Developer of CoroBot and Explorer robotic platforms expands into the Asia-Pacific region with partnership with Malaysian distributer.

CoroWare Technologies, a subsidiary of CoroWare, Inc. (OTCBB:COWI), announced it has entered into a distribution agreement with Malaysia-based technology provider Megah Suria Sdn. Bhd. Beginning January 4, 2010, Megah Suria added CoroWare’s CoroBot and Explorer robots to their product portfolios.

Megah Suria offers technically advanced and leading edge product portfolios featuring efficient and highly reliable equipment specially designed to solve problems faced by members of the research, development and education communities. With more than 30 years of experience, the company has built a wide range of vendor relationships affiliated with education and research.

“Our partnership with CoroWare enables us to introduce innovative robotic platforms to the educational and research sectors, and channel new and cost-effective solutions to researchers and educators in this field,” said S. M. Wong, Commercial Director for Megah Suria.

CoroWare’s robotics product line includes the CoroBot and Explorer platforms. These development platforms include PC-class processors, on-board sensors, color cameras and optional robotic arms capable of four degrees of freedom.
