A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11922490B2) discloses a back-end system that includes a processor and a communications interface. The processor is designed to determine the detection range of portable external devices based on signals received via the communications interface. By analyzing the detection ranges of multiple external devices, the system can pinpoint the geographic area where a portable electrical energy storage device, enclosed within a case with a wireless transponder, is located. This technology is particularly useful for tracking energy storage devices used to power electric vehicles.

Furthermore, the system can collect and transmit data to the portable electrical energy storage device, which could be a battery or a capacitor. The method outlined in the patent involves determining the detection ranges of external devices, such as vehicles or scooters, to locate one or more energy storage devices. The wireless transponder inside the case of the energy storage device allows for communication without the need for an external antenna. Overall, this patented technology offers a sophisticated solution for efficiently managing and tracking portable electrical energy storage devices used in electrically powered vehicles, enhancing the overall user experience and convenience.
