SSJR Successfully Appeals Claim Rejections of Patent Application Directed to a System and Method of Road Friction Estimation
27 February 2014
SSJR attorneys secured a favorable decision by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, reversing all rejections of an application directed to a system and method of estimating road friction in a vehicle using a tire force-tire slip model. The Board agreed with SSJR’s arguments and found that the claimed invention is novel and non-obvious over cited prior art. Issuance of a patent for all pending claims is expected in due course.
