ResGreen’s LilBuddy uses Robot Operating System (ROS) to improve integration of components and simulate the AMR in different environments

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, MI, Sept. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ResGreen Group International, Inc. (OTC Pink: RGGI), a next-gen mobile robot and software solutions company, announced today its LilBuddy autonomous mobile robot (AMR) is using Robot Operating System (ROS), an open-source software development kit, to enable seamless integration with hardware components and software systems. The team is also testing LilBuddy’s lidar mapping system, sensors and navigation capabilities in a ROS-powered simulator.

For over ten years, ROS has helped developers across industries develop and build robots, from research and prototyping to deployment and production. It’s currently featured in thousands of mobile robots that are working inside warehouses and plants from a variety of AMR manufacturers. ROS also supports numerous hardware interfaces, making it easy for engineers to integrate LilBuddy’s components, including cameras, lidars and motor controllers.

“In addition to speeding up the development of LilBuddy, ROS has been a huge help in addressing supply chain issues,” said Parsh Patel, CEO at ResGreen. “If a particular component is on backorder or too expensive, our engineers can easily swap it out with a component from a different manufacturer, giving them multiple vendor options. ROS allows us to keep costs down and ensure quick delivery for our customers.”

ResGreen engineers recently virtually tested LilBuddy with ROS by creating a simulation of the AMR mapping its environment using natural feature SLAM guidance. They created a ROS model of LilBuddy, often called a digital twin, and inserted it in an environment that included ramps, other robots, walls, trash cans and shelving. The LilBuddy digital twin and its control software reacted and generated data in the same way it would in real life. This simulation feature can help plan vehicle routes, make design changes, assist with quality assurance and train customers.

ROS 2, the latest version, is supported and tested on Linux, Windows, and macOS, as well as various embedded platforms (via micro-ROS).

The SmartMetric Biometric Credit and Debit Card is Unique and Protected by …

NEW YORK, September 21, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME): Goode Intelligence, a London based research company has listed the following companies as Biometric Smart card Vendors. Zwipe, CardLab, Card Tech, Feitian, Jinco, Linxens, Kona I, MeReal Biometrics, NXP and SmartMetric.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220921005869/en/

The SmartMetric biometric card is protected by issued patents that in its view would prohibit other biometric card companies from entering, in particular, the United States market.

It is our understanding that SmartMetric is the only Biometric Smart Card designed for credit and debit cards that uses a separate secure encrypted processor for storing a person’s fingerprint inside the credit or debit card. Because SmartMetric does not use the smartcard chip, or what is referred to in the credit card industry as the EMV chip, for storing a person’s fingerprint, the SmartMetric biometric card has a number of distinct advantages over the others.

The SmartMetric biometric card allows for simple and frictionless fingerprint enrollment. Because it is not using the EMV/Smartcard chip to store the fingerprint it does not need a separate reader to capture the person’s fingerprint for storage inside the Biometric card. In the case of credit and debit cards, other companies’ biometric cards need the person to go into a bank branch to have their fingerprint captured and stored into the card using a special fingerprint reader. This is highly inconvenient for the public and of course impracticable in credit card markets such as the United States where the vast majority of new credit cards issued to customers are sent out via the mail.

Since SmartMetric uses a separate processor and fingerprint storage inside the card for users’ fingerprints, credit card and debit card customers do not need to go into, say, a bank branch to have their fingerprint enrolled and stored inside the biometric card. The SmartMetric solution allows for a simple enrollment of the fingerprint on the card much the same and as easy as one would store fingerprint biometrics onto a mobile phone – no special reader needed. Just like the mobile phone with its built-in fingerprint scanner, the SmartMetric biometric card itself is used for capturing and storing a persons fingerprint. A simple process of touching the sensor a few times, a solid green LED light indicates successful fingerprint enrollment and the new card holder’s fingerprint is forever stored inside the SmartMetric biometric card.

“We know of no other biometric card developed for use by banks and large-scale credit card issuers that has created such an easy and intuitive at-home fingerprint enrollment on the card as that developed by SmartMetric,” said today SmartMetric’s President and CEO Chaya Hendrick.

“We are excited about our now moving forward with our card in association with card issuing banks here in the United States. The company, being a USA based company, is concentrating its first product release in the United States in association with a significant credit card issuer that is now in discussions with SmartMetric for release and issuing to the public of its unique advanced biometric credit and debit card,” said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric has been supported by private investing shareholders during its long product development stage. Over recent times the company received funding from a source via what is commonly referred to as convertible notes. The company has no idea how many shares may or may not have been converted under these prior notes.

