What is LiDAR Technology?

LiDAR is a technology that employs light as pulsed laser to measure distances. Through repeated pings, a LiDAR device can learn how nearby objects move, calculate their speed, and detect whether they are facing toward or away from the LiDAR device, and is a fundamental technology feature for self-driving cars

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my company need freedom to innovate?

Without freedom to innovate, your commercial product line may be infringing on another’s IP rights, meaning making or selling your product puts your company at risk

Do I have to contribute my own patents to join as a Member?

No, the licenses to patents are provided by the Founders only. There is a thorough screening before this to ensure all patents contributed are high quality and worth inclusion in the Smart Pool

I heard other patent pools do not allow patent owners to take patents they contributed/pledged with them when they leave the patent pool. Is that true here?

No, IPwe is unique in this respect. IPwe’s Smart Pools allow Founders to take their patents with them if they decide to leave the Smart Pool. Therefore, there is no risk to the Founders.

How does 'blockchain’ technology power Smart Pools?

Each patent on our platform is tokenized as an IPwe Digital Asset to streamline the licensing process, cutting costs and time for all parties involved

Are there additional costs?

IPwe's Smart Pools have been designed to be simple and hassle-free. We provide a blanket license without hidden fees to all patents available in the pool, taking away the need to seek additional licenses and the related costs

Is there an exit fee?

No, we want our early adopters to understand the value of our platform without the pressure of committing to fees further down the line

Does the LiDAR Smart Pool require exclusivity from other patent pools?

No, IPwe's mission is to promote and encourage innovation with cutting-edge technologies so business leaders can better manage intangible assets. We provide the best means to promote innovation but will not set out further obstacles with an exclusivity requirement
