ATLANTA, GA – Sept. 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — GeckoSystems, Inc. (www.Geckosystems.com), a leading developer of mobile robot solutions based in Conyers, Georgia, today announced the launch of the CareBot(TM) MSR 3.4, a revolutionary servant class personal robot designed specifically for eldercare, childcare and home security.
“After 8 years of development by many talented and tenacious engineers and programmers, we are very excited to introduce our new CareBot Mobile Service Robot,” said R. Martin Spencer, President and CEO of GeckoSystems, Inc. “The CareBot(TM) MSR 3.4 can watch over grandma or the kids, patrol your home, and/or run errands for 12 to 24 hours continuously without recharging. This capability, along with web-based video conferencing enables our CareBot to perform much like a family caregiver, letting them watch over their loved ones, even when they can’t be there.”
GeckoSystems recently developed GeckoTrak(TM) hardware and software enables the CareBot to automatically follow grandma from room to room. GeckoChat(TM) tells her when it’s time to take her medications, and even reminds her when her favorite television show is coming on.
GeckoChat(TM) is a specially designed assistive technology that enables caregivers to teach the CareBot what to say, and when. It can be programmed verbally or through an easy to use desktop application. When setting up GeckoChat(TM), the user can create a distinctive personality for the CareBot by choosing from a variety of tones and cadences ranging from gentle to firm, from timid to teasing, and by choosing characteristic words and phrases, making the CareBot a truly unique and personalized home robot that can fit comfortably into any family.
The CareBot(TM) MSR 3.4 stands approximately 4 feet tall, with locomotion motors capable of moving the MSR about with grace and ease. The internal GeckoFrame(TM) is lightweight aluminum for low weight, longer battery life and increased safety. Every CareBot system comes complete with a three-day training intensive package for the end user which includes round trip airfare within the continental U.S., meals, and three nights lodging at a quality hotel near the GeckoSystems’s training labs.
The cost of a CareBot MSR 3.4, excluding applicable sales tax, is $19,950.00 and comes complete with a 1 year parts and labor guarantee on all electronic and mechanical hardware, as well as a 1 year, no obsolescence guarantee with free software upgrades.
GeckoSystems, Inc. will be publicly introducing and demonstrating the CareBot MSR 3.4 at the International Robots & Vision Show and Conference, September 27-29, in the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont (Chicago), IL.
