SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 7, 2016) - Gopher Protocol Inc. (
As announced on May 10, 2016, the Company has already commenced its field tests for transmitting and receiving signals in central North America. After successfully completing stage one of range testing of the Patch wireless system, the Company continues to expand its wireless system field testing in both crowded urban and open areas within the United States.
Gopher's Research and Development team (through Guardian Patch, LLC) is now working on the integration of the Company's global tracking electronic device through a manufacturing prototype preliminarily named, "The Guardian Patch". The integration is primarily for its electronic circuitry and software system. The electronic component is consisted of a proprietary radio system (including a proprietary antenna), the GPS chipset and a micro-controller/microprocessor to operate the system. The software system is consisted of an internet-based application, a server program and a mobile app (iOS and Android platforms) that are working in full synchronization with both programs.
The creation of the electronic and software components is successfully completed and tested and are fully operational individually according to their specifications. Gopher's R&D team is currently working to integrate both systems to produce the complete Guardian Patch system to provide a global, real time tracking feature.
The Company has made the first version of its Guardian Map application available to the general public, which can be downloaded for free at the Apple Store under the name "Guardian Patch". This version of the Guardian Map provides users with a demonstration of individually-owned patches "in motion" as they move around the continental United States. In the coming days, this version of the application will also be made available for Android users and will be downloadable on Google Play.
"This is an exciting moment for all of us." said Danny Rittman, Gopher CTO. "This is the time when all of our engineering efforts are focused on giving life to our evolved "baby". We are working days and nights to assemble, operate, debug and test our integrated system in order to bring it to life as soon as possible. We are a company of visionary engineers and scientists which envisions a totally connected smart-world based on our mobile technologies to extends human ability and help people do things they never thought possible. Innovation should not rest and neither do we!"
Integration and massive testing procedures are currently in high gear, including regression tests. Without unforeseen delays, a fully-integrated working prototype system is expected to be fully-operational by the third quarter of 2016.
About Guardian Patch
The Guardian Patch (the "Patch"), potentially arriving in consumer markets in 2017, is a unique location technology that works with or without GPS. The Patch is a stick-on device that provides its users with the capability to protect and track objects, a loved-one or even a pet, via a mobile application. Download the Patch app, register your patch, and track anything that you own on your mobile device or on our designated website. Register the Patches of your family members and friends to receive alerts in the event of an emergency. Peel the Patch off and the Patch acts as a beacon, sending out a signal and notifying anyone who has registered the user's Patch.
