No description of your idea or your solution? It is too early to tell if your idea is truly novel. To find what you’re looking for in the mass of available data, research experience, patent expertise, and knowledge of the specific field is essential. A search specialist might be able to find relevant documents for you in specialized databases. It is possible that competitors have purposely withheld a solution from patenting. In such a case -- when others have neither publicized nor applied for a patent – your invention is considered novel and nothing would hinder patenting it.
Keep going with your research and begin developing a proto-type soon!