Recently in the company’s filings it has been disclosed that the company has had four professional investment funds provide a round of funding while at the same time the company registered, via an S1, additional shares.

An agreement is in place to provide for up to $5 million in draw down funding via S1 registration with the largest of these funds.

The company is very thankful for the funding support it has received from its shareholders over the years and is very thankful for the funds who have now provided cash to allow the company to move rapidly forward with the execution of its biometric card business into the market.

“SmartMetric has no plans to do a stock split. We trust that the company will be valued accurately on the market as it moves forward with the execution of its business,” said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric is the only USA based Biometric Credit Card company and has current manufacturing capacity to supply United States card issuing Banks with more than a million cards a month.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multibillion existing chip-based credit and debit card market. Figures published by EMVCo reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV® chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.

SmartMetric, the Creator of Biometric Credit Cards, Is Pleased to Announce …

NEW YORK, September 20, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME): The introduction of a unique and novel new card into the credit card world is a complex process requiring approvals for the product to be able to operate over a global payments network that interconnects with in store card readers and ATMs for credit and debit cards.

SmartMetric is dealing with one of the largest of the top three global payments networks on moving the SmartMetric through their approval process. This has understandably been a long process as our card with its built inside-the-card biometric fingerprint scanning function is beyond the normal cards that are approved by the network for card manufacturers.

“We are pleased to say that we are now in the final process where our card only now needs to be tested as to the card body itself and now does not require any further assessment on its biometric functionality,” said SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

“As a company, we could not be more pleased with the supportive dealings we have had with this major credit card network and are excited to be moving forward to the last stage for our card to obtain approval for its use on their network,” said Chaya Hendrick.

Now that SmartMetric has been cleared to submit its card in what is expected to be the final step in its network approvals process, the company is now able to complete its card production. Up until now there was a lot of back and forth on what EMV payments chip we could use on our card but thankfully that has now been resolved which gives us the ability to finish off our manufacturing in compliance with the credit card network.

SmartMetric has all of its components now at its electronics assembler and will within a couple of weeks be moving forward with presentation of our card for final testing. This testing is for testing of the card body itself which is separate from its biometric electronic function. The last and quick process that will at the end of the day allow SmartMetric to provide its finally approved card to card issuing banks around the world.

The SmartMetric biometric in-the-card security uses a card holder’s fingerprint biometrics to identify the card user and turn on the card as it is being inserted into a card reader or ATM. A sensor is on the top of the card and is simply touched by the user as they reach across to insert their card in a reader. In less than a second the card holders’ fingerprint is scanned and matched with their pre-stored in the card fingerprint which in turn activates the card for a transaction.

SmartMetric is the only USA based Biometric Credit Card company and has current manufacturing capacity to supply United States card issuing Banks with more than a million cards a month.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multibillion existing chip-based credit and debit card market. Figures published by EMVCo reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV® chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, MI, Sept. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ResGreen Group International, Inc. (OTC Pink: RGGI), a next-gen mobile robot and software solutions company, announced today it has enhanced its simulation capabilities for its leading BotWay interoperable software. BotWay can create a digital twin of a system, as well as virtual assets of its automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) and industrial automation devices, to simulate operation before a system is installed. The simulation can determine the number of vehicles needed, route configuration, charging station placement, traffic management, triggering and more.

“One of the main questions we get from customer is what the throughput of their system will be when it’s up-and-running,” said Parsh Patel, CEO of ResGreen. Simulation helps us predict how our products will act in various scenarios. Through BotWay, we replicate real-life situations such as traffic stops and obstacles in the vehicles paths to identify potential problems and minimize risk and cost.”

ResGreen engineers use simulation to detect potential congestion issues, configure vehicle routes and station locations and test traffic stops.

“BotWay’s simulation capabilities is an invaluable tool that helps us ensure we are delivering the best results for our customers,” said Sarah Carlson, Vice President of Marketing Communications at ResGreen. “Because the simulation feature is built into our BotWay software, we offer it at a fraction of the cost of other companies.”

In existing systems, virtual tags or waypoints can be generated by BotWay to designate locations where an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) needs to pass by or perform a specific task. Because they are virtual, installation of a physical object is not required. In addition, ResGreen recently completed a virtual commissioning of a small project for a customer. saving the company a substantial amount of time and money.

