Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) has revealed North Carolina’s Scotland Memorial Hospital as the initial healthcare deployment of RAD Light My Way.

According to the company, this deployment, which began in late 2022, included the installation of multiple ROSA security robots throughout the hospital’s parking lots.

Nine ROSA units comprising this phase of the deployment were configured as four dual-unit ROSA-P devices in addition to one standard ROSA.

ROSA-P uses existing light poles as its primary power source whether or not the light is centrally controlled.

ROSA is a compact, self-contained, portable, security and communication solution with AI-driven security analytics including 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.

Protecting healthcare workers

“Our staff feels safer now that they’re protected by RAD Light My Way. There have been no serious incidents since the installation of the system,” said David Pope, Chief Operating Officer with Scotland Memorial Hospital.

“When given the option, our team preferred RAD Light My Way to be installed throughout the property instead of adding more security guards.”

“This has been such a rewarding deployment for us,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD.

“Knowing that the hospital staff is trusting RAD Light My Way and the ROSAs to keep them safe means the world to us.

“We hope that this success can sweep across the nation. Healthcare workers deserve to know that their facilities are doing everything they can to provide a safe environment.”
