GeckoScheduler date and time scheduling system enables mobile robots to timely and repetitively provide verbal reminders.



GeckoSystems International Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) announced that they have completed the prototyping and development of their mobile robot date and time scheduling system, GeckoScheduler™ 1.2. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging Mobile Service Robot (MSR) industry revolutionizing their development and usage with their “Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security, and Service™.”

“For any mobile robot to have timely utility, there needs to be date, time, and calendaring capability to schedule the mobile robot to execute certain tasks on certain dates at certain times. This is much like the scheduling capability of a VCR, DVR, or TiVo®. GeckoScheduler can be readily configured for executing the timing of medication reminders, etc.,” observed Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.

GeckoScheduler enables mobile robots such as the CareBot to timely and repetitively (using GeckoChat) remind Grandma, or other care receivers, in addition to medication reminders, of favorite TV shows coming on, relatives and/or friends coming to visit, family anecdotes, favorite Bible verses, songs, and other timely, routine reminders. GeckoChat uses computer generated voice synthesis to verbally communicate to serve as a surrogate short-term or long-term memory or a type of cognitive prosthesis. These reminders and/or verbal interactions may be scheduled as either one-time events or repetitive on a minute-by-minute, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly basis. These pre-scheduled tasks can include GeckoNav and/or GeckoTrak activities such as timely errand running, patrolling, and/or following the care receiver or other designated person.

“GeckoScheduler further complements the suite of fundamental, yet disparate, functional benefits needed to cost effectively provide utility to families for remote care taking of their members and other loved ones. This will benefit all our stakeholders and improve ROI for our investors,” concluded Spencer.

GeckoScheduler is written in C++ and communicates with GeckoNav™, GeckoChat, and GeckoTrak™ using TCP/IP on a 100Mhz on board local area network (LAN).
