I’ve Wished for Today’s Patent of the Day Device Before!

Posted by innovativeip on August 4, 2010

Although when I bought my car, I did not think I wanted the navigation system, I now can’t imagine driving without.  Mine has a female voice, and I’ve named her “Martha”.  She’s just awesome.  But, on more than one occasion, I admit that I have wished that Martha had real time traffic knowledge.  That would make her perfect.

Enter the Patent of the Day.  U.S. Patent no. 5,933,100, issued August 3, 1999 for an “Automobile Navigation System with Dynamic Traffic Data.” 

Today's Patent of the Day

The patent is assigned to Mitsubishi (my Martha is of Toyota descent).  The device apparently receives updates from a central system that receives updates from vehicles traveling in the referenced areas.  No offense, Martha, but I might just be interested in trying out a new car companion.  If you’d like to find out more, please visit, “of interest”, where you can find all of the “Patents of the Day”.   Enjoy!
