A patent may contain images, also referred to as patent drawings that illustrates several embodiments of the invention. Patent drawings enable clear understanding of the invention. Patent drawings typically are annotated with numbers, letters, and reference characters for various parts of the drawing. These annotations are subsequently referred in detailed descriptions and claims. Therefore, analyzing patent drawings can be a challenging task as it requires going back and forth between drawings and detailed description.
- SPA’s Drawing Analyzer allows users to upload patent numbers to the tool
- The tool automatically identifies numbers, letters or reference characters in the images of the patent documents, and extracts labels and description
- The labels and descriptions are in editable format.
- The labelled drawings could be exported to a document in PowerPoint or Word format.
- The tool also works well with foreign language patents such as JP/CN/KR.
The labelled drawings enable easy understanding of the image contents. SPA analysts have witnessed about 80% accuracy results from the tool and have achieved significant time savings of about 60% during project execution.
SPA’s Drawing Analyzer will enable the larger research community in real time to correlate to the patent drawings during screening and analysis. SPA’s Drawing Analyzer is now available to external clients to help automate and bring in efficiency to their internal work processes.
