GeckoSystems Intl. Corp (OTCMKTS:GOSY) has launched GeckoNED, a new mobile robot for public safety. GeckoNED is a Non-violent Enforcement Device, developed specifically for the growing number of mass shootings across the US. The robot has a high level of independent mobile autonomy and is equipped with sensors for enhanced situational awareness. Moreover, the robot can also be operated from a remote location, by designated public safety personnel. It should be noted here that GeckoSystems has over 19-years of experience developing robots for safety and security applications.

Initially, the company plans to deploy GeckoNED at schools, to deter, detect and contain threats to the children. The company has stated that the children and teachers could customize the robot, in such a way that it blends in with the day-to-day lives of the children. In addition to this, the robot is also equipped with SafePath mobile robot AI navigation software, which would allow it to patrol all wheelchair accessible areas, without the need for human oversight. However, all containment systems would require human intervention.

In addition to this, GeckoSystems also announced that it had signed an LOI with an advanced AI developer, in NYC. The letter LOI was a result of two years of negotiations with the developer and could potentially turn into the first US joint venture for the company. Martin Spencer, the CEO of GOSY, stated that he had met with the CEO of the other company and also signed an NDA and a MoU, to enable the two companies to use AI synergies developed by the other.

GOSY has also revealed that it plans to incorporate technology from the NYC developer, in the GeckoNED, making it even more situationally aware and autonomous. Moreover, the company plans to use these enhancements to deploy the robot in softer target locations, such as night clubs and other crowded areas.

GeckoSystems Intl. Corp (OTCMKTS:GOSY) experienced a trade volume of 5.63 million and gained 50.54%, during the August 11 trading session, to close at $0.014 per share.
