ARuVR granted patent for its XR (extended reality) tech
ARuVR, a multi-award winning end-to-end, enterprise-grade Extended Reality (XR) training platform, has announced that it has been granted a patent by the UK Intellectual Property Office (UK IPO). The title of the invention is 'Virtual and Augmented Reality units, systems and methods'.
The technology covered by the patent (which includes a total of 15 claims) solves many issues including: multi-user simultaneous VR/AR training solutions being so far only satisfactory for individual use due the inherent latency issues associated with such real-time, high data payload applications.
The patent is numbered GB2586627 and will remain in force for 20 years. Following three years of research and development, the ARuVR training platform enables enterprises to train in real-time multiple employees, in any location globally, through a multiway interactive AR/VR experience.
Due to the patented technology and software, all participants, including the trainer/presenter are able to collaborate in an immersive or augmented reality experience and to see what all participants are doing, in real-time with zero latency. The invention is already present in the ARuVR platform and to date, ARuVR technology has been deployed by many leading global enterprises, including: Coca-Cola, BT, Rio Tinto, NEOM, Amazon, American Express, BP, Philip Morris, Barilla, PwC and many others.
Said Frank Furnari, CEO & Founder, ARuVR: “Until now the potential of VR/AR in a training capacity has been limited by its 1-2-1 nature and problems with latency. ARuVR VR/AR training solutions significantly solve this, allowing enterprises to effectively communicate, collaborate and train their workforce at the same time, wherever they are, interactively and in real-time. Our technology innovation has been recognised with this patent and we, as a team, are immensely proud of what we have achieved.”
To quote Marco Morbidini, Partner at Kilburn & Strode LLP: “The granting of this British patent is testament to the problems that have been solved and the ingenuity of the team, particularly because the UK IPO applies strict legal tests to recognise patentability.
"We will be advising ARuVR as it seeks patent protection for its technology innovation also in many other jurisdictions in the World.” ARuVR is pleased to announce that it will be at the Learning Technologies Autumn Forum at ExCel London on Thursday 13th October 2022 on Stand #39.
