  • Publication number: 20220171951
    Abstract: A distributed ledger-based system and methods for tracking products using the same are described herein. The method ensures authenticity by allowing verification of the digital identity of a physical item at each step of the supply chain. The method may include receiving and verifying integrated circuit chips manufactured by a trusted supplier, assembling the chips into a roll inlay, assembling the inlay rolls into a carton, palletizing the cartons, updating the distributed ledger, e.g., blockchain, with roll, carton, and pallet codes, taking receipt from a specific trusted individual and adding verification to the distributed ledger, e.g., blockchain, and activating a digital identity. GPS information may be associated with every step in order to ensure that the product is properly present at certain manufacturing and encoding locations. Once a digital identity is produced for the product, it may be added to by subsequent use, such as may be desired.

  • Patent number: 11051992
    Abstract: A method for inspecting absorbent articles is provided. The inspection is performed using an inspection algorithm generated with a convolutional neural network having convolutional neural network parameters. The convolutional neural network parameters are generated by a training algorithm. Based on the inspection, characteristics of the absorbent articles, such as defects, can be identified. Absorbent articles having identified characteristics can be rejected, or other actions can be taken.
