    Hi everybody, I have developed a unique concept seatbelt system and automobile cellphone holder system, which when installed in a vehicle will never let drivers to drive the vehicle and talk on cellphones without handsfree and the innovative seatbelt concept with which a driver will be unable to drive a vehicle without wearing it and for which no intervention is required to insist the drivers for wearing seatbelt or handsfree.

    I want to get it used commercially, can anybod help me with this?

    thanks in advance

    Hi DPD! Welcome to PF! :smile:
    Apply for a patent first,

    and don't tell anyone how it works until you've done so

    Thanks for your suggestion

    How can I do that in India?

    It seems I need to contact some research professor who will accept to be my guide,then only I can apply for a patent...Is it true? I dont know the procedure

    Can I do it myself individually?
    Please help, thank you

    Indian patent law is probably the same as UK patent law, and anybody can apply for a patent themselves (though it might be easier to use a patent agent, if you can afford it).

    However, it might be better to apply for a patent in the US, Japan, or any other country that produces a lot of vehicles … a patent agent could advise you on that (I assume … though I could be wrong … that Indian patents only cover India).

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patent" [Broken] for the general law of patents.

    See http://www.patentoffice.nic.in/" [Broken] for all the Indian rules and for a list of patent agents. :smile:

    and see the internet generally for stories of what can go wrong if you don't do it properly :redface:
