Who We Are
Art of the Possible – Developing Connected Vehicle Platforms
Cellport Systems incorporated in 1993 in Boulder, Colorado as a company devoted to the “art of the possible” – specializing in interfacing wireless and vehicle networks.
Starting as small research lab, the team of five founders was committed to creating universal wireless connectivity solutions with the goal of licensing the technologies around the globe. Today over twenty global technology companies have licensed Cellport patents, software and know-how.
The innovative, visionary team developed three patented connected vehicle platforms:
After three years of focused R&D in 1996, Cellport introduced its Mobile Network Technologies (MNT) platform by demonstrating the world’s first Internet-connected vehicle, called Mobile Web.
This breakthrough technology connected any vehicle to the Internet. Selling hundreds of prototype systems to passenger car, truck and heavy equipment manufacturers over a decade, Cellport brought about today’s surge of Internet-connected vehicle growth along with a broad range of applications.
After a decade of learning experiences and two successful platform launches, Cellport’s research team started work on CyberCar - a vehicle security, privacy and monetization platform.
This security platform, known as the secure telematics framework (STF), was developed to provide a secure bidirectional transmission of data between the vehicle and the cloud. It was designed to create a platform for commerce, secure telematics, and user authentication.
Supporting a federated security model, STF software incorporates industry standard credential management, encryption, and digital signature technologies. With the STF solution, secure credentials can be created and authenticated, providing a secure channel for cloud applications while also providing security to vehicle resources.
Recently, inventors at Cellport realized that the benefits of a blockchain ledger database are a perfect fit and an extension of STF. This structure allows for:
- The creation of a secure channel for transmission and storage of archived data from a vehicle.
- Secure smart contracts and commerce between parties with unknown reputations using the unchallengeable blockchain.
- The creation of new opportunities for commerce and data expanding the federated authentication to include blockchain validation.
Two patent continuations that are pending will extend the existing STF patent portfolio of three issued patents. These continuations will focus on claims related to blockchain that exist in the original STF patent specification. Cellport also anticipates significant opportunities for further STF and blockchain related patents.
