  • Patent number: 10755520
    Abstract: In accordance with some embodiments, an RFID-enabled table game system provides for determining whether there is a variance between an expected balance of inventory and an actual balance of inventory in a game element container. If a variance is detected, the RFID-enabled game system may identify at least one characteristic associated with an RFID-enabled game element that is determined to be a source of the variance (e.g., a player position at which the RFID-enabled game element had last been detected, a denomination or value of the game element, and/or an identifier associated with the game element). In some embodiments, an alert may be output to game provider personnel (e.g., a dealer of a card game) at the end of a game play when such a variance is detected, thus allowing the variance to be corrected in an efficient and timely manner.

  • Publication number: 20200143626
    Abstract: In accordance with some embodiments there is provided an electronic gaming table system (e.g., a smart table operable to facilitate a card game, such as baccarat, blackjack or poker) which includes (i) at least one detecting mechanism for detecting a plurality of game elements (e.g., wagering chips) placed on, or removed from, a particular physical position of a physical table of the gaming table system to represent at least one wager for a particular game event; and (ii) a game controller operable to identify, based at least on data received from the at least one detecting mechanism, whether the plurality of game elements represent a single wager or multiple distinct wagers placed on the particular physical position and for the particular game event. In some embodiments, the detecting mechanism is an RFID antenna.

  • Patent number: 10302740
    Abstract: System and method for adaptive target estimation in a radar system include: receiving a range-Doppler map (RDM) of a plurality of radar return signals; detecting N strongest signals in the RDM, wherein N is an integer greater than zero; removing the detected N strongest signals from the RDM by orthogonalizing the data in the RDM; storing information about the removed N strongest signals in a memory; repeating the steps of detecting, removing, and storing until a stopping criteria is met; when the stopping criteria is met, repopulating the RDM with the stored information about N strongest signals in the RDM to obtain a final RDM; and detecting targets using the final RDM.
