AITX Partners With Ghost Robotics to Develop Quadruped Robot

GhostRAD UGV400x275

August 19, 2021

Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions (AITX), which develops AI-based security and productivity solutions for enterprises, has announced it signed an agreement with Ghost Robotics to develop a range of products through the Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) brand. Ghost develops and manufacturers Quadrupedal Unmanned Ground Vehicles (Q-UGV) for security and military applications.

“Ghost Robotics’ advanced technology has positioned them as the market leader in the [Q-UGV] space,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX. “Ghost’s CEO, Jiren Parikh and I have been working towards this moment for the past few years, and we’re thrilled to ink this agreement.”

Parikh added, “We are delighted to enter into this agreement, and look forward to co-developing a range of new products with the Robotic Assistance Devices companies. RAD has been a market maker in the security services industry with their stationary and mobile products. Integrating our Q-UGVs into their offering will certainly open doors and bring new opportunities for both companies.”

AITX said it expects to have a consolidated PCB component, named “RADPak Mini”, and produced by its RAD-G subsidiary, will power and control the RAD functions on the Q-UGV. Development work will be performed by RAD’s mobility subsidiary, RAD-M. “This is the first non-RAD developed product that will incorporate our technology into and is a great leap for RAD-G’s technology,” said Reinharz.

The company said it anticipates that product announcements from this strategic relationship will occur within the next six to 12 months. “In the coming months, our ROAMEO product will have a sidekick or two,” said Reinharz. “While ROAMEO stands nearly seven feet tall and provides a variety of security and facility-focused services, the Q-UGV will provide different services that we will announce as the product gets closer to full commercialization.”

Philadelphia-based Ghost Robotics, founded in 2015, develops quadruped robots that manage unstructured terrain and operate in demanding environments. The robots serve a broad range of government and enterprise applications where mobile robots with four legs have advantages over wheels, tracks, and even bipedal systems.

AITX delivers AI-based solutions through next-generation robotic product offerings. It’s RAD, RAD-M and RAD-G companies help organizations streamline operations and increase ROI. For more details on the company, visit the RAD website here.
