GeckoSystems Secures Lawsuit Dismissal
CONYERS, GA, October 17, 2013 -- GeckoSystems International Corp. (Pink Sheets: GOSY | http://www.geckosystems.com/) is pleased to announce that the only active litigation against the company or its management has been dismissed with prejudice. For over fifteen years GeckoSystems has dedicated itself to development of "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service ."
"When this suit was filed over two years ago, our legal counsel was of the opinion that the suit was merit less. Nonetheless, since this same party had damaged GeckoSystems by filing multiple abusive legal actions over a number of years in addition to other disruptive activities, as a defensive measure the company filed a counter suit for tortious interference. When the presiding judge issued a court opinion that the defamation suit was without basis, it was immediately withdrawn. Although this egregiously abusive suit and other actions of the Plaintiff damaged GeckoSystems, we withdrew our counter suit because we believe that more appropriate venues exist," reflected Martin Spencer, president/CEO, GeckoSystems.
GeckoSystems has no other lawsuits pending. The two judgments remaining involve the same party that initiated the now dismissed suit. These judgments to be settled are minor and not material to the progress of GeckoSystems.
"While litigation is always regrettable, it is fundamental to the business environment in which all enterprises operate. In the past calendar year we have achieved our first net profits and gained international recognition as an industry leader in advanced AI mobile service robot solutions. I continue to remain completely confident of our continued growth prospects and sufficient ROI to justly reward our 1300+ loyal stockholders," concluded Spencer.
GeckoSystems has been developing innovative robotic technologies for fifteen years. It is CEO Martin Spencer's dream to make people's lives better through robotic technology.
An overview of GeckoSystems' progress containing over 700 pictures and 120 videos can be found at http://www.geckosystems.com/timeline/..
These videos illustrate the development of the technology that makes GeckoSystems a world leader in Service Robotics development. Early CareBot prototypes were slower and frequently pivoted in order to avoid a static or dynamic obstacle; later prototypes avoided obstacles without pivoting. Current CareBots avoid obstacles with a graceful "bicycle smooth" motion. The latest videos also depict the CareBot's ability to automatically go faster or slower depending on the amount of clutter (number of obstacles) within its field of view. This is especially important when avoiding moving obstacles in "loose crowd " situations like a mall or an exhibit area.
In addition to the timeline videos, GeckoSystems has numerous YouTube videos. The most popular of which are the ones showing room-to-room automatic self-navigation of the CareBot through narrow doorways and a hallway of an old 1954 home. You will see the CareBot slow down when going through the doorways because of their narrow width and then speed up as it goes across the relatively open kitchen area. There are also videos of the SafePath wheelchair, which is a migration of the CareBot AI centric navigation system to a standard power wheelchair, and recently developed cost effective depth cameras were used in this recent configuration. SafePath navigation is now available to OEM licensees and these videos show the versatility of GeckoSystems' fully autonomous navigation solution.
GeckoSystems, Star Wars Technology
The company has successfully completed an Alpha trial of its CareBot personal assistance robot for the elderly. It was tested in a home care setting and received enthusiastic support from both caregivers and care receivers. The company believes that the CareBot will increase the safety and well being of its elderly charges while decreasing stress on the caregiver and the family.
GeckoSystems is preparing for Beta testing of the CareBot prior to full-scale production and marketing. CareBot has recently incorporated Microsoft Kinect depth cameras that result in a significant cost reduction.
Kinect Enabled Personal Robot video:
Above, the CareBot demonstrates static and dynamic obstacle avoidance as it backs in and out of a narrow and cluttered alley. There is no joystick control or programmed path; movements are smoother that those achieved using a joystick control. GeckoNav creates three low levels of obstacle avoidance: reactive, proactive, and contemplative. Subsumptive AI behavior within GeckoNav enables the CareBot to reach its target destination after engaging in obstacle avoidance.
