For the second year in a row, Toyota was issued more patents than any other automaker.

The Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) recently published data on patents issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in 2015, and Toyota is the only automaker listed among the top 20 on the IPO list. The Japanese automaker received 1,636 patents and over the past eight years, it has been awarded more patents than any other automotive company. Other companies in the top 20 include Apple, Google, IBM and Microsoft.

One of the more interesting patents filed by Toyota last year is one that hints at a flying car, featuring a stackable wing. While it may not be realistic for the time being, it shows that Toyota is forward-thinking whether it’s working on artificial skin for pedestrian safety mannequins or helping self-driving cars detect and safely react to emergency situations.

'As companies in the automotive industry transform themselves into broader mobility providers, no auto company better demonstrates innovation and technology for the future than Toyota,' said Jeff Makarewicz, senior vice president, Toyota Technical Center (TTC), Toyota’s North American research and development headquarters. 'We’re focused on delivering great experiences for our customers, a cornerstone of Toyota’s product commitment, and this recognition is proof we’re living up to that promise.'
