Detroit, Michigan, July 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (OTCPK:AITX), together with its wholly owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD) today announced the “Bailey’s Gift” campaign. The announcement was made during the company’s summer open house at its Detroit manufacturing facility.
The campaign will donate a minimum of 10 ROSA security robots with gun detection capabilities to underfunded or vulnerable K-12 schools in the United States. The program, Bailey’s Gift, is named after Bailey Holt, who was shot by a gunman in the January 23, 2018 shooting at Marshall County High School in rural Kentucky. Bailey’s mother, Secret Holt, participated in the announcement, alongside AITX and RAD CEO Steve Reinharz.
“The Bailey’s Gift campaign is truly remarkable, and we are so honored to be a part of it,” Secret Holt said. “My hope is that every school has the opportunity to experience this amazing technology. I have no doubt that this gun detection system will be a great asset to every school campus across the country.
RAD’s best-selling and award-winning ROSA “security-in-a-box” solution offers simple installation with no networking requirements. It is designed to work with or without School Resource Officers and, upon detecting a firearm, can immediately activate the lock (for schools equipped with electronic locks), immediately notify school personnel and law enforcement by audio, visual, SMS and other means. ROSA can detect firearms from over 150 feet away, under the right conditions, providing an incredible time advantage to protect and react.
“We are honored to do our part to help save lives and make schools safer,” Reinharz said. “The nation yearns for tangible solutions that can prevent future tragedies from occurring. We look forward to working with schools to rapidly deploy these ROSAs with gun detection technology.
The company estimates that there are over 100,000 K-12 schools that could immediately benefit from this gun detection technology. The RAD solution deploys quickly and provides an unbiased level of early detection and deterrence of potential firearm-related events in and around these buildings.
Mark Folmer, President of RAD, added: “I expect these ten ROSA firearm detection units to be assigned within days. We have an inexpensive solution that can reliably detect a firearm and autonomously trigger lockout procedures, alerts and alarms. Every school should be equipped with this technology.

RAD’s gun detection identifies the presence of handguns and long guns. Immediately upon detection of a firearm, RAD’s AI-based scans, the system will autonomously perform a variety of actions, including appropriately activating local audio and visual alerts, locking and securing doors, notifications to remote monitoring or on-site security personnel and law enforcement authorities. – ideally before any shot.
“The safety of our children should be at the top of everyone’s list. When we send our children to school every day and know that this kind of security technology would protect them before an active shooter reaches the door, it’s worth everything,” Ms Holt concluded.
RAD’s parent company, AITX, has applied for OTCQB listing. Future announcements will be made regarding the status of the OTCQB application.
