Stragent, LLC has kept its only active litigation campaign alive, filing new suits against three familiar defendants: BMW (1:20-cv-00510), Daimler (Mercedes-Benz) (1:20-cv-00511), and Zhejiang Geely (Volvo) (1:20-cv-00512), all in the District of Delaware. The four asserted patents, generally related to a distributed system for communicating information in an “automotive electronic control unit”, are the more recent members of an eight-patent family, earlier members of which were asserted against the same three defendants in 2016 cases in the Eastern District of Texas, where the court is currently considering a motion to award attorney fees against Stragent. The defendants are targeted, again, over their provision of automobiles with electronic control units (ECUs) that feature AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) technology.
