Detroit, Michigan, Nov. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), is pleased to announce a large expansion order from a major big box retailer. The order was facilitated through one of RAD’s largest national authorized dealers.
This expansion order follows a successful pilot-to-full deployment trajectory, reflecting the growing confidence in RAD’s technology in logistics, warehouse, and distribution center environments. Additional details can be found in a press release dated July 27, 2023: AITX's Subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Books Order for 27 ROSA Security Robots from Leading Retail Chain. Notably, this expansion does not involve the end user client's retail side but focuses exclusively on their extensive distribution center operations.
The client, with a vast network of over 2,000 stores across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, supported by over 100 distribution centers in the U.S. alone, including 20 in Texas, has recognized the value of RAD's solutions. The pilot program, which began at the end of February 2023 with a single ROSA unit at their Goodyear, Arizona facility, demonstrated ROSA’s versatility and performance in both indoor and outdoor placements.
Following the pilot program’s success, the first significant deployment occurred in Romulus, Michigan in August 2023, involving 8 units in a warehouse and distribution center environment. This deployment focused on indoor monitoring and has been fully operational, with ongoing discussions related to the unit’s response panel and device optimization. This further demonstrates the versatility of ROSA as it has been, until now, primarily used in outdoor environments.
The expansion order for 56 RAD devices encompasses 8 locations, each receiving 7 ROSA units. These locations include Montgomery, AL, Baytown, TX, Joliet, IL, Monee, IL, Goodyear, AZ, Riverside, CA, Monroe, OH and McDonough, GA, and brings RAD’s presence to a total of nine distribution centers for this client.
Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD, stated, “This large client expansion is a milestone for RAD. It underscores the scalability and effectiveness of our solutions in complex warehouse environments. Our continued partnership with this dealer, plus the client's demonstrated commitment to adopting and embracing RAD technology is an affirmation of the value we deliver.”
Furthermore, the Company noted that there are ongoing discussions regarding future expansion orders and deployments throughout several additional client distribution center locations.
“This is the continuation of the penetration of our technology in the warehousing and distribution sector. We’re looking forward to seeing our solutions make a significant impact in improving security and operational efficiency in these environments,” added Reinharz.
