MachineTalker® Acquires License to Liquid Measurement Technology

MTKN Obtains Exclusive Worldwide Rights to a Simple Yet Accurate Method for Measurement of Liquids in Railroad Tank Cars and Storage Tanks

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 7, 2007 -- MachineTalker, Inc. (OTCBB: MTKN), developer of smart wireless security networks and tracking systems, today announced that it has acquired the rights to package and interconnect a uniquely inexpensive sensor for measuring liquids in storage or mobile tanks. Signals from the patented measuring device are then managed by a MachineTalker for analysis and dissemination into a wireless mesh network for remote access and control.

Mr. Hugh McGookin, the holder of this and several other patents covering different means of measuring liquid volume, has licensed the Company to include his measuring device as a new product in MachineTalker's family of intelligent sensors for remote and unattended applications.

According to Roland F. Bryan, MachineTalker's CEO, "Our first application of McGookin's device, the 'Levelease', will be to report on the contents and the amount of liquid cargo in railroad tank cars."

The Levelease will provide the height of liquid and the MachineTalker, connected to the Levelease, will calculate the volume and then wirelessly report on and store the information. In addition, the Talker® will keep all other relevant information about the liquid, like what it is, who owns it, where it is going, and when it was loaded. Talkers can even store procedural information for use during an emergency.

"This will be our initial and crucial foothold in the railroad industry, which is an ideal application for our Talker technology. Railroads, like many other industries that are focused on safely moving massive amounts of cargo, realize that they must be able to track the whereabouts of all of their containers and their contents," concluded Bryan.
