Daimler’s patents blocked 939+ assignees since 2000

We monitored the patent publications of Daimler for the past 20 years at the USPTO. Its patent portfolio shows that they have their footprints in 57 different technology areas ranging from Databases and File Management to Business Methods.

Below are the top technology areas of their interest: 

Technology AreasNumber of Applications
Thermal and Combustion Technology, Motive and Fluid power systems607
Computerized Vehicle Control and navigation, Radio Wave, Optical and Acoustic wave communication, Robotic Controls and Nuclear systems261
Surface Transportation251
Fuel Cells, Battery, Flammable Gas, Solar Cells. Liquid Crystal Compositions148
Computer Graphic Processing, 3D Animation, Display Color Attributes,Object Processing, Hardware & Memory104
Material and Article Handling82

Since they have patents covering a wide array of technologies so we thought why not check which type of companies are getting blocked by these patents. Refer to the table below for more information:

Number of Blocked Assignee939
Number of publications monitored3278
Publications involved in rejections1250
Number of 102/103 rejections4264

Which assignees faced most rejections?

Interestingly, ~4000 rejections (102/103 type) were given based on Daimler patents. It would be even more interesting to see which companies are getting rejections based on Daimler’s patents. The below chart shows the top competitors which get maximum rejections because of Daimler’s patents.
