Canadian patent coverage extends the footprint of PPL’s Drone-on-Demand offering across North America; common/standardized geofence-based approach to BVLOS enables all manners of UAV/UAM applications across Enterprise, Government and Consumer verticals, worldwide.
AUSTIN, Texas – Feb. 19, 2021 – PRLog — PicPocket-Labs (“PicPocket” or “PPL”) is pleased to announce that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office for “DRONE BASED SYSTEMS AND METHODOLOGIES FOR CAPTURING IMAGES” (Patent Application No. 2,971,254.)
The patent family pertains to a “drone-on-demand” service which allows a user to send or request an unmanned autonomous vehicle (UAV) to a location or a target of interest (stationary or moving) for, among other purposes, inspection/mapping, media/data capture, urban air mobility and/or drone deliveries. Combined with PicPocket’s seminal, geofencing patents (and pending applications), the ability to assume control over a UAV (its navigation, media/data capture, resident drone hardware, etc.) within a specific geographic area (or ‘geofence’), is fundamental to advance a beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) service.
“The use of drones in insurance, first-responder networks, agriculture, infrastructure inspection, connected stadiums and live-events is big business – estimated to exceed over $120B by this time next year. As companies large and small embrace drones to help streamline their operations and deliver new services, there’s no telling to what extent drones will play a role in almost every industry,” states Gauglitz. “But what is certain is that good corporate citizens will adhere to those best practices which emphasize privacy and custodianship when operating drones to serve Government and Enterprise markets.”
PicPocket-Labs, Inc. is an early pioneer in geofencing-based IT solutions with offices in Austin and Dallas, TX. The company is actively seeking strategic-customer-partners among drone manufacturers, global and regional telecommunications players and UTM and UAM service providers operating in the Americas, Asia and Europe.
