GeckoSystems' Software Architecture Enables Verbal Interaction With Mobile Robots
CONYERS, GA, Jul 20, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- GeckoSystems International Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) announced today that they have completed the prototyping and development of their mobile robot verbal control and interaction software and hardware system, GeckoChat 2.1, using advanced natural language processing and expert system technologies. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging Mobile Service Robot (MSR) industry revolutionizing their development and usage with their "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security, and Service".
"We have worked for some years to develop the ability for our CareBot MSR's to intelligently listen and respond to spoken commands of the caregiver and/or care receiver. GeckoChat can be readily customized for words and phrases to be recognized; and for words, phrases, and sentences that would be appropriate responses. GeckoChat further complements the suite of fundamental, yet disparate, functional benefits needed to cost effectively provide utility to families for remote care taking of their members and other loved ones. This will benefit all our stakeholders and improve ROI for our investors," concluded Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.
GeckoChat can be easily programmed with either monologues and/or dialogues with or without time scheduling (using GeckoScheduler) depending on the user's preferences. Natural language processing and a forward chaining expert system written in Prolog and C++ are the primary structures of this specific AI software engine, GeckoChat. This new set of interactive verbal behaviors brings a new level of actionable situational awareness to mobile robots.
Situational awareness is the environmental understanding resulting from blended sensor systems (such as listening and seeing) and the common sense implications of those combined perceptions.
GeckoChat communicates with GeckoNav, GeckoScheduler, and GeckoTrak using TCP/IP on a 100Mhz on board local area network (LAN).
