Opus IVS, a Dexter-based diagnostics, ADAS calibration, programming, and on-demand remote support provider, has been issued two new patents — No. 11,295,277 (the ‘277 patent) and No. 11,257,307 (the ‘307 patent) — by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The ‘277 patent continues Opus IVS’ protection of its improved approach to diagnostic services through remote and remoting capabilities and lowers the cost for completing complex repairs. It is “foundational” to all remote vehicle services activities and is a continuation of IVS subsidiary BlueLink’s patent maintaining a priority date back to 2010.

“An entire industry of remote diagnostic services has been created since the BlueLink invention was developed and the ‘277 patent continuation reflects a confirmation of this innovation,” says Brian Herron, CEO of Opus IVS. “This award by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office clearly asserts Opus IVS as the first innovator in remote diagnostics, which many others have since followed.”

The ‘307 patent covers the productivity enhancement of determining the ADAS system presence on a vehicle, via reading vehicle data and reference against a database of ADAS information. The diagnostic scanning method is then selected based upon the presence of certain electronic systems.

“Servicing ADAS equipped vehicles is complex,” says Herron, a named inventor on the ‘307 patent. “This new patent streamlines the workflow and reduces errors by simplifying the repair process for the vehicle repair shop. Having certainty as to what systems are on the vehicle is critical to a completed safe vehicle repair, and only Opus offers this capability.”

These new patents, along with many other examples of Opus IVS innovation will be on display at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, Nov. 1-4 in Las Vegas.
