Automatic, Self-Navigation Mobile Robot Software, GeckoNav(tm), 10X Faster Than Jet Fighter Pilot Reflexes
CONYERS, GA, Jul 21, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) revealed today the "reflex time" of their automatic, self-navigation mobile robot software, GeckoNav in Part 4 of a four part discussion on "basebot 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."
Basebot technologies are the power, locomotion, sensor and software requirements of utilitarian mobile service robots (MSR's).
"At the time of the founding of GeckoSystems in 1997, typical personal computer CPU clock speeds were only a few hundred megahertz as compared to the much, much faster PC's today with multi-gigahertz CPU's. Consequently we focused our software development on new and innovative software paradigms using low clock CPU's that are considered today to be suitable only for netbooks, etc. Demonstrably we succeeded with the creation of GeckoNav," observed Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.
GeckoNav is written in C++ and runs in Windows 95, 98SE, 2000, and XP. GeckoNav achieves situational awareness regarding static and/or dynamic obstacles in its path and updates every 15-20 milliseconds. 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.
"Most jet fighter pilots have reflex times of 220-235 milliseconds from the time they see an obstacle to the time they react by moving the jet's joystick to avoid that incoming air to air missile or looming mountain top. When we began testing the update rate on GeckoNav we were very pleasantly surprised to learn how quickly our 'AI navigation engine' responds to torrents of incoming data streams processed by our proprietary software algorithms.
"To illustrate the significance of this extraordinary capability, Tom Cruise's role in the movie "Top Gun" comes to mind. He was not only a top gun amongst fighter pilots, but his character was also very competent at riding motorcycles and restored Porsche Speedsters. Hence our strongly held belief that given our extraordinarily efficient and very robust AI navigation engine, and its portability, we expect GeckoNav to also be important in other large markets such as professional healthcare, commercial security, public safety, agriculture, and defense. Our basebot technologies, such as GeckoNav, are not only relevant for consumer markets, but also several other business-to-business markets for improved ROI for our investors," concluded Spencer.
