GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) announced that they have completed the prototyping and development of their new full robot body touch sensor, the GeckoTactileShroud™ 2.0. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging Mobile Service Robot (MSR) industry revolutionizing their development and usage with mobile robot solutions for safety, security, and service.™

This latest mobile robot solution enables safer, faster navigation through stationary or moving groups of people, whether at home, office, or in loose crowds at airports, bus terminals, etc. “Our sensor loving, fully autonomous AI software, GeckoNav™, enables ‘autonomy achieved’ for truly adaptive, intelligent mobile robots. The GeckoTactileShroud enables even safer mobile robot operation with a non-mechanical switch emergency stop capability when someone, or something, brushes or touches the MSR’s covering. Now, our customers have greater mobile robot safety and our investors, an increased ROI,” stated R. Martin Spencer, President/CEO.

The GeckoTactileShroud uses a micro machined 2-axis accelerometer. It reflexively halts the locomotion system directly and immediately, much like the human nervous system.
