GeckoSystems Enables More Graceful Mobile Robots

ATLANTA, GA, Mar. 13, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) announced today that they have further improved mobile robot performance, while holding costs constant, with the introduction of their GeckoMotorController™ 6.0. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging Mobile Service Robot industry revolutionizing their development and usage with mobile robot solutions for safety, security, and service.™

The new GeckoMotorController uses a proprietary "constant energy" paradigm for extraordinarily smooth acceleration and de-acceleration of mobile service robots. "A ‘herky jerky’ mobile robot platform can be very distracting when proximate to people and other living things. We are very pleased with the 'ballerina grace' that is now a part of our many advanced mobile robot solutions. This friendlier, smoother movement of our mobile robots will further speed the adoption of them by the consumer, professional healthcare, and commercial/homeland security marketplaces; while increasing ROI for our investors," concluded R. Martin Spencer, President/CEO.

The GeckoMotorController is written in C, uses quadrature encoded PWM and runs on the locomotion CPU that is a subsystem on the GeckoSPIO™.
