GeckoSystems Hosting Annual "Mobile Robots in Motion" Conference

CONYERS, GA--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GOSY) (http://www.geckosystems.com/), a dynamic leader in the emerging mobile robotics industry, announced today it will host its third-annual "Mobile Robots in Motion" stakeholder conference April 13-14, 2011 in Conyers, Ga. The conference will demonstrate GeckoSystems' state-of-the-art mobile robots and its technologies concerning its first product, the personal companion robot, the CareBot™. 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."™

The CareBot is programmed to self-navigate throughout the home or office while utilizing its artificial intelligence to recognize its surroundings. In addition, the CareBot, which has an estimated battery life of up to 20 hours, serves its owner's needs as a personal assistant, security patrol, caretaking, etc.

Like an automobile, mobile robots are made from steel, aluminum, plastic and electronics, yet 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. The CareBot is also an Internet appliance that is accessible for remote video/audio monitoring and telepresence.

During the two-day event, discussions and live demonstrations will be held featuring GeckoSavants such as:

  • GeckoNav™: Proprietary automatic self-navigation software responsible for maneuvering, avoiding dynamic and/or static obstacles, seeking waypoints and patrolling.
  • GeckoChat™: The verbal interaction and 'command and control' responsible for interaction with the care-receiver such as answering questions, assisting with daily routines and reminders.
  • GeckoTrak™: The ability to routinely follow a designated family member and enables the CareBot to maintain proximity to the care-receiver using sensor fusion.
  • GeckoImager™: The utilization of Microsoft's Kinect depth camera.
  • Other demonstrations will include GeckoScheduler™, GeckoZap™, GeckoOrient™, GeckoSPIO™, and the GeckoMotorController™.

The live demonstrations will enable many industry observers and investors to witness the overall capabilities of the CareBot. Additionally, attendees will be better able to evaluate the probability of income streams from technology licensing and applicability in other markets besides the consumer, such as:

  • Commercial security
  • Public safety
  • Professional healthcare
  • Government systems
  • Agriculture
  • Education

"One of the many reasons we have these conferences is that 'the proof of the pudding is in the eating,'" said GeckoSystems' President/CEO Martin Spencer. "In other words, very few people have ever seen a personal companion robot in action and consequently do not understand how difficult our many inventions are to achieve.

"However, live demonstrations give our suite of enabling, proprietary technologies credence and value. We have several large markets before us due to our 'first mover' advantage in them. We are hopeful that some of the firms with which we are having licensing discussions regarding usage of some our technologies will also be in attendance," concluded Spencer.

Journalists, stockholders, prospective vendors, interested investors and business partners may submit their request for an invitation to the "Mobile Robots in Motion" conference at info(at)GeckoSystems.com or call 678-413-9236.

About GeckoSystems International Corporation:

Since 1997, GeckoSystems has developed a comprehensive, coherent and sufficient suite of hardware and software inventions to enable a new type of home appliance (a personal companion robot) the CareBot™, to be created for the mass consumer marketplace. The suite of primary inventions includes: GeckoNav™, GeckoChat™ and GeckoTrak™.

The primary market for this product is the family for use in eldercare, care for the chronically ill and childcare. The primary distribution channel for this new home appliance is the thousands of independent personal computer retailers in the U.S. The manufacturing infrastructure for this new product category of mobile service robots is essentially the same as the personal computer industry. Several outside contract manufacturers have been identified and qualified their ability to produce up to 1,000 CareBots per month within four to six months.

By the end of this year, the Company plans to complete productization of its CareBot offering with the introduction of its fourth generation personal robot, the CareBot MSR 4.0. The Company was and is the first personal robot developer and manufacturer in the world to begin in-home eldercare evaluation trials.

The present senior management at GeckoSystems has more than 35 years experience in consumer electronics sales and marketing, and product development. Senior managers have been identified for the areas of manufacturing, marketing, sales, and finance.
