ABR was founded in an effort to bring about an altogether new electronics-based Invention primarily founded upon RFID (radio frequency identification) technology. For an abbreviated explanation: a typical RFID system makes use of a "reader" device to upload (read) data from a remoted "tag" device. Data stored in a tag can be retrieved by a reader if the reader is brought into close proximity to a tag (or vise versa). RFID systems are widely used for tracking shipping containers and consumer goods, inventory control, and are often found in consumer product, and anti-theft security systems.
One of the top ten fastest growing industries in the world is RFID. However, RFID technology has mainly been utilized as first conceived: As a method of non-contact product identification.
ABR has taken that foundational technology and transformed it such that an entirely new RFID industry is now possible. By studying a basic dynamic principle used in RFID, ABR has developed a non-contact methodology whereby we are able to align one device, or apparatus to another in 3 dimensional space. Use of our Invention is not limited to a single axis of operation, but may include a multiplicity of axis'.
One key element of our IP (first proved in an ABR laboratory prototype system) is that we are able to utilize the electromagnetic flux fields generated by 1) a tranceiver inductor (typically a toroidal shape coil as found in a reader) and those emitted from 2) a proximally placed tag (also having a coil), to note the centering and positional distance of a reader to a tag (or vise versa) along one axis.
In a multi-coil reader developed by ABR, we're able to note the positional difference of a tag's placement relative to each coil within the reader head. The benefit is that we can intimately sense where a tag is (positioned) in relationship to the reader (and it's coils), and from this, provide for many nuances related to the parameter of alignment between the two (ie: the reader and the tag).
ABR's technology provides for myriad of original product applications, as well as supports "standard/common" RFID product design applications.
ABR Technology and IP remains beneficially applicable to:
1. those products which require or might make use of: non-contact power control or operation, non-contact accessibility or enabling, or non-contact entry;
2. those products which might require non-contact item or device detection, monitoring, and/or control or feedback as concerns the spatial arrangement of certain systems or components of said systems to other apparatus, items, or devices; and/or yet more specifically,
3. those products which require or might make use of: a non-contact positioning or alignment capability, which among many available others, include dental and medical xray/imaging technologies.
As a function of operation, ABR Technology has the capacity to be utilized in myriad applications, wherein, and broadly speaking, an RF tag device may act as a "remote target/sensor" or "system activation key" which is ultimately intended to interface with an RF transponder.
Said RF tag and RF transponder together provide for a non-contact RF transducer alignment system, wherein said RF transponder ultimately causes to occur one or more predefined actions or activities, as predeterminedly required by: the real-world function(s) desired; specific application; and/or, the type of end-user product being manufactured.
It is thus a function of ABR Technology to provide for a novel RF transducer system, composed of: at least one RF tag device, and an RF transponder (which is comprised of an intelligent controller device attached to an RF reader device), wherein ABR Technologymay act to perform as other common RFID systems (ie: simple data detection and handling), yet can further provide for accurate positioning and alignment between two or more apparatus'.
In yet other forms or embodiments, ABR Technology may perform in some differingly predefined manner, wherein the present Invention may be utilized as: an intelligent item or device detector, or even comprise part of an electronics control and/or feedback system.
Briefly discussing a few applications for non-contact alignment, a core aspect and unique capability of ABR Technology, it's shared many applications exist which could benefit by a means with which to detect, monitor, and/or respond to the particular alignment of one apparatus to another, as in:
1. when space (or other environment) docking one vehicle or platform to another; or for:
2. locating the internal communications port on a marine environmental transducer so certain data can be recovered from said transducer without opening it's enclosure or using an external connector; or even, for:
3. exactingly monitoring the positioning of various storage compartments, hatches, or flight-control surfaces on commercial (or other) aircraft, or spacecraft.
There seem numerous hand-held applications as well. As for two consider: exactingly identifying the position of: in wall, underground/buried cabling or gas pipes, etc, wherein homeowners and/or utility personnel could easily denote not only the "where" and/or "what" of what lies hidden from view, but perhaps: when installed or how deep by means of one or more concealed RF tag devices. The benefits are obvious.
It also remains that, as an example, locating and identifying: hidden control knobs or valves and/or buried coupling apparatus' may be keenly desired, requiring exacting location of said apparatus' in order that one may accurately unveil their physical position before servicing or repairing or upgrading might be accomplished. ABR Technology can provide such utility for an end user.
Another hand-held application might be that of a luggage identification system, wherein ticket handlers might cause the programming and attachment of an RF tag to ones luggage, wherein primary benefits would be: far more accurate and simple destination processing... and which application, if extended, might also include insuring the rightful owner during baggage "pickup" should a question arise.
Of significant functional importance, particularly when speaking to critical tag-to-transponder alignment issues, is again: the capability of the present Inventions' RF transponder circuitry to provide indication of "best xray aperature-to-film alignment" condition without the need for utilizing customary alignment tools, devices, or procedures and to do so in a non-contact manner, wherein at least three net benefits and results are:
This working model shows the viability of the technology as applied to a dental x-ray device.
