Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions (AITX), along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD), has revealed a new order from a dealer for a chain of Midwest grocery stores to improve retail security.

According to the company, this order includes the deployment of its retail security solutions to six grocery stores.

Five of these stores will each receive one ROSA (Responsive Observation Security Agent) unit and one RIO 360 (ROSA Independent Observatory) unit.

The sixth store will be equipped with two RIO 360 units.

Upon full deployment and acceptance by the client, this order is expected to generate an estimated $165,000 in annual recurring revenue for RAD.

Retail security

The company says that this deployment represents the first time the RAD RIO units are being utilized in a multi-location retail environment.

RIO, a solar-powered security solution, is designed to address unique security challenges faced by retail outlets, offering enhanced surveillance and safety measures.

Sitting atop a standard RIO 360 configuration are dual ROSA units. 

ROSA is a compact, self-contained, portable, security and communication solution that can be installed and activated in about 15 minutes.

ROSA’s artificial intelligence (AI)-driven security analytics include human, firearm, vehicle detection, license plate recognition, responsive digital signage and audio messaging, as well as 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 high-resolution, full-color, always-on cameras.

Growth in the market

“This order is a testament to the growing recognition of RAD’s solutions in the retail sector,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX.

“The deployment of our units in a multi-location grocery chain not only demonstrates the versatility and effectiveness of our products but also opens a significant market opportunity in the vast network of grocery stores across America.”

“This new partnership with the Midwest grocery chain underscores the competitive edge that ROSA brings to the retail security sector,” added Troy McCanna, Senior Vice President Revenue Operations at RAD.

“ROSA’s unique blend of advanced surveillance technology, real-time analytics and autonomous response capabilities played a pivotal role in sealing this deal.

“Its ability to effectively address a wide range of security challenges – from loitering and trespassing to providing immediate incident response – makes ROSA an invaluable asset for retailers looking to enhance safety and efficiency across multiple locations.”
