Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD), an innovator in artificial intelligence and robotics and master distributor for SMP Robotics Systems Corp. has announced it is advancing its complete line of next-generation autonomous robotic guards with the NVIDIA Jetson embedded computing platform.

NVIDIA Jetson AI Supercomputer

Using NVIDIA Jetson, an embedded AI supercomputer ideal for intelligent machines, RAD robotics can achieve higher levels of autonomy, while adding advanced people and vehicle detection on the moving robot.

The new RAD product line-up offers global security teams situational awareness tools to deliver unprecedented deployment flexibility and operational productivity. Using the Jetson platform’s high-performance, power-efficient supercomputing for deep learning and computer vision, RAD autonomous robotic systems can be more predictive, accurate, productive and easily reconfigured for a variety of tasks.

Smarter Autonomous Machines

RAD will demonstrate new Jetson-powered vision capabilities on its autonomous robotic systems at the ISC West Conference and Expo, which will take place between April 5-7 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. Visitors can find RAD at booth #3122 and NVIDIA at booth #20075.

“By using the NVIDIA Jetson embedded platform, we can develop smarter autonomous robots that can learn from the environment around them to navigate safely, as well as identify and classify objects of interest, including cars and people,” said Steve Reinharz, Founder and CEO, RAD. “This innovation marks the next generation of robotics.”

“Today’s advanced robots can learn, adapt and evolve through the power of AI,” said Murali Gopalakrisha, head of product management for Intelligent Machines at NVIDIA. “Working with innovators like RAD, we’re driving new capabilities and benefits for autonomous machines.”
