Vehicle leasing company Vanarama has decided to troll through a patent that never came into production and probably never will. Many of these are the kind of things you would expect to see with someone later in the evening with a newly legal substance. They certainly found some Dodge and even put two to three patents from different sources on the same fictional car depicting it. What’s amazing is that anyone can spend time and enough to submit a patent on them. More surprisingly, these are not all products of an insignificant person – most of them are owned by big manufacturers. Toyota and Ford, two car companies with a maximum 2018-2019 U.S. patent, have released more limited patents, but we’re not sure if anyone with a patent will rush to create a retractable telescopic tailor mobile meeting room, respectively.
Tesla gained much more love from the community when it opened a patent for electronic vehicles in an attempt to expand the overall market at the risk of their leadership. Most of the attention was focused on things like superchargers but you probably haven’t heard of lasers that can clean your windscreen. It’s not just specialized car companies. Google has patented a sticky car bonnet so that in a collision pedestrians stay on top of the car instead of throwing it under the car or in the air. If people stop worrying about their driverless vehicles, we don’t think it will work if they count it.
A few examples actually seem to be quite effective as the front light of autonomous vehicle signals to pedestrians when it is safe. Many parents wanted to split backsets to keep warlike children safe from each other and some have probably made their own, so there is probably a market for it that is easy to install and remove.