SmartMetric Biometric Credit Card Brings the Next Generation of High Securi…

NEW YORK, September 14, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME): Taking security for credit and debit cards to the next level, SmartMetric has created a nano biometric fingerprint scanner that sits inside the credit card which is used to confirm that the person using the card is the legitimate card holder.

“We are very confident that our card will be adopted in the United States market as it is the only biometric credit card that can be used across all classes of card readers from retail outlets to ATMs,” said SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

The company is working closely with a major global credit and debit card brand and payments network in order for the SmartMetric next generation biometric card to be operative on their vast global retail and ATM payments network.

Because the SmartMetric biometric card works without the need to be inserted into a reader and because it has its own internal rechargeable miniature hybrid battery, the SmartMetric biometric card is the only biometric card that can work at the vast majority of ATMs.

“The user’s fingerprint is stored inside the card using a separate secure processor to what is used for the payments processing processor, adding another layer of security for the protection of the card user’s own biometrics while providing maximum function for the card,” said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric contracted an independent market research company that conducted a survey of Visa credit card holders in the USA. This research showed that over 60% of existing credit card holders in the USA are willing to purchase a biometric credit card for an added sense of security.

The majority of survey respondents said they would be willing to pay $69.00 for a biometric secured credit card. Surveying whether or not they would be willing to pay a higher amount such as $90.00 or $150.00 a card was not done. However, with over 60% saying they would pay $69.00 for such a card, this if converted into consumer buying and adoption of the SmartMetric biometric card would see a possible take up in the USA alone exceeding 100 million cards.

“Given the responses to the consumer survey which also documented the high level of concern consumers have surrounding payments security, we believe that the first card issuing bank to adopt the SmartMetric biometric card will be able to attract significant market share away from traditional credit cards and their issuers,” said Chaya Hendrick.

It is estimated that there are over 200 million credit and debit cards issued in the United States.

The SmartMetric biometric in-the-card security uses a card holder’s fingerprint biometrics to identify the card user and turn on the card as it is being inserted into a card reader or ATM. A sensor is on the top of the card and is simply touched by the user as they reach across to insert their card in a reader. In less than a second the card holder’s fingerprint is scanned and matched with their pre-stored in the card fingerprint which in turn activates the card for a transaction.

SmartMetric is the only USA based Biometric Credit Card company and has current manufacturing capacity to supply United States card issuing Banks with more than a million cards a month.

Figures published by EMVCo3 reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV® chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.

SmartMetric Says 69% of Financial Fraud Victims Become Fearful Regarding Th…

NEW YORK, September 06, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) – When it comes to damage to a card issuing bank caused by financial fraud such as credit card theft, the damage goes far beyond the immediate financial loss for both the bank and the bank’s card customers.

When asked how being a fraud victim made them feel, consumers respondents (69%) said they felt fear regarding their personal financial security. An even larger number felt frustration and annoyance (81%), while those who felt rage or anger was (58%).

These figures show that the emotions surrounding financial fraud are serious and significant in the minds of the bank’s customers when they become credit card fraud victims. The damage to the bank’s brand and customer relationship stemming from a card fraud instance, based on these research figures, is extremely serious.

“The economic cost as a consequence for a card issuing bank when it comes to fraud can be longer lasting and more costly than the immediate losses from the fraud instance,” said SmartMetric’s President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric has created a biometric protected credit card that provides a safer card payment experience for card issuers’ customers. The SmartMetric credit card has an inbuilt fingerprint scanner that reads the card user’s fingerprint and activates the card’s EMV chip as it is being inserted into a retail card reader or ATM. Only the legitimate card holder can use the card.

According to consumer research commissioned by SmartMetric, 80% of card users are concerned about card fraud and identity theft. The same research of credit card holders showed that 68% of credit card holders would pay for a biometric credit card.

SmartMetric is offering its card to credit card issuing banks, who will in turn offer the new biometric card to their customers who are looking for greater protection.

According to figures released by the credit card standards body EMVco, more than 10 billion EMV Chip cards have been now issued by financial institutions around the world. The SmartMetric biometric technology works with existing these EMV chips and existing chip card readers and ATMs.

