CTO of Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) Shares Results of Recent Real-Time Tracking Test of the Guardian Patch Location Technology in San Diego

CTO of Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) Shares Results of Recent Real-Time Tracking Test of the Guardian Patch Location Technology in San Diego

Company’s Unique Tracking Technology Positions for Global Pet Wearable Market



San Diego, California, Point Roberts WA, - September 28, 2016 - Investorideas.com, a global news source covering tech stocks interviews Dr. Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB:GOPH) following the recent successful live demonstration and testing of the Guardian Patch held in San Diego on September 14th, 2016. 

The Guardian Patch is a stick-on patch location technology that can track a phone, a pet collar, a child’s backpack and anything you want to personally track.

Dr. Rittman shares the recent testing results and also discusses the company’s plan to enter the global pet wearable market with the pending release of their Guardian Sphere tracking device.

Interview

Q: Investorideas.com
Danny, congratulations on the recent successful first live test and demonstration of the Guardian Patch. Can you tell us what object(s) you tracked and for how long?  

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.
We tracked a car that I drove, travelling along typical roads and highways. The LIVE DEMO took about 1 hour. During the DEMO I stopped at a few locations to demonstrate the accuracy of the tracking system, in real time, if needed.


Q: Investorideas.com
This first live demo was in a 50 mile radius in San Diego. Can you tell us the challenges you faced in this demo and also what surprised you, if anything, as you went through the testing?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.
The main challenge was to keep the real-time aspect. Although the final Patch will transmit its location every certain amount of time (in some applications even just twice a day, each application will determine the time interval), this DEMO focused on real time response. We achieved amazing results by keeping continuous, smooth tracking of my location at all times with intervals of about 10 seconds. One of my associates said: “Danny, you bring satellite from the sky to the ground, so exciting.”


Q: Investorideas.com
Now that you have done a successful tracking in a 50 mile radius area, what will the next testing parameters include and can you estimate when and where that will take place?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.
The next DEMO will be to cover a greater distance. Then once we complete this, we will probably demonstrate the Guardian Sphere which is a local tracking device, targeted for applications like tracking pets, kids…or any other object that is not supposed to move.


Q: Investorideas.com
The Guardian Patch works with or without GPS, so in your next series of testing will you show how it tracks in areas without GPS capabilities? And on that note, can you briefly explain how that works? How you can locate a person or object where there is no access to GPS?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.
The current system already has a partial GeoLocation mechanism. In future DEMOs, we will demonstrate live tracking without GPS by simply blocking the “eye-in-the-sky” access. This will be done by entering a closed location like a tunnel or similar.


Q: Investorideas.com
The Company is looking at all potential applications for the unique tracking technology and just announced the development of the Guardian Sphere tracking device, primarily created for the pet market.  Can you tell us what differentiates it from the Patch and how it works?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.
The Guardian Sphere is a local tracking device that can be used for pets, objects and even children, team members at tradeshows, hospital patients, or any other object that is not supposed to move (like hospital equipment, and similar). It is targeted to track in a radius of 5-10 miles. With existence of similar Guardian Sphere devices in the area, this range can be easily extended. This tracking device includes similar technology aspects as the Patch and is targeted for local operation.


Q: Investorideas.com
The global pet wearable market is expected to reach USD 2.36 billion by 2022 according to some analysts. Do you see this as one of your biggest market opportunities? 

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.
Given this estimated market share, I think that there is a great opportunity for the Guardian Sphere since it is the leader in its domain. There is no similar device currently in the market that offers such large range with the possibilities of extension.


Q: Investorideas.com
So for consumers and investors following the Company, what is the next phase of development to expect prior to the official consumer launch of your products?

 

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.
Due to demand, we are now focused on rapid manufacturing of the Guardian Sphere, targeting Q1 or Q2 of 2017 to be available for sale. As the Sphere itself “keeps evolving” as an independent product, I cannot guarantee the timing, as adding features extends the development. For example, just lately we are thinking of an additional light button for the Sphere. But in essence, the Sphere and introduction to the market ASAP is our first priority.  In parallel, we continue to develop the Guardian Patch, targeted for later in 2017.

Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) Introduces Its Guardian Sphere

Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) Introduces Its Guardian Sphere



SAN DIEGO, CA - September 21, 2016 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB:GOPH) ("Gopher" and the "Company"), a development-stage company which specializes in the development of real-time, heuristic-based mobile technologies, and its partner Guardian Patch LLC, announced today that they are currently ramping-up efforts for the release of their Guardian Sphere tracking device, which is primarily designed for pets, but may also be used for tracking children, adults, including the disabled, inventory, artwork, or virtually any object located within an area covered by the device.

The Guardian Sphere (the "Sphere") system is a derivative technology of the Company's Guardian Patch technology. The Sphere is designed to provide its users with local tracking capability using a re-chargeable/replaceable battery source. The Sphere is an innovative tracking device that can easily be attached to a pet's collar and then transmit real-time location information to the smartphone(s) or website account of the registered owner of the device. The Sphere has a replaceable battery and operates on the exclusive Guardian private network which provides owners with the unique ability to obtain real-time tracking information without the need for GPS, Wi-Fi or cellular service.

The Sphere includes state of the art radio technology, a GPS system and micro controller systems. It sends signals in specific intervals to report on its location. The system analyzes the information using its proprietary, advanced mathematical modeling software that precisely calculates the Sphere's location. The mobile application then presents the exact location of the Sphere on the map. An additional unique system feature is its own Emergency Alert system. The user has the ability to transmit an emergency alert on his or her Sphere's location, directly from the mobile app. All registered users located in that Sphere's proximity will be notified about the Emergency and may notify the user about the Sphere's recovery (which we fondly refer to as a "private emergency alert"). The Sphere utilizes is a bi-directional system which enables data transmission/receiving acknowledgment. It also includes error correction protocol to ensure data accuracy. The Sphere has its own battery source and may be plugged to external power using standard Android type charger socket. The Sphere comes with its own ID. This ID is registered on the mobile app to track the Sphere's location. Multiple Spheres can be registered on the same app for multiple tracking. It is an ideal tracking device for personal and commercial purposes for those seeking high-performance local tracking at an affordable price.

The Sphere represents the Company's entry into the burgeoning global pet wearable market, which is expected to reach USD 2.36 billion by 2022 according to a press release[1] issued by Grand View Research, Inc. in February 2016. According to Grand View's press release, "Growing pet ownership coupled with increasing per capita expenditure on pets is expected to drive product demand over the forecast period." In addition, as stated in a press release[2] issued by the Insurance Information Institute, according to the 2015-2016 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), Sixty-five percent of U.S. households, or about 79.7 million families, own a pet, which is up from 56 percent of U.S. households in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted. The Company believes that the above information suggests a significant potential market for the Sphere and one that the Company believes could potentially benefit from the Sphere.

"The current demand for GPS-based devices that are capable of providing real-time positioning of our loved ones and valuables is fueling global advancements in technologies which are enabling people to remain connected to the things that they value most. In millions of households across the world, pets are beloved members of the family. Our goal in developing the Sphere is to provide pet owners with peace of mind through the use an invaluable recovery tool which will enable them to track their pets in real-time should they ever become separated," stated Company CEO Michael Murray.

In addition to operating as a tracking device for household pets, the Company also recognizes an opportunity for the Sphere to be utilized for tracking valuable livestock on farms as well as animals registered as endangered species.

At the time of this press release, the Company has not specified a release date for the Sphere. The Company is committed to providing more definitive release date information in the coming weeks and is targeting a release date of approximately Q1 2017, of which there is no guarantee.
