  • Patent number: 11113966
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and system that receives sensor information from each of a plurality of sensors. Each sensor in the plurality is associated with a vehicle. The sensor information includes location coordinates of each vehicle in the plurality. The sensor information associated with each vehicle in the plurality then is translated to parking statistics information. In one embodiment, the translation is based on an aggregate of sensor information corresponding to the plurality of vehicles. The system then communicates parking statistics information to the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11099145
    Abstract: Systems and methods electronic barcoding of particles. The methods comprise: performing operations by a spin coater to spin coat a single layer of particles onto a substrate; performing operations by a heat applicator to apply heat to the substrate so as to evaporate a liquid; and performing operations by at least one material depositor to transform the particles into Electronically Barcoded Particles (“EBPs”). EBPs are fabricated by: coating a portion of each said particle of the particles with a first conductive layer; depositing an insulative layer on the first conductive layer; and/or depositing a second conductive layer on the insulative layer so as to form a parallel plate capacitor on the particle. The parallel plate capacitor is tuned so that the particle has a capacitance that is different than the capacitances of other ones of the electronically barcoded particles.
