GeckoSystems Reveals Licensing Opportunities at "Mobile Robots in Motion" Conference
CONYERS, Ga., March 25, 2010 -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) -- -- announced today at their "Mobile Robots in Motion" Conference that they are now soliciting business-to-business licensing opportunities for their "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security, and Service".
"For the past three months we have been using our suite of mobile robot solutions in our first business-to-consumer (B2C) product, the CareBot, in our elder care robot trials. During this real world testing we have gained sufficient confidence to offer these proprietary solutions to those firms and/or individuals interested in manufacturing and distributing into the various business-to-business (B2B) markets such as professional healthcare, commercial security, public safety, and government. Demonstrably GeckoSystems has viable, cost effective solutions for not only software navigation, verbal interaction, and event scheduling; but also multiple, low cost sensor fusion solutions and differential drive locomotion management," remarked Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.
GeckoNav is the GeckoSavant developed by GeckoSystems that enables their mobile robots to express reliable automatic self-navigation and avoid unforeseen obstacles whether static and/or dynamic while ambulating. This is achieved using a low clock, low power x86 CPU. Sometimes this level of autonomy is referred to as "loose crowd capable" due to its fully autonomous (hands off) ability to automatically path find through a loose crowd of moving people.
Another GeckoSavant, GeckoChat, uses voice recognition/synthesis and a forward chaining expert system to enable verbal interaction and/or command and control of the CareBot. GeckoScheduler is a date and time aware database manager that provides the CareBot with event timing for verbal reminders, errand running, patrolling, tracking, etc. Common sense management and coordination between all GeckoSavants is accomplished using the GeckoSuper.
GeckoOrient fuses sensor data from three disparate orientation subsystems to achieve better absolute accuracy than any single orientation subsystem, without accumulative error, but at lower cost than a single high accuracy device.
GeckoSystems' CompoundedSensorArray displaces expensive and slow machine vision solutions with sufficient situation awareness of the environment to enable GeckoNav to avoid even unexpected obstacles while patrolling, following, or errand running.
The GeckoSPIO is their robot controller board that orchestrates, collects and disseminates hundreds of sensor data inputs per second. Additionally it enables management of the locomotion system in near real time using the GeckoMotorController which not only minimizes power consumption by careful, adaptive management of the acceleration and de-acceleration of the locomotion motors' speeds, but also enables differential drives to travel in a straight line when requested to do so.
"For nearly four years we have worked to develop, debug, refine and test all the foregoing mobile robot solutions, and more. All of our proprietary solutions have been designed to be portable and extensible. I am very pleased to be making these solutions available to those in the B2B markets presently engaged, or considering involvement in the emerging industry of mobile robotics," commented Mark Peele, Vice President, R&D, GeckoSystems.
