GeckoSystems Hosting "Mobile Robots in Motion" Conference
CONYERS, Ga., Feb. 10th, 2010 -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) -- announced today that they are hosting their Spring "Mobile Robots in Motion" conference March 24-25, 2010. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging mobile robotics industry revolutionizing their development and usage with "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service."
"Since we began our world's first in home evaluation trials for eldercare capable personal robots late last fall, we have received many inquiries as to 'how are they going?' Very well and better than expected in some significant ways, so all of us here at GeckoSystems are excited about this upcoming "Mobile Robots in Motion" stakeholder conference to publicly demonstrate our state of the art mobile robots, their technologies and our first product, a personal companion robot, the CareBot.
"We will be having this conference in our new (since Jan. 1 this year), 4,000 square feet R&D and manufacturing facility in the Honey Creek area of Rockdale County, just south of Conyers, Ga. We believe our attendees' planned presence is due to not only our flagship product, our proprietary automatic self-navigation software, GeckoNav, but also the reality that we have a complete multitasking personal companion robot, the CareBot, with verbal interaction and 'command and control' capabilities arising from GeckoChat, and the ability to routinely follow a designated family member with GeckoTrak that has been in limited evaluation trials for over two months now.
"We have invited many of our stakeholders for this invitation only event. We expect representation from firms such as PerkinElmer, Texas Instruments, Dell, Acer, Bosch, GRT Electronics, Honeywell, AMD, Oriental Motors, Sparton Medical, Coroware, Lumenvox, Symphony, SIASUN, Skilligent, Computer Science Corp., Enersys, Omron, Intelligent Motion Systems, DigiKey, ABI Research, Frost & Sullivan, Strategy Analytics, Motorola, Bayer Materials, IEE Sensing, Omron-STI, Axis Group, Hewlett Packard, and Market Pulse," observed Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.
Discussions and live demonstrations of many, if not most, GeckoSystems' mobile robot solutions such as GeckoNav, GeckoChat, GeckoTrak, GeckoScheduler, GeckoZap, GeckoOrient, GeckoSPIO, GeckoMotorController, the CompoundedSensorArray, etc. will be presented during this two day conference. This conference with its live demonstrations will enable many industry observers and investors to witness and determine for themselves the proximity to market and consumer acceptance GeckoSystems' first product, the CareBot, will enjoy. Additionally they will be better able to evaluate the probability of income streams from technology licensing and applicability in other markets besides the consumer, such as commercial security, commercial cleaning, public safety, professional healthcare, government systems, agriculture, and education.
Like an automobile, mobile robots are made from steel, aluminum, plastic, and electronics, but with ten to twenty times the amount of software running. The CareBot has an aluminum frame, plastic shroud, two independently driven wheels, multiple sensor systems, microprocessors and several onboard computers connected in a local area network (LAN). The microprocessors directly interact with the sensor systems and transmit data to the onboard computers. The onboard computers each run independent, highly specialized cooperative/subsumptive artificial intelligence (AI) software programs, GeckoSavants, which interact to complete tasks in a timely, intelligent and common sense manner. GeckoNav, GeckoChat and GeckoTrak are primary GeckoSavants. GeckoNav is responsible for maneuvering, avoiding dynamic and/or static obstacles, seeking waypoints and patrolling. GeckoChat is responsible for interaction with the care-receiver such as answering questions, assisting with daily routines and reminders, and responding to other verbal commands. GeckoTrak, which is mostly transparent to the user, enables the CareBot to maintain proximity to the care-receiver using sensor fusion. The CareBot is an internet appliance that is accessible for remote video/audio monitoring and telepresence.
"One of the many reasons we had our conference last fall, and perhaps several this year, is that 'the proof of the pudding is in the eating.' In other words, very few people have ever seen a personal companion robot in action and consequently do not understand how difficult our many achievements have been to realize, and given our demonstrable suite of enabling technologies, the large markets before us due to our 'first mover' advantage. We are hopeful that some of the firms with which we are having licensing discussions regarding usage of some our technologies will also be in attendance," concluded Spencer.
