  • Patent number: 10331907
    Abstract: Architecture for centralized photo storage for user profiles with consent and cardkey system integration. A picture picker can connect to a cardkey/security badge photo system to allow users to choose from badge photos. Consent is also captured by the picker to allow user photos to be used in other applications. Other applications can interact with the photo storage using standard web services and APIs for the user profile and user profile change log services. Centralized storage and insured accessibility enable applications to consume from the photo storage. The photo storage can also function as a virtual directory with distributed storage as utilized for geographical deployments. Extensions of the photo storage can include an add-in for a personal information manager application and a management agent for web-based collaboration and document management to copy photos from/to other directory structures.

  • Patent number: 8373548
    Abstract: A highly portable, vertically-standing RFID tag reader, referred to as a “bollard,” is presented. The bollard includes a vertical element supporting an internal RFID tuner component above the surface on which the bollard rests. Additionally, each bollard includes a base element that provides vertical stability to the vertical element and a plurality of internal components. The internal components include the following: a power system, a processor, a tuner component, and a wireless interface. The power system provides power to the powered components of the bollard. The processor directs and/or executes the functions of the bollard with regard to an event in which the bollard is configured to participate. The tuner component is configured to read RFID tags that come within RFID communication range of the bollard. The wireless interface component is configured to provide wireless communications between the bollard and an operator console.

  • Publication number: 20120223145
    Abstract: A supported RFID tag that positions the antenna of the RFID tag away from an object identified by the tag. In one form, the antenna of the RFID tag is supported by one end of a flat, relatively rigid sheet. A hole is located in the other end. When tightly attached to an object via the hole, a bumper rotates the antenna away from the object. Other forms include a semi-rigid support. The semi-rigid support may be rotated into a loop cylinder or truncated cone; have inner surfaces joined to create a loop; or include an outwardly bent flap. In all cases, the antenna of the RFID tag is positioned away from the object to be identified by the tag when the semi-rigid support is attached to the object.

  • Publication number: 20120139707
    Abstract: A supported RFID tag that positions the antenna of the RFID tag away from an object identified by the tag. In one form, the support includes a flat, relatively rigid sheet and a bumper. The antenna of the RFID tag is supported by one end of the flat sheet and a hole is located in the other end. When tightly attached to an object via the hole, the bumper causes the antenna portion to be positioned away from the object. In another form, a semi-rigid support is rotated into a cylinder or truncated cone. The antenna portion of the RFID tag is positioned such that when the support sheet is attached to an object, at least the antenna portion is positioned away from the object. In another form, the inner surfaces of the opposed ends of the semi-rigid support sheet create a loop. When the overlying ends of the loop are attached to an object the antenna portion is positioned away from the object. In still another form, the semi-rigid tag includes an outwardly bent flap that supports the antenna portion.

  • Patent number: 6522264
    Abstract: An improved airport parking communication system is provided. When a customer arrives at a parking lot, the customer is provided a radio frequency identification tag. The customer's name and vehicle slot number are electronically written onto the radio frequency identification tag as well as entered into a parking system database. This occurs before the customer enters the courtesy bus for the terminal of the airport. When the customer returns to the airport and gathers their luggage, the customer moves to an island that includes readers that read the information stored in the radio frequency identification tag carried by the customer. The information is transmitted to the parking lot, where the information is used to dispatch a courtesy bus to retrieve the customer, or to communicate with a courtesy bus already en route.

    Abstract: An improved airport valet communication system is presented. The system attaches a vehicle tag to a vehicle. A stall tag is also provided and is placed somewhere within the vicinity of a parking stall. To communicate with these two tags, a handheld computer is provided by the system for communicating with the vehicle tag via radio frequency communication to obtain an identification of the vehicle and for communicating with the stall tag via radio frequency communication to obtain an identification of the parking stall so as to correlate the vehicle and the parking stall in which the vehicle is parked.
