GEMINI TM The Autonomous Robot by Arctec Systems -

The Gemini is the self-navigating, self-charging, multiple-processor-based, life size robot with built-in artificial intelligence operating system, speech recognition, speech synthesis, environmental sensors and a computer controlled propulsion system.

The Gemini represented a breakthrough in 80's robotics, and has two types of sensor systems, nine Polaroid ultrasonic sonars and contact bumpers monitored by the propulsion computer. Intelligence was provided by its three on-board computers. One was for the artificial intelligence, one for voice/speech recognition and speech synthesis/text-to-speech, and the other for propulsion control. All computers were CMOS chip devices. Speech recognition and text-to-speech are products which enabled the Gemini to respond to voice commands. Coded infrared room beacons supplemented navigation. The robot is able to see the infrared beacons and interpret the code to determine its location. A scheduler interface was provided to schedule tasks for the robot. This was accessed with the internal keyboard and onboard display provided with the robot. The emini supported a radio-frequency link to a desktop unit.
