Gopher Protocol Inc. Receives Notice of Allowance for its Licensed Patent Covering Tracking Devices Patent

San Diego, CA, May 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GOPHER PROTOCOL INC. (GOPH) ("Gopher"), a technology company which specializes in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled mobile technologies, announced that its licensed patent, which it holds as an exclusive licensee from Dr. Danny Rittman (“The patent”), was “allowed” by the US Patent and Trademark Office on May 2, 2018 covers tracking devices, systems and methods using patches with embedded electronic circuits.

This patent describes an electronic tracking device system that is contained entirely on a “sticky patch” package, called The Guardian Patch. The “allowed” status indicates that the IP is now protected and it will be assigned a patent within approximately three to six months.

The Guardian Patch is a communications device that is self-adhesive and can be affixed to any object in order to track it anywhere on the planet.  The Guardian Patch, when incorporated into a network, can track an object’s movements, in real time, at any location in the world, indoors, outdoors and underground.

The electronic system includes a network connection for communicating with other, similar systems in a mesh network using radio spectrum, computers, and mobile devices, including the Internet. The electronic circuit within the patch transmits signals to enable tracking anywhere on Earth – with or without GPS services. The system can store the affixed object’s details for identification purposes on mobile tracking apps. The system includes its own power source that is expected to last one year.

Gopher is concurrently deploying the technology into the Guardian Orb Product as a “proof of concept” that the proprietary technology can be commercialized. The Company intends to integrate improvements and lessons learned through the deployment of the Orb into the Patch and will then seek commercial deployment.
