US Patent Awarded
US Patent granted to TracknStop Limited
The team at TracknStop are truly delighted to announce our US Patent was awarded (Patent Number: 9,630,590).
This follows on from our successful Irish Patent (Number: S86671) awarded in July 2016.
TracknStop has been working with both private and commercial vehicle owners giving them the ability to control their vehicles’ security.
Utilizing both sophisticated GPS technology and highly specialized software the TracknStop™ solution enables vehicle and fleet managers to TRACK, DISABLE and even STOP a moving vehicle.
We allow vehicle owners to securely send a ‘stop’ command to any TracknStop™ fitted vehicle. This command will intelligently stop the vehicle in the event of vehicle hijack, theft or where a vehicle is being used in a dangerous or unlawful situation. Once the vehicle has been secured the stop command can be withdrawn and the vehicle can be started and driven immediately.
The initial idea for TracknStop was developed by Co-founder, Stephen Kehoe. Having worked in security and asset management for a number of years, Stephen had used vehicle trackers on numerous occasions. And yet, despite the obvious benefits of these trackers, Stephen felt they were significantly limited. Why couldn’t someone develop a system that could not only track a vehicle’s movement, but remotely disable its engine too?
With this question in mind, TracknStop was born and the US Patent marks a milestone.
The awarding of the US Patent on 15 unique ‘claims’ demonstrates how cutting edge our technology actually is. Stephen Kehoe added “The US Patent verifies that we have some fantastic technology and we look forward to continuing our US ventures.”
