  • Patent number: 10990769
    Abstract: Apparatuses, systems, and methods of manufacturing are described that provide improved tag identification. An example system includes a radio-frequency identification (RFID) scanner that receives a stream of RFID tags each associated with a respective article. The system further includes a first sensor attached to the RFID scanner that generates first positional data and a second sensor positioned separate from the first sensor that generates second positional data. The system also includes a computing device communicably coupled with the RFID scanner, the first sensor, and the second sensor. The computing device receives the stream of RFID tags, receives first positional data from the first sensor, receives second positional data from the second sensor, and determines an intended RFID tag from amongst the stream of RFID tags based upon the first positional data and the second positional data.

  • Publication number: 20200022433
    Abstract: Various embodiments described herein illustrate a glove that includes an anterior portion and a posterior portion. The anterior portion is knitted seamlessly with the posterior portion to define a metacarpal region and a plurality of finger regions extending out from the metacarpal region. A first conductive pad is knitted on the anterior portion of the glove. The first conductive pad is knitted on a distal end portion of a first finger region. A second conductive pad knitted on the posterior portion of the glove. Further, the second conductive pad is knitted on a second finger region. An electronic device is removably attached to the posterior portion and is in electrical communication with the first conductive pad and the second conductive pad. The electronic device is triggered in an instance in which the first conductive pad contacts the second conductive pad.
