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 such as plastic, glass, or paper, and the consumable can be either a liquid or a solid, including powders, gels, or gummies. The sensor data can indicate various characteristics of the consumable, such as type, level, temperature, humidity, and density.

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. Additionally, machine learning techniques, including training artificial intelligence (AI), are utilized to modify these numeric ranges based on feedback regarding the accuracy of the usage information provided. Overall, the smart container aims to provide users with detailed information about the consumable stored within it, enhancing convenience and efficiency in monitoring and managing consumable usage.
