Vizrom: The License Plate Redefined

Invest in Vizrom

Vizrom is developing electronic license plates to automate license plate renewal and to generate real-time driving data.


Vizrom electronic license plates are designed to electronically display DMV-issued registration numbers using E-paper. Using either a mobile app or an online account, users will be able to automate the renewal of their license plate. The car industry has, in its history, gone through periods of enormous, rapid change. The assembly line made cars available to everyone, and the automatic transmission made it easier to safely operate a vehicle. Now, with data, there is connected mobility, and in the very near future, a fully autonomous vehicle. All of these changes are happening around the cars we drive, yet, the metal license plate remains the same. 


Since the metal license plate was first introduced in the United States in 1901, it has not changed much. We believe now is the time for the metal license plate to get an extreme makeover. Vizrom is transforming the license plate as we know it from metal to digital.


If the cars of tomorrow are designed to be intelligent and connected, why then, do we still use the metal registration number plates that were invented in the 18th century? This question is what Vizrom has set out to answer.


Our solution is an electronic license plate designed to electronically display your DMV-issued vehicle registration number using an E-ink display. With our electronic license plate, a user will be able to automate the renewal of their license plate without the need to go to the DMV. The renewal process involves either using an online account or a mobile app. Once the renewal process is completed, verified, and approved by the DMV, the renewal information will automatically be updated on the electronic license plate using LTE wireless communication.

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.

Our Ambition

At Vizrom, we’re working hard to redefine the license plate as we know it, add value to your driving experience, and maximize the potential locked within the electronic license plate as a platform to generate real-time driving data.

Emmanuel Umoh

Founder and CEO


Why Are We Doing This?

In the years to come, self-driving cars are poised to dramatically alter our driving experience as we know it today. Most of the cars currently being designed and soon to enter the roadways are designed to be connected and highly intelligent. This means that cars will be able to talk to one another. If the cars of tomorrow are designed to be intelligent and connected, why then do we still use the metal license plate that was invented in the 18th century? This question is what Vizrom has set out to answer.


The metal license plate has not experienced any significant changes since it was first introduced in the US in 1901. We believe it is time for it to be updated. The future of mobility is connected and data driven. The potential that lies within the license plate is huge and untapped. We want to tap into these potentials, and transform the license plate from potentially corrosive metal to a powerful, interactive device that does more than display a DMV-issued registration number, it also promotes a greener environment.

The following are some of the problems that motivated the development of our electronic license plate. 


  • States spend taxpayers' money to print license plate decals every month
  • Law enforcement personnel lack real-time data to track stolen vehicles
  • License plate decals can be stolen or illegally used on other vehicles
  • Insurance companies need real-time driving data to customize insurance premiums
  • The potential for the license plate as a data driven platform is huge but untapped
  • Metal license plates are potentially corrosive and not good for the environment. 

The solution we are providing to solve these problems is a powerful, interactive device that displays DMV-issued registration number electronically using E-paper. E-paper is a technology that mimics the appearance of ordinary ink on paper. The main advantages of E-paper over traditional LCD screens are paper-like readability and extremely low power consumption. In addition to automating the renewal of license plates, our electronic license plate will function as a powerful platform that integrates with other services to harness real-time driving data. These services include, insurance companies, law enforcement agencies, the DMV, and other IoT related companies.


We are developing an electronic license plate to elevate your driving experience.

Our Products

Our electronic license plate has the capability to do more than display your DMV-issued registration number. Other features include:

Automated License Plate Renewal: Our electronic license is packed with some exciting features. These include the option to automate the renewal of your license plate using a secure online portal or a mobile app. Once the renewal of your license plate is processed and completed by your respective state DMV, the information on your electronic license plate will be automatically updated using the available LTE network.


Stolen Alert: If your vehicle is stolen today, it is the information you provide to the police regarding the make and model of your vehicle that law enforcement will use to search for your stolen vehicle. With your electronic license plate, once we confirm that your vehicle is indeed stolen, an alert will be send to display “Stolen” on the screen of your electronic license plate. This allows anyone that sees the vehicle to call the police. A GPS capability that is embedded in the device will also be activated. This feature allows the owner of the stolen vehicle and law enforcement personnel topinpoint the location of the stolen vehicle in real-time. 


Telematics: This feature allows small and large businesses and government agencies with fleets of vehicles to use a single platform to collect and use vehicle data to effectively manage their fleets. This includes identifying the location of a particular vehicle using signals from GPS telematics, collecting data regarding the speed, odometer readings, engine oil pressure, and diagnostic trouble codes for particular vehicles. 


Driving Data: The driving data that is harvested from the electronic license plate over a period of time can be used to accurately personalize insurance premiums. Unlike using a human actuary to measure a risk factor for an individual policy holder, real-time driving data from the electronic license plate can enable the dynamic and more accurate assessment of risk for individual drivers based on the analysis of their real-time driving data.


Data Encryption: To protect the data that is transmitted between the electronic license plate and the cloud-based platform, 128-bit encryption will be used to protect the communication channel. This level of encryption will be on par with that of the financial institutions. 

Development Stage

Our electronic license plate is currently in the development stage. We have completed the development of our first prototype.The standard size for license plates in North America is 12 by 6. Our first prototype is not in this size, but on a different size. The reason is because the design and development of our custom size 12 by 6 E-paper display is not completed yet. Our second prototype will be developed with the custom size 12 by 6 to conform to the standard size license plates in North America. The completion of our second prototype will be followed by pilot testing to confirm the readiness of our device for mass production. After the pilot testing is completed, the next phase will be to mass produce our product. 


