The automotive industry encompasses a wide variety of technologies, from purely mechanical components through to complex electronic management systems. Our electronics and engineering group is well placed to deal with the whole range of technology across the industry.
Aside from basic vehicle-related technologies, we have experience in ancillary systems including navigation and vehicle tracking, as well as enhanced visibility systems.
The industry is also at the forefront of green technology, with increasing pressure from government and environmental groups to reduce vehicle emissions and increase fuel efficiency. There are significant levels of ongoing research and investment into alternative fuels and hybrid vehicle technology.
We have extensive knowledge and experience in battery and fuel cell technologies, ranging from fuel cell end plate design through to novel catalyst compositions. Patents in this area are dealt with by both the electronics and engineering group and the chemical group, depending on the specific technology.
Our attorneys also handle the registration of designs relating to automotive products or parts.
