Expanding Mobile Service Robot Market Creating Jobs
CONYERS, GA, Jun 04, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) announced today that they consider the recently publicized projected personal robot sales of fifteen billion dollars ($15,000,000,000) by 2015 to be low. 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."
"While we consider this forecast to be low, this forecast does indicate that over fifty thousand (50,000) new jobs will be created in high paying robotics development and manufacturing within the next four to five years," commented R. Martin Spencer, president/CEO, GeckoSystems.
"During the last significant recession in 1980-1982, the downturn of the economy dramatically accelerated the adoption of a significant and very unexpected, if not disruptive, new technology: the now common Personal Computer." Mr. Spencer continued: "The immediate impact of productivity improvements and cost savings drove the PC into markets faster than the adoption in good, less stressed economic times. That new, high tech, high growth PC industry created hundreds of jobs during that recession. Due to the less than one-year payback for many, if not most, of our mobile service robot solutions, we expect our growth to be driven not only by the present economic downturn's severe cost reduction pressures, but also by pent up demand. We expect to add more than a hundred new employees in the next year."
In this emerging industry, software programmers will work towards solving challenging issues in Artificial Intelligence, Human Machine Interaction, Actionable Situational Awareness, Sensor Fusion, etc. Computer and electrical engineers will also work on Actionable Situational Awareness and Sensor Fusion and challenging issues in Control Systems, Hardware Abstraction, Embedded System Design, etc. Underutilized electronic contract manufacturing production facilities will be used for final assembly, calibration, and testing prior to shipment to VARS, OEMs, dealers, and others.
