CONYERS, Ga., -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (Pink Sheets: GOSY | www.geckosystems.com/) -- announced today that as a result of recent enhancements to GeckoNav(tm), the company is now calling their suite of fundamental mobile robot solutions for automatic, self-navigation: "SafePath Enabled(tm)." 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(tm)."
SafePath technology is an innovative navigation system created by GeckoSystems that merges robotic technology with traditional steering, locomotion and automatic guidance systems. SafePath goes beyond the collision avoidance systems now being used in automobiles and other applications. SafePath lets the user specify a destination and achieve it while the system takes over collision avoidance, speed adjustment, and compensates for variations in terrain (such as slippery or uneven surfaces). GeckoSystems anticipates commercial production the first SafePath wheelchair by the end of 2012, in a joint venture facility now under construction in Nanle, China.
SafePath navigation can be migrated to all existing mobile robotics applications. In addition it can be an upgrade to non-robotic applications such as the automobiles, military vehicles (including land mine detection systems), airport luggage/passenger carts, industrial transportation, and power wheelchairs.
GeckoSystems partner, ZMP of Japan, is already developing robotic applications in several of these areas and will be applying GeckoSystems SafePath technology to them.
GeckoSystems' proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) software solutions were originally developed for the CareBot(TM) mobile service robot (MSR).

"We have worked for nearly fifteen years developing 'Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security, and Service' and we are very pleased that our first commercial robotic application will be the SafePath Enabled wheelchair. We feel privileged to have an opportunity to help disabled persons around the world live with greater independence and dignity despite their confinement to a wheelchair," stated R. Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems Intl. Corp.
