the ongoing trend of using advanced technology to combat campus crime. Citing findings published in June 2022 from the School Survey on Crime and Safety, RAD points out that 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%, burglaries for 33%, and motor vehicle thefts for 11%.
Additionally, 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.
“We welcomed a large contingent of the university’s administrative and security staff to the REX a few months ago,” adds 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.”