ABOUT THE SMARTMETRIC BIOMETRIC CARD: Keeping your biometric identity safe is at the center of the design of the SmartMetric biometric card. At no time does a card holder’s fingerprint leave the card. A person’s fingerprint is stored inside the card and matching of the person’s fingerprint is done on the card itself. This was a central design requirement of the SmartMetric biometric card solution that necessitated SmartMetric to create a self-powered inside the card, fully functional fingerprint scanner. Also, so that the card could be used at ATMs and POS (Point Of Sale) card readers the SmartMetric development team created an on card miniature power management system that recharges the card as it is being used in card readers.

SmartMetric Says Its Biometric User Fingerprint Credit Card Stands to Save …

NEW YORK, September 02, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) biometric fingerprinted activated credit card is the world’s only biometric card that includes a state of the art miniature hybrid solid state rechargeable battery along with a sophisticated hardware solution that distinguishes between a live human fingerprint from a fake one.

The more advanced SmartMetric biometric credit card is being readied for submission to one of the world’s largest credit card networks for operating approval on its network.

Discussions are being held with a major credit card issuer in the United States for distribution to the public of the leading next generation biometric credit card created by SmartMetric.

The SmartMetric biometric fingerprint activated credit card is coming to market in the light of alarming figures showing that businesses are suffering monumental losses due to online, and at check out, fraud. What is so alarming is that the rate of growth in online fraud for merchants is in triple figures with loses for chargebacks alone being estimated to reach $30 Billion in the United States.

Chargebacks are where the credit card user amongst other things, denies making the card purchase or says they never received the goods. It is estimated that 86% of this $30 billion in “chargebacks” or to be more precise, transaction reversals, are based on fraudulent misrepresentations by the card user.

“Using the SmartMetric biometric credit card that only allows the legal card holder to use the card, protects card users, merchants, card processors and card issuing banks with state-of-the-art biometric technology built inside the credit card,” said SmartMetric’s President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

The SmartMetric biometric credit and debit card developed by SmartMetric, uses the cardholder’s fingerprint which is read by a Nano fingerprint scanner inside the card, to turn on the card prior to insertion into the card reader or ATM. The cardholder’s biometrics are protected since their fingerprint is stored inside their card and never leaves the card at any time. Only the authorized holder of the SmartMetric biometric credit and debit card can use the card.

Further information on the SmartMetric biometric credit card is available on the company website at www.smartmetric.com

SmartMetric Update on Its Global Payments Network Compliant Biometric Credi…

NEW YORK, August 24, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) is pleased to announce that it has been able to address a compliance change required by the global payments network the company is working with for the worldwide release of its biometric credit card.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220824005658/en/

There are four large global payments networks with two of these four accounting for the vast majority of global credit card transactions. The payments networks are the interconnect medium that connects credit card readers in stores and gas pumps as well as ATMs. For clarification these payments networks do not issue cards themselves but do have their respective brand names on the credit cards that are issued by banks and card issuing institutions.

All credit cards that operate over the payments networks need to be approved of by the payments network before a bank is able to issue the credit card to its customers.

The two largest credit card payments networks are Visa and MasterCard. Card issuers and card manufacturers must gain permission from the card payments networks prior to a card being manufactured and then issued to the public for the card to operate over either of these companies’ payments networks.

SmartMetric has been working with one of the largest global payments networks in order to have its biometric card meet the network’s licensing and functional requirements so that its biometric card can then be used by card issuing banks around the world.

One of the most recent issues that SmartMetric faced was the need to change its EMV chip used in its card. The licensing and approving network required that SmartMetric adopt a different EMV credit card chip for its product approval. The EMV chip is the credit card chip is the square chip found on the top surface of what is called chip credit cards. As an aside, there are more than 10 billion1 chip cards issued globally.

The required change of our EMV chip created a supply chain issue since the acquisition of a replacement was being quoted for delivery into mid to late 2023. Luckily for SmartMetric, our supplier is now quoting approximately 10 weeks for supply of this critical component for our biometric credit card. Just like other areas of the electronics parts world, credit card payments chips are in huge demand and have long lead times for supply.

While no one is pleased to suffer supply chain delays we are extremely pleased with our supportive chip supplier and are excited with us moving ever closer to the release of our payments network-conforming new biometric credit card, said today SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

Bringing a brand-new type of credit card into existence that meets the approval and licensing requirements of the credit card industry is no small feat. However, we are excited with the incredible prospects for the company as we move forward with our amazing next generation credit card with built in biometric fingerprint security, said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multibillion existing chip-based credit and debit card market. Figures published by EMVCo reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV® chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.
