For the fourth consecutive quarter, General Motors ranked first among 183 companies in The Patent Board's quarterly automotive and transportation industry scorecard. GM was granted 1123 U.S. patents in 2011 in its global product engineering, global powertrain engineering, global research and development, and OnStar organizations. The Patent Board is the leading independent provider of best practices, research tools, and metrics for patent analysis and intellectual property investment. It tracks and analyzes innovation and patents across 17 industries on a global basis. “We are in the midst of redefining the automotive DNA, and these efforts are driving our people to reinvent every subsystem on the vehicle,” said Alan Taub, GM Vice President of Global Research and Development. “Being the recognized leader in innovation is important, because it tells our customers and shareholders that we are working on the leading edge of technology.” See additional comments from Taub here.
