Share this article

Raven Industries, Inc. has purchased all of the intellectual property and patents of Jaybridge Robotics, an early developer of automated agriculture technology.


Jaybridge’s intellectual property portfolio includes patents for technology directly related to path-planning, obstacle detection and avoidance, and multi-machine control systems. Raven will leverage this intellectual property portfolio with the company’s continued development of driverless ag technology – including integration of the technology into the company’s AutoCart platform.

“By acquiring Jaybridge’s intellectual property we are able to advance our autonomy strategy by combining necessary, technology-leading patents with our current suite of proprietary products in this space,” said Jared Kocer, Raven’s director of technology solutions. “Having this technology will allow us to accelerate the development of vehicle automation for agriculture equipment applications.”
The acquisition was completed in the first quarter of the company’s current fiscal year.
