Valqari has been awarded its latest patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). With a priority date of January 2, 2014, the patent (patent no. 11,117,680) covers a broad range of claims in the field of drone delivery and Valqari’s delivery infrastructure, from general UAV delivery to protecting users’ packages from theft, weather, and other nuisances.
Valqari has created the market-leading drone delivery solution that has solved the last inch logistic problems with its patented Drone Delivery Station that provides a secure and convenient delivery receptacle for both drone and traditional package delivery and pick-up. Equipped with best-in-class hardware and software, the Drone Delivery Station is completely platform-agnostic, operating seamlessly with any drone manufacturer and further solidifying Valqari as the ideal solution for drone delivery. Effortlessly handling e-commerce and food delivery, the Drone Delivery Station also provides value for hospitality, healthcare, and maritime applications. Previously difficult places to reach, such as remote villages and rural areas, can now have medicine and other important parcels easily and securely delivered.
The US patent raises Valqari’s patent portfolio to 28 issued patents across the globe, all of which apply to drone delivery receptacles and delivery infrastructure. Valqari offers the sole drone delivery solution to be issued utility patents in 16 countries and territories including the US, the UK, Germany, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Australia, South Africa, and several other countries in the European Union.
“As commercial drone deliveries become inevitable, it will be a necessity that businesses around the world are equipped with Valqari’s complete solution,” Ryan Walsh, Founder and CEO of Valqari was quoted as saying.
