PHOENIX, Ariz. – Alpine 4 Technologies, Ltd. has been approved on one of two patents filed around its Brake Active rear-end avoidance collision product. The second patent is still pending.
Ian Kantrowitz VP of Investor Relations and a contributor to the Brake Active Patent, said this about the action: “We are thrilled to receive approval on our Brake Active Patent. The Intellectual property (IP) is of significant value to Alpine 4’s holdings.
“From the beginning, the company has placed more value in these patents, than the potential from retail sales. This approval has been three years in the making and gives the company a universal competitive advantage in the third brake light market.
“The patent approval pertains to the use of a microprocessor to control the pulsing of the center high mount stop lamp (CHMSL) on a vehicle. As the OEM manufacturers move away from incandescent bulbs and towards LED lights, the use of a microprocessor-driven product becomes required.
“This will leave the competition with only two options; 1.) They can either pay a royalty or 2.) infringe upon the patent. The company will always defend and enforce the strength of its patents and intellectual property.”
Brake Active is manufactured at Quality Circuit Assembly (QCA) in San Jose, Calif. QCA is a subsidiary of Alpine 4 Technologies Ltd.
