GeckoSystems To Host Mobile Robots Conference
CONYERS, Ga., Oct. 8, 2009 -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) -- announced today that they are hosting their first annual "Mobile Robots in Motion" conference November 4-5, 2009. 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."
"All of us here at GeckoSystems are excited about our first "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 are very pleased with the response to date regarding our upcoming conference. 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, GeckoChat, and the ability to routinely follow a designated family member with GeckoTrak.
"We have invited many of our stakeholders for this invitation only event. We expect representation from firms such as Texas Instruments, Dell, Acer, Bosch, Honeywell, AMD, Oriental Motors, Sparton Medical, 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, Market Pulse, etc.," concluded 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.
As predicted in the recent Forbes' article (http://www.forbes.com/2009/09/17/robots-health-care-technology-breakthroughs-telehealth.html), due to the sufficiency and cost effective robustness of GeckoSystems' first product, the CareBot, near term in home evaluation trials have been recently announced. This conference will enable many industry observers to witness and determine for themselves the proximity to market and consumer acceptance their first product will enjoy.
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.
Journalists are encouraged to contact Mr. Spencer regarding the progress of GeckoSystems and potential attendance at the upcoming GeckoSystems' invitation only "Mobile Robots in Motion" conference.
