PERRIS, CA and POINT ROBERTS, WA--(Marketwired - April 28, 2016) - Investorideas.com, a global news source covering tech stocks interviews Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (GOPH) to learn about its licensed technology, the Guardian Patch, aiming to hit consumer markets in 2017.
The Guardian Patch, under development, is a unique location technology that works with or without GPS. It is a stick-on tracking device that protects and tracks everything from a phone to a loved-one or a pet. Danny shares its history, current status and how the Guardian Patch could potentially save your life in the future.
Q: Investorideas.com: Danny, for investors that have no previous knowledge of your company and technology can briefly you tell us the history of the Guardian Patch and how your company came to license this technology?
A: Danny Rittman, CTO - The Guardian Patch device was born as a derivative of our microchip technology called GopherInsight™. Gopher Protocol is developing under exclusive license granted by me, mobile, intelligent technology that connects mobile devices via its private, secured communication protocol in order to provide advanced features. The Guardian Patch is based on that technology. Each Guardian Patch device is connected to all others via its private, secured protocol. The device is affixed onto objects, mobile or static and once affixing, starts its operation as a tracking device.
The user installs the Guardian app in order to track the Guardian Patch via mapping feature. The Guardian Patch uses GPS coordinates when GPS services are available. In places where GPS services are not available, it automatically switches to its own proprietary based technology in order to obtain its geographical location and send it through its network. For the user these activities are transparent. The Guardian Patch geographical location is shown on Google/Yahoo/Bing map regardless which method is used.
One Guardian Patch can be registered on multiple apps via its ID. In this way, multiple users can view a location of an object(s).
The Guardian Patch also works as an Emergency beacon. Upon detaching, it start transmitting Emergency signal about its location to all apps that it is registered on.
The Guardian Patch is designed to function for one full year. Upon detaching and functioning as an Emergency beacon, the Patch will constantly transmit its location until exhausting its battery life same as aircraft's black boxes system.
Q: Investorideas.com: Can you explain how the Guardian Patch tracking works?
A: Danny Rittman, CTO - The Guardian Patch uses GPS coordinates when GPS services are available. In places where GPS services are not available, it automatically switches to its own proprietary based technology to obtain its geographical location and sending it through its network. For the user these activities are transparent. All he/she sees is the moving dot of the object on Guardian mapping app. The system is based among other confidential features on a proprietary RF (Radio Frequency) technology and ultimately providing worldwide coverage. The main advantage of the system is the fact that it is conventional-network independent. It does not require conventional network like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or others.
Q: Investorideas.com: And what about the pull- off emergency sticker in case of emergency?
A: Danny Rittman, CTO - The Guardian Patch also works as an Emergency beacon. Upon detaching, it starts transmitting Emergency signal about its location to all apps that it is registered on. Typically the Guardian Patch transmits its location every few minutes but in the Emergency beacon mode it will constantly transmit its geographical location until exhausting its power source, similar to aircraft's black box. The system has reserved power source just for emergency beacon purposes in order to ensure constant Emergency transmission for about 2-3 weeks. It can save lives!
Q: Investorideas.com: Can you explain how the Guardian Patch works with or without GPS and how that is a game-changer?
A: Danny Rittman, CTO - The Guardian Patch detects when a GPS services exist and then acquire its geographical location. These coordinates are transmitted via its proprietary Radio technology to the user's mobile app to be presented on Guardian mapping app. If GPS services are not available due to topological conditions, for example, caves, tunnels, closed locations, the system automatically switches to its proprietary radio system in order to calculate and provide its location. Our technology works in most obscure topographical locations like underwater, underground and even outer space.
Q: Investorideas.com: Can you tell us the current status and development and what is needed next to bring it to market?
A: Danny Rittman, CTO - The Guardian Patch is currently in the hardware and software implementation stage. In parallel we are working on the product's logistics of packaging, mass production and distribution. We aim to release commercial full first generation by Easter of 2017.
Q: Investorideas.com: Is there anything out in the marketplace like the Guardian Patch? What makes this truly unique?
A: Danny Rittman, CTO - The Guardian Patch is the first technology of its kind. There are GPS based vehicles and many, short range, Bluetooth based, tracking devices in the market today. The tracking devices which using GPS are limited and need to have "clear skies" above. They are also require complicate installation and costly. The short-range, Bluetooth based devices can provide short range (Few dozen feet) tracking only. The Guardian Patch is the first and the only device that is not GPS-dependent or Bluetooth and provides long range coverage. Its price is affordable and its size/shape make him perfect device to be used for many tracking applications. Users can use it to track vehicles, small or large valuables and virtually anything!