Our IP: The CEO of Vizrom had submitted two patent applications with the USPO regarding the electronic license plate. The applications were submitted under 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, 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.


Our Market: Since license plate are regulated, respective states will have to pass a law to authorize the use of electronic license plates in their state. Currently, three states have passed a law authorizing the use of electronic license plates. These are California, Arizona, and Michigan. These three states are our current market. The market is expected to continue to expand as a similar laws are passed in other states. 


Valid License Plate

With a valid registration license plate, your DMV issued registration number will appear. This includes two electronic stickers for the month and the year. While the registration number is tamper proof, you will be able to update the slogan with information of your choice. 

Expired License Plate

When your license plate expires, the stickers for the month and year will disappear. Prior to the expiration date, you will receive notifications on the 60th, 30th, and 7th dates before the expiration date. Once the registration number has been renewed, the stickers will reappear and the device updated with the renewal information.

Stolen Vehicle Alert

Once it has been confirmed that your vehicle has been stolen. Your license plate will be updated to display "Stolen." A GPS tracking feature will then be activated to send out location signal. This will help law enforcement personnel to pinpoint the location of the stolen vehicle in real time.

Amber Alert

Amber Alerts such as weather inclement, missing person alerts and other emergency information can be disseminated to the general public using the electronic license plate.

Automatic Parking Validation

With RFID embedded in your Vizrom smart license plate, when your vehicle approaches the parking gate, the RFID at the gate will detect the embedded RFID in your electronic license plate. The system authorizes you and opens the gate. Instead of having to open your window to tap the gate, you'll have a hand-free parking experience

Expired Parking

You won't have to run to the parking meter anymore to feed the meter. Before your allotted parking time expires, you will get a notification on your phone. You can extend the time and pay for your meter wherever you're without having to run to your car to feed the meter. 

Our Market and Industry

Target Market

What They Drive

At the initial entry into the US auto market, our focus is not on the entire market, but on a specific subset of the market. Our target market is US luxury vehicle owners. This segment of the US auto market often demands a higher price for providing excess features that go beyond the necessary considerations for normal use. We believe our electronic license plate will appeal to this segment of the market with it added features. Vizrom electronic license plates are not intended to replace metal license plates. Our device only supplements the existing product in the market and provides users with a better option beyond what is currently available. Other users will still be able to continue to use their current metal license plates.

Technology maturity and adoption curve


Our competitors are other companies in the electronic license plate market. While it is possible that other companies might be developing electronic license plates elsewhere without public knowledge, we are currently only aware of one company.


Strength: Our technology has the capability to partner with law enforcement agencies to enhance public safety. The one area where this partnership is possible is in sharing rea-time data with law enforcement agencies regarding stolen vehicles. Since our electronic license plate can provide real-time data to pinpoint the exact location of a stolen vehicle, this data can be shared with law enforcement agencies to speed up the recovery of a stolen vehicle within hours instead of days. 


Opportunity: From national expansion to expanding into the global market, these are some of the opportunities in the market for our company and our stakeholders. Our market is highly innovative. We plan to continue to iterate, research the market, and improve our product to better serve our loyal customers at a reduced cost. 

Weakness: Because the electronic license plate is a relatively new product, it requires extensive marketing and public awareness campaigns to educate the public about its usefulness. A well-developed marketing campaign to educate potential users and the general public about the importance of the electronic license plate over the metal one can potentially turn skeptics to adopters. 


Threat: This can potentially be overcome within the next few years as more states continue to pass laws authorizing the use of electronic license plate. However, state governments and their respective DMVs can still pose a threat to the rapid expansion of the electronic license plate. One way this is possible is through unnecessary delays in passing such laws or by implementing policies that limit the widespread use of the e-license plate within respective states.

Regarding the law to authorize the use of electronic license plate.

4 months ago

I wanted to share the update regarding our progress with the efforts to pass a law in the state of Alabama to authorize the use of electronic license plate.

Through the support of Senator Jabo Waggoner of Alabama District 12, who is assisting us with the progress, we’ve been to make some positive progress. After the senator agreed to take up the task of proposing the bill in the Alabama legislature, he told us that we will need the blessings of some of the agencies with regulatory authority over the DMV in the state. So far, we have met with and presented our idea to representatives from the Dept. of Revenue, the DMV and the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. They have separately informed us that they like our technology and will implement the law authorizing the use of electronic license plate in the state of Alabama once the law is passed.

As part of the process, another meeting is scheduled in the last week of January 2019. In attendance at the meeting will include, our team, Senator Jabo Waggoner, representatives from the Dept. of revenue, the DMV, and the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. The purpose of the meeting is for the senator to have a final agreement with all three agencies at the same time. They will also use the meeting to discuss any other concerns that may arise. They will be one more meeting between our team, the senator’s office and the chairman of the Alabama senate transportation committee. If everything goes according to plan, the introduction of the bill will follow.

More updates on this will come as we continue in the process.

Our first prototype is ready

4 months ago

I wanted to write to the community and provide a few updates regarding our development process.

I am happy to announce that we have completed the development of our first prototype. We started the process of developing the first prototype about 4 months ago. This was after we completed the testing of our proof of concept. Since we were developing the prototype in-house by our team of developers. We were faced with some challenges. Despite those challenges, our team pushed on. We are glad to touch and feel what was only an idea a few months ago. We are really excited to share this wonderful news with our community. We are even more excited that we built this first prototype without outsourcing any parts of the development process to an outside team of developer.

We know we still have a long way to go. The development process continues. But we are excited about the milestones we have completed so far. We are grateful for the support from the members of our community. For this, we say thank you! We will share some pictures and a video soon.  

Merry Christmas to everyone.
