CORONA, CA -- AVT Inc. announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has approved its application for a patent that relates to wireless networks for vending machines.

Patent No. 8,191,779 B2 was issued for AVT-developed technology regarding a unique wireless system designed to manage a network of remote vending machines. AVT's patented technology employs graphical touchscreen user interfaces, which can include means for paying for items vended and a two-way wireless network to connect an enterprise control center with remote vending machines.

The patent, which covers 19 claims, was filed by AVT founder Shannon Illingworth and chief executive James Winsor.

"AVT spent almost three years dedicated to research and development designing componentry and entire new systems that are literally redefining the retailing world," said Illingworth.

The Corona, CA-based developer of automated retail systems posted substantial gains in net income and revenue in the first quarter of 2012. | SEE STORY
