Patent for Mitek vehicle ID number mobile capture

Mobile capture and identity verification software company Mitek said it was issued a patent for “Methods For Mobile Image Capture Of Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) In A Non-Document” by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Mitek now has 30 patents issued.

“This latest patent covers the ability to scan a VIN directly from a vehicle with the camera on a mobile device and has the potential to replace the stand alone VIN scanners that many in the government, logistics and manufacturing industries currently use to track and monitor their fleets,” said Mitek chief technology officer Stephen Ritter.

“As proven in financial services, Mitek’s technology saves organizations time and money with reduced hardware costs and increased efficiency.”
