U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Oregon (Nov. 22)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 22 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Oregon.

*** Navadi Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 22 -- Navadi, Lake Oswego, Ore., has been assigned a patent (8,315,905) developed by Perry M. Adair, Eugene, Ore., for "location based advertising systems." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Two directional data exchange between a mobile navigation system and a listing system enables pricing models and analytics that are responsive to trips initiated in response to location based listings on the navigation system. The data exchange may include information to present the listing to the user, track whether the user elected to begin navigating to the destination based on that listing, intermediate status as the user progresses towards the destination, and an indication that the user arrived at the location. The data may be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the listing in bringing customers to a physical location associated with the listing. The data may be applied in a performance-based pricing model by which pricing for the listing is based in full or in part on the number of trips initiated and/or completed as a result of the listing." The patent application was filed on March 20, 2007 (11/688,761).

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Apparatuses, systems, and methods that reduce the amount of time for recovering multiple beam-formed links in a wireless network are disclosed. An embodiment may, e.g., be a mobile computing device with wireless beamforming communications capabilities. Upon establishing links with multiple stations, the mobile computing device may sense that the link quality or strength is degrading for several of the links. The laptop may transmit a single forward-transmission sector sweep (FWD-TXSS) to initiate recovery of the links. The other stations previously linked to the laptop may detect the degradation the links and start monitoring for the single FWD-TXSS. The receiving devices may each perform reverse-transmission sector sweeps (REV-TXSS), in sequence, to reestablish beam-formed links with the laptop without requiring multiple forward-transmission sector sweeps." The patent application was filed on Dec. 23, 2009 (12/645,923). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,315,154&OS=8,315,154&RS=8,315,154 Written by Neha Bharti; edited by Jaya Anand.
