SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AgJunction Inc. (TSX: AJX), ("AgJunction" or the “Company”), announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted the Company a reissued patent titled “Raster-based Contour Swathing for Guidance and Variable-Rate Chemical Application.”
This invention concerns a ground facing optical sensor that detects the motion of an off-road vehicle over the ground. The signals generated from this sensor are used to compensate for errors in the inertial data fed into the control system. Among other uses, an optical sensor signal can be utilized to compensate during a GNSS outage, which could not be done previously.
“We are very pleased to be awarded the reissue of this important patent,” said Bob Barjesteh, executive vice president and general counsel for AgJunction. “We have filed a select few reissue applications as part of our ongoing IP optimization strategy. This reissued patent has emerged with strengthened claim language which more closely aligns with our business and industry.”
AgJunction currently owns or exclusively licenses over 200 precision agriculture patents and pending patents worldwide.
