UTILITY PATENTS Waterless electrochemical transdermal alcohol sensor and wearable transdermal alcohol sensor device Assignee(s): 1A SMART START LLC (Grapevine, TX) Law Firm: Kriegsman Kriegsman (2 non-local offices) Application No., Date, Speed: 15894255 on 02/12/2018 (1499 days app to issue) Abstract: Waterless electrochemical transdermal alcohol sensor. In one embodiment, the sensor includes a proton exchange membrane imbibed with an imbibing liquid that includes at least one cationic substance that is liquid at room temperature. As examples, the cationic substance may be one or more ionic liquids with an imidazolium, phosphonium, ammonium, pyridinium, pyrrolidinium, or sulfonium backbone structure. The imbibing of the proton exchange membrane with the cationic substance obviates the need for the periodic addition of water to the electrochemical cell. The sensor additionally includes a sensing electrode, which is bonded to one side of the proton exchange membrane, and a counter electrode and a reference electrode, both of which are bonded to the opposite side of the proton exchange membrane. The sensor may be incorporated into a wearable transdermal alcohol sensor device, which, in turn, may be incorporated into a system for detecting transdermal alcohol.

An improved structure of target database may be achieved by removing constraints used when creating legacy databases. According to some aspects, these and other benefits may be achieved by combining multiple source tables into a single target table with errors being identified and addressed during the creation of the instructions to generate the target table.
