  • Patent number: 11902784
    Abstract: Systems and methods for access control systems includes first and second access facilities, and first and second readers. The first reader is configured to control access through the first access facility, receive a credential using a first communication protocol from a device that stores the credential, and establish a secret with the device using the credential. The second reader is configured to control access through the second access facility. The first reader is configured to provide the secret to the second reader, and the second device is further configured to perform ranging using the secret and a second communication protocol different than the first communication protocol to identify intent information. Access through one of the first facility or the second facility is coordinated using the intent information.

  • Publication number: 20230388799
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for a physical access control systems with localization-based intent detection are described herein. In an example, an access control system may regulate access to an asset. The access control system is adapted to establish a first connection with a key-device. The access control system may be further adapted to receive a credential for a user over the first connection. The access control system may be further adapted to establish a second connection with the key-device. The access control system may be further adapted to determine an intent of the user to access the asset. The access control system may use location data derived from the second connection to determine the intent of the user. The access control system may be further adapted to provide the credential to an access controller, based on identifying an intent of the user to access the asset.

  • Patent number: 11825292
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for a physical access control systems with localization-based intent detection are described herein. In an example, an access control system may regulate access to an asset. The access control system is adapted to receive a credential from a key device associated with a user using a first wireless connection. The access control system may be further adapted to verify the credential with a preliminary authentication for the asset. The access control system may be further adapted to establish a second wireless connection with the key device in response to verifying the credential with the preliminary authentication. The access control system may be adapted to determine an intent of the user to access the asset. The access control system may identify the credential includes a pattern in the preliminary authentication. The access control system may be further adapted to provide a command to grant access to the asset.

  • Patent number: 11574776
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method and a monitoring system, for monitoring a vacuum on-load tap changer. The tap changer includes a housing with insulating fluid, a diverter switch inside of the housing and including at least one movable contact and at least two vacuum interrupters, and at least one pressure sensor which measures the pressure in the housing. The method, which is performed by a processing circuitry in the system, includes determining a pressure signature, including two succeeding peaks within a time interval, continuously measuring the pressure, detecting when the measured pressure shows the pressure signature, determining, based on the measured pressure within the pressure signature, the time between the first rise in pressure and the second drop, and setting the determined time to represent the switch time of the diverter switch.
