Automotive Industry Taxonomy

Supporting mobility on the road to Electrification, Autonomy and Connectivity

We developed the first Automotive Taxonomy in 2018 in collaboration with a number of OEMs and their suppliers. Today, we are the leading provider of custom taxonomies for those needing to navigate patented technologies across the entire automative ecosystem.

With Cipher, in a few hours I can produce a high quality, insightful report where previously I would pay $20,000 and wait 2 months – for a report that didn’t answer my questions.

Chris Kowalsky, Patent Strategy, BorgWarner

Building a Taxonomy for the Automotive Industry

A Taxonomy for patented technologies for Automotive could include the following:

  • Autonomous systems
  • Cabin Systems
  • Chassis and body
  • Complete vehicle systems
  • Drivetrain
  • Electrical Power systems
  • Internal combustion
  • Mobility and connectivity
  • Safety
  • Vehicle dynamics

To find out more about what classifiers could be included, download our example below.  Alternatively, why not look into obtaining your own Custom Taxonomy?
