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, with the processing involving a comparator and machine learning to improve the accuracy of the usage information provided.

The smart container system described in the patent offers a novel way to track and monitor consumables by utilizing RFID technology and sensors embedded in the label. The data collected from the sensors is processed to provide detailed usage information to the user, enhancing convenience and efficiency. The system is adaptable to different types of containers and consumables, with the ability to modify numeric ranges through machine learning for improved accuracy. Overall, the smart container system combines hardware and software components to offer a comprehensive solution for monitoring and managing consumables in various settings, with potential applications in industries where tracking usage and inventory is crucial.
