GeckoSystems Releases Mobile Robot Sensor Fusion Video on YouTube
CONYERS, Ga., March 17, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) announced today that a demonstration of their advanced suite of sensor fusion technologies is available for viewing as an unedited video posted on www.youtube.com (keyword: GeckoSystems). GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging Mobile Service Robot (MSR) industry revolutionizing development and usage with "mobile robot solutions for safety, security, and service."
"We were favorably reviewed by a Frost & Sullivan market research report for our achievements in advanced sensor fusion system development. This video depicts the sensor fusion technologies of GeckoNav, GeckoOrient, the GeckoSPIO, and the CompoundedSensorArray, all working in concert to enable automatic self-navigation in tight, fragile home environments without any human intervention and/or control. These robust, developed, proprietary technologies will enable GeckoSystems to provide increased ROI for our stockholders," commented Martin Spencer, President/CEO.
GeckoSystems employs proprietary sensor fusion technologies in its flagship automatic self-navigation software, GeckoNav, and GeckoTrak, the GeckoSPIO, GeckoOrient. GeckoTrak uses advanced sensor fusion to merge machine vision, passive infrared and sonar to identify and locate the person of interest. The GeckoTrak can inform GeckoNav automatically the whereabouts of the designated person for continuous proximate monitoring. The GeckoSPIO, a sensor/power input/output mobile robot controller board, enables faster more graceful self-navigation through loose crowds of moving people in airports, bus and train terminals, shopping centers and other public areas. GeckoOrient automatically and intelligently merges sensor data from odometry, a solid-state compass and an accelerometer based gyroscope for enhanced orientation accuracy while errand running, patrolling, or following a designated person.
The Company's mobile robot solutions are appropriate for the consumer, professional healthcare, commercial security and defense markets. The consumer has needs for family care assistance with remote monitoring and notification to assist family care for the elderly, chronically ill, and children. Professional healthcare needs cost effective errand running, portable telemedicine, and enabling specialist nurses to be more efficient and productive. Homeland Security needs cost effective mobile robots patrolling public venues with WMD and small arms weapon detection. Commercial and military users desire the elimination of the "man in the loop" to enable unmanned ground and air vehicles that do not require constant human control.
"We're really excited about what GeckoSystems has to offer. The videos on YouTube showcase a graceful and smooth moving self navigating robot as never seen before in the world," states Martin Spencer, President/CEO.
