GeckoSystems Releases More Elder Care Robot Trial Videos
CONYERS, GA, May 26, 2010 -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) -- -- announced today that they have released more videos taken in the home of one of their elder care robot trial participants. GeckoSystems initiated these world's first mobile service robot trials 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".
"This is an excellent example of our advanced GeckoSavant software architecture's robustness and ease of extensibility. In these new videos, you can see from two perspectives: one onboard the CareBot and another simultaneously off board. These demonstrable improvements were made in the last few weeks. The GeckoSuper orchestrates GeckoNav and GeckoTrak to invoke the emergent beneficial behavior of following an elderly person around their home as they go about their daily routines," 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 they 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 are very pleased to make these additional, contemporary and substantive elder care robot trial videos available on our website and YouTube.com. We show the same sequence from two different perspectives to carefully document the veracity of these groundbreaking, world's first elder care robot trials.

"We continue to make progress in: demonstrating and exploring the benefits of our CareBots due to our elder care robot trials, securing contract manufacturing for expansion of the trials and pent up demand, and potentially licensing of our suite of technologies domestically and/or internationally. We are working multiple tracks to increase ROI for our investors," concluded Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.
About the CareBot:
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.
