A loose wearable receiver system is disclosed. A loose wearable receiver system is a body-associated personal communicator capable of detecting, monitoring, analyzing, and/or transmitting information about a wearer. The loose wearable system may be operable to detect an electrical current signature from an ingestible device indicator system. The loose wearable system may store and/or access data on a remote system. The loose wearable system may comprise a wearable component configured to be removably worn, such as on a limb. The loose wearable system comprises a compartment and optionally a battery-powered electronics module configured to be removably attached to the compartment or a charging station for charging a battery within the wearable system.

Systems, methods, and apparatuses are presented for resolving any interference, noise, and/or collisions caused by two or more ingestible event markers (IEMs) transmitting simultaneously or concurrently. Methods include techniques from the perspective of the IEM for randomly varying signal transmission characteristics in order to avoid collisions with other concurrently transmitting IEMs. Methods also include techniques from the perspective of a receiver for receiving multiple transmission signals from multiple IEMs and for resolving any interference or signal collisions.

An apparatus includes a food product, at least one ingestible device associated with the food product to communicate information and at least one coating material surrounding the at least one ingestible device is disclosed. The ingestible device is associated with an ingestible medication to be ingested in conjunction with the food product. The coating is configured to release the at least one ingestible device upon the occurrence of an event.


A method may comprise receiving and sampling a signal. The signal may encode a data packet. A slice may be generated and stored comprising a pair of values for each of a selected number of samples of the signal representing a correlation of the signal to reference functions in the receiver. The presence of the data packet may then be detected and the detected packet decoded from the stored slices. The generating and storing slices may be carried out as the received signal is sampled. The sampled values of the signal may be discarded as the slices are generated and stored. The slice representation of the signal can be manipulated to generate filters with flexible bandwidth and center frequency.
