GeckoSystems Improves Mobile Robot Diagnostic Software
Conyers, GA, Jul 29, 2008 (WORLD STOCK WIRE via COMTEX) -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) announced today that they have completed the development of their advanced mobile robot diagnostic and sensor calibration software, GeckoZap 7.4. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging Mobile Service Robot (MSR) industry revolutionizing their development and usage with mobile robot solutions for safety, security, and service.
This latest mobile robot solution, GeckoZap, enables third party developers to determine their mobile robot's platform for integration with GeckoSystems' automatic self-navigation software, GeckoNav. It also assists in the testing, debugging, and calibration of the plethora of sensor fused systems necessary to achieve high levels of situational awareness for mobile robots for safer, faster navigation through stationary or moving groups of people, whether at home, office, or in loose crowds at airports, bus terminals, etc.
"Our sensor loving, fully autonomous AI software, GeckoNav, enables 'autonomy achieved' for truly adaptive, intelligent mobile robots with an extraordinary level of situational awareness. GeckoZap simplifies and automates the many critical tests and calibrations required for easy adaptation of GeckoNav on third party mobile robot platforms. Now, our customers have greater ease and cost effectiveness in using GeckoZap to determine the probable congruence, effectiveness, and synergy of their platform and GeckoNav," stated R. Martin Spencer, President/CEO.
GeckoZap allows the robotics technician to calibrate the dead reckoning system, the CompoundedSensorArray, the GeckoMotorController, the GeckoTactileShroud, and GeckoOrient. It has a user-interface that readily allows the technician to manually send commands to the robot, which would normally be sent automatically by GeckoNav. This allows the user to test functionality of the mobile robot by sending/retrieving data and commanding the robot's movements. Commands are sent to the robot in "packets." These packets consist of vital information for controlling the robot: header information such as node addresses for different internal components, and the component-specific commands. GeckoZap makes the packet assembly and serial transmission transparent to the user by providing a "point-and-click" interface for these operations. It runs on Windows 98/2000/XP.
