Uses: Personal Assistance Robots
Throughout the history of GeckoSystems the focus has been on personal assistance robots, also known as Mobile Service Robots (MSRs).
There are many R&D projects around the world focused on the same market, but we believe none of them are closer to being marketed than these GeckoSystems applications:.
The CareBot is the company's flagship product, to be marketed initially to assist caregivers with the elderly and disabled. In the future it will also be used for child care applications. The CareBot has been Alpha tested in a the home environment and is ready for Beta testing as soon as funds are available.
GeckoSystems has created the SafePath wheelchair by using navigation technology developed for the CareBot and artificial intelligence to interpret joystick signals, filtering out erratic movements that often make it difficult for the disabled to use a power wheelchair. This technology goes beyond mere obstacle avoidance and actually enhances the response of the controls to the intention of the user, providing greater safety and enhanced mobility to disabled persons world wide.
