The automotive industry continues to make headlines as new entrants seize the opportunity to create tomorrow’s vehicles infused with connected technology and advanced intelligence systems. This has also intensified the focus on automotive cyber security and will be a catalyst for new technologies, such as those being financed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Expanding to Asia is one of our focus areas and we are honored that the Shobayashi Intellectual Property Law has joined the Innovation Hub offering insights into one of the world’s greatest innovation ecosystems.

DHS funded SkySight Technologies has developed a mechanism to prevent telephone pole failure during our more frequent storms and DMQ’s advanced MEMS technology enables more efficient vehicle, aviation and appliance systems.

AutoHarvest’s Intellectual Property Marketplace and Innovation Hub continue to add IP opportunities and curate useful Smart-tools, helping innovators and commercilizers build the future. Our roster of industry expos has expanded and we hope to see you at one of these outstanding conferences.

As always, we invite all readers to join our intellectual property marketplace, free of charge, and engage the community. Join and move One-Click-Closer® to being our next success story.
