CONYERS, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/12 -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GOSY) (http://www.geckosystems.com/) revealed today that the previously announced acquisition and joint venture offers have moved to the next stage. Recent international recognition and acclaim has heightened plausible acquisition and/or joint venture discussions. For over fifteen years GeckoSystems has dedicated itself to development of "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service."
The recent increase in third party attention and validation of GeckoSystems BaseBot and SafePath technologies continues to draw the attention of the domestic and international business communities.
"For some years we have received more attention for our mobile robot solutions from Asia and Europe than the U.S. Recently an EU market research firm, Research and Markets, confirmed the numerous markets before us and our standing as one of eight key players in those service robotics markets. Shortly thereafter, a leading Japanese robot company, ZMP, confirmed, also independently, that our AI software is complete and sufficient for beneficially high levels of autonomy and automatic self-navigation. Now, with several domestic firms actively engaging us in either acquisition and/or joint venture discussions, we now have even more substance to our long held belief that 'it is time' for truly cost effective and utilitarian mobile service robots," observed Martin Spencer, president/CEO, GeckoSystems.
Kidela.com recently wrote an article on the entrepreneurial history of the company.
ZMP of Japan, an established vendor of robotic research platforms, has confirmed that the navigation system used in the BaseBot is "sophisticated" and "fully developed."
Research and Markets recently identified GeckoSystems as one of eight "key market players" along side Honda, iRobot, Sony, Toyota, and others.
This attention has brought inquiries about joint ventures and possible acquisitions from companies in many different fields. Some of the opportunities being investigated include the SafePath wheelchair, professional health care assistance, vehicle navigation -- both off road and on, manufacture of unmanned vehicles -- both air and ground, and commercial security applications.
GeckoSystems' SafePath AI navigation solution is portable and universal. It works with virtually any locomotion system and can be adapted to use the data from whatever sensor constellation is best suited to the application. SafePath collision avoidance and directional navigation is superior to any system on the market and it eliminates the need to attempt to "reinvent the wheel" so that robotic enhanced products can be brought to the market quickly.
