DETROIT – Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD), a wholly owned subsidiary of AITX, announced that its RADDOG 2LE quadruped robot was a hit on the red carpet at the launch party for "Stars on Mars." 

Debuting on FOX on June 5, ‘Stars on Mars’ is a show placing celebrities in an unscripted environment where they attempt to colonize and conquer ‘Mars’, starring Lance Armstrong, Marshawn Lynch, Ronda Rousey, Porsha Williams, Natasha Leggero, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Adam Rippon, Richard Sherman, Tinashe, Tom Schwartz, Tallulah Willis, and Ariel Winter.

AITX CEO Steve Reinharz and RADDOG lead engineer Matthew Margittay participated in the show’s production and were on hand at the event on Thursday, June 1 in Hollywood. “This was about as much fun as you can have with a robotic dog and celebrities,” said Reinharz. “Easily one of the highlights of my professional career. I thank Eureka Productions and FOX for the incredible opportunity to introduce RADDOG and showcase the remarkable technology that our team has put into this amazing robotic dog.”  

RAD’s RADDOG 2LE is set to be introduced on Tuesday June 6th, with demonstrations available for law enforcement agencies. The RADDOG quadruped robots used in the show are similar to RADDOG 2LE units, which have been specially designed for law enforcement. For the show, RADDOGs perform the duties of the mission’s security robots, as well as being companions to the crew members.

“It was so great to reconnect with the celebrities that participated in the show,” said Margittay. “This was probably the first time in television that humans have interacted with a real robot. I can imagine that this won’t be the last time. RADDOG 2LE will set the standard for autonomous robot dogs. I’m excited for the marketplace to soon learn about all the advanced features that RADDOG 2LE has.”

Complete specifics of the RADDOG 2LE’s capabilities, features and other details including pricing and options will be made available Tuesday at
