GeckoSystems Improves CareBot Due to Elder Care Robot Trials
CONYERS, GA, May 25, 2010 -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) -- -- announced today that they have enhanced the benefit of owning one of their personal companion robots with improvements in several of their proprietary technologies as a result of their groundbreaking in home mobile service robot trials begun late last fall.
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".
"In the last few weeks we have improved GeckoNav to be more confident while automatically self navigating in tight areas and more sprightly and attentive in its following a designated care receiver using GeckoTrak. We have added more sensor fusion by way of the GeckoSPIO. The newly added sensor fusion includes four new long-range IR range finders intelligently merged with sonar, simple spoke proximity detectors, and dead reckoning. We have decreased the locomotion system's acceleration time to speed in the GeckoMotorController.
"The GeckoSuper now has more 'common sense' to allow the full benefit of these changes to be actionable and beneficial situation awareness. In summary, due to the robustness of our GeckoSavant architecture, we have readily 'tuned' the emergent beneficial behaviors for our CareBot as it goes about enabling the care giver to 'take care of' grandma while doing other daily tasks," observed Mark Peele, Vice President, R&D, GeckoSystems.
The GeckoSuper is the GeckoSavant responsible for system-wide orchestrated "common sense." For example, given two or more inputs, GeckoSuper can determine the order in which these inputs need to be addressed. GeckoNav is the AI software guidance system for the CareBot that provides automatic self-navigation without human intervention. GeckoTrak is the AI software system using sensor fusion that delivers a goal to GeckoNav by way of the GeckoSuper to seek.
"We continue to make progress in demonstrating and improving the cost effective benefit of our telepresence capable CareBots for the caregiver and care receiver. We are securing contract manufacturing for further expansion of our ongoing elder care robot trials and for pent up demand. We continue to pursue domestic and international licensing of our suite of technologies. We wish to provide a preponderance of evidence that we have a cost effective, utilitarian mobile service robot, the CareBot, as our first product. This is for increased ROI for our investors," concluded Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.
