Application: Apparatus, system, and method for providing a smart container (Patent ID: US20230409851A1)

The patent filed by Jabil Inc. describes a smart container that includes a passive sensing tag (PST) embedded in a label affixed to the container body. The PST contains a backscatter antenna, a radio-frequency identification (RFID), and at least one sensor. When activated by a radio frequency transceiver, the backscatter antenna provides the RFID and sensor data, which is then processed to provide usage information of the consumable to the user through a dashboard accessible on smartphones and desktops. The container body is made of non-metal materials like plastic, glass, or paper, and the consumable can be either a liquid or a solid, such as powder, gel, or gummy. The sensor data can include information about the type, level, temperature, humidity, and density of the consumable.

The smart container system also involves data processing using a comparator to analyze sensor data within predefined numeric ranges to determine container and consumable characteristics. These numeric ranges can be adjusted through machine learning based on feedback about the accuracy of the usage information provided. The machine learning process involves training artificial intelligence (AI) to continuously improve the accuracy and relevance of the data processing. Overall, the smart container system aims to provide users with detailed usage information about the consumable stored in the container through an efficient and user-friendly dashboard interface accessible on various devices.
