If your vehicle is reported stolen, an alert can be sent to the electronic license plate to display “stolen” on the E-ink display for other motorists to see. Once the alert is activated on the electronic license plate, the device will begin to send out a geolocation signal. This will help police and the owner of the vehicle to pinpoint the exact location of the vehicle in real-time. With the geolocation tracking info, a stolen vehicle can be recovered within hours instead of days.
The electronic license plate is packed with other exciting features, such as Amber Alert, geofencing, automatic parking validation, telematics and more. Our electronic license plate is poised to redefine the license plate as we know it and help to elevate one's driving experience.
The CEO of Vizrom had submitted two patent applications with the USPO regarding the electronic license plate. The applications were submitted on his name, because the company had not been formally formed at the time of the application. The utility provisional patent is pending while a decision has not been made on the non-provisional design patent yet. While the process has not started yet, however, the two patents will be transferred to the company at a later date.
If the two patent applications are approved and the transfer of the patents to the company is completed, this will greatly increase the viability of the idea and lead to the expansion of the company. Among other benefits, the transfer of the patent ownership to the company will also secure the technology advantage of the company over its competitors.
Since license plates are regulated, respective states will have to pass laws to authorize the use of electronic license plates in their states. California already has a law in place, while other states are in the process of doing so. Since we are based in Birmingham, Alabama, and we are currently working with the state's agencies, regulatory authorities, and the DMV to pass a similar law.
