  • Publication number: 20210208082
    Abstract: A reagent test paddle includes a contamination detection medium, a reference color bar, at least one chemical test medium, and a unique identifier. The contamination detection medium includes a reagent that changes color in the presence or when exposed to a hostile or inhospitable environment. Each chemical test medium includes a regent that is responsive to a respective analyte in a biological sample. The reference color bar includes reference color samples of different colors. The unique identifier, like a serial number, identifies the particular paddle and its chemical test medium so it can be uniquely and anonymously associated with a user.

  • Publication number: 20200312071
    Abstract: In accordance with one embodiment, an access control system is disclosed. The access control system comprises an access control panel including a touchable surface, a multi-dimensional touch sensor under the touchable surface, and a processor coupled to the multi-dimensional touch sensor. The multi-dimensional touch sensor captures a multi-dimensional motion signal including a micro-motion signal component representing neuro-mechanical micro-motions of a user touching the multi-dimensional touch sensor. The processor performs signal processing of the multi-dimensional motion signal to obtain the micro-motion signal component; and extracts unique values of predetermined features from the micro-motion signal component to form a neuro-fingerprint (NFP) that uniquely identifies the user. The NFP can be used as a gatekeeper to control entry into homes, offices, buildings, or other real properly typically protected by access control.

  • Patent number: 10061911
    Abstract: In accordance with one embodiment, a method for locally verifying the identification of a user with an electronic device is disclosed. The method includes regenerating a neuro-mechanical fingerprint (NFP) in response to a micro-motion signal sensed at a body part. In response to a plurality of authorized user calibration parameters, a match percentage of the neuro-mechanical fingerprint is determined. The match percentage is determined without the use of a calibration NFP that was previously used to generate the user calibration parameters. Access to the electronic device and its software applications is then controlled by the match percentage. If the match percentage is greater than or equal to an access match level, access to the electronic device is granted. If the match percentage is less than the access match level, access is denied. Subsequent access requires further regeneration of the NFP and a determination of its match percentage in response.
