Loveland Innovations, a developer of drone solutions for the property and casualty insurance industry, has announced it has been awarded a second patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The patent advances the manner in which aerial imagery, used for the purposes of identifying and estimating roof damage, is captured. The approach positions the drone in a way that limits potential image distortion and lays the groundwork for further image capture techniques that will accelerate the use of aerial imagery in established insurance workflows.
“Our team has more than 200 combined years of experience in developing technology solutions for insurance,” says Jim Loveland, CEO and Founder of Loveland Innovations. “By drawing on this wealth of experience, and through listening to key industry players, we’re vastly improving the industry’s approach to capturing aerial images for the claims process in ways above and beyond advances in hardware. The speed in which we continue to receive patents from the USPTO is a tremendous testament to our unique skill set and incredibly innovative approach as a company. This latest patent is one of many of our planned steps forward for insurance-focused drone solutions.”
The issuance of patent number 9,734,397 comes months after Loveland Innovations’ first patent, which covers advanced image capturing techniques as well as in-app technologies that makes performing drone inspections simple for insurance professionals.
