GeckoSystems’ GeckoImager Improves Mobile Robot Navigation

GeckoSystems, global leader in mobile robotics, has enhanced the functionality and safety of GeckoNav, their branded software for mobile robot navigation. The company has released a new software version termed as GeckoImager.

Martin Spencer, CEO of GeckoSystems, has stated that the latest GeckoImager is their fifth generation CompoundedSensorArray and it is 5 to 10 times quicker than its previous versions. He mentioned that GeckoImager enables them to reduce system cost by 50%, enhance performance and bring down total power consumption. He said that the software utilizes ultrasonic range determination and sensor fusion incorporating structured light machine vision. He added that as mentioned by others, 2011 will be recognized as the 'Year of the Personal Robot’.

According to Kevin O'Connor, Sr. EE Roboticist of Research and Development, GeckoSystems, GeckoImager provides far superior data than fixed sensors. He mentioned that it also involves reduced cost factor when compared to scanning laser range determining systems, which are commonly in use.

Traditional video centric machine vision systems are highly expensive, consumes more time and power. The first generation CompoundedSensorArray utilized infrared and ultrasonic range finders, which are combined using artificial intelligence methods. The latest CompoundedSensorArray features structured light machine vision integrated with both sonar and GeckoOrient in a biological architecture, offering enhanced performance at a reduced cost.
