  • Patent number: 10692230
    Abstract: A self-service terminal, such as an automated teller machine, can have a fascia, a display positioned on the fascia, and a depth sensing camera positioned on the fascia. The camera can capture a video stream of a hand-held document, such as a check, and capture a depth map stream of the hand-held document. A processor positioned in the self-service terminal can sequentially: determine, from the depth map stream, that the document is outside a specified range of distances away from the camera; present, on the display, instructions to reposition the document to be within the specified range of distances away from the camera; determine, from the depth map stream, that the document is within the specified range of distances away from the camera; and automatically capture an image of the document from the video stream.

  • Patent number: 10686931
    Abstract: A passenger terminal AI system automatically connects with messaging apps on passenger smartphones over a wireless network when passengers enter the terminal. This creates a communication link between the server and each smartphone. When the passenger enters the terminal, the AI system identifies the passenger by facial recognition software or by tracked passenger transactions at the terminal, providing passenger identity. Passenger browser history information and travel information is retrieved from the smartphone. Passenger location is identified and tracked. The server provides the passenger's smart phone, via the messaging app, with 100 personalized messages related to possible purchase by the passenger of travel and other services, located in the terminal and elsewhere, based in part on the retrieved information. The server provides the passenger with terminal schedule and gate information, and also operates with service providers to meet the passenger's desired services.

  • Patent number: 10679050
    Abstract: Various embodiments herein each include at least one of systems, devices, software, and methods for invalidation recognition and fraud prevention. One embodiment, in the form of a method, includes identifying a document-type of a received image as a check and identifying each of at least one area of the received image as a zone of the check. This method continues by processing each zone to locate text or symbols indicating the check is non-negotiable and subsequently outputting a non-negotiable rejection indication to prevent further payment processing of the check image.

  • Patent number: 10679082
    Abstract: Real-time facial recognition is augmented with a machine-learning process that samples pixels from images captured for the physical environmental background of a device, which captures an image of a user's face for facial authentication. The background pixel points that are present in a captured image of a user's face from a camera of the device are authenticated with the image of the user's face. The value of the background pixel points are compared against the expected values for the background pixel points provided by the on-going machine-learning process for the background.

  • Patent number: 10679450
    Abstract: A contact image sensor can illuminate a portion of a banknote with one or more light emitting diodes (LEDs), capture an image of the portion of the banknote with illumination reflected from or transmitted through the banknote, and generate a digital output signal that represents the captured image. A controller board can receive the digital output signal, generate one or more LED control signals, each LED control signal including changes in voltage to indicate times to switch a light emitting diode on or off, direct the one or more LED control signals to the contact image sensor, bypass digital LED control circuitry that is included with the contact image sensor, and switch the one or more LEDs in the contact image sensor on or off at the times indicated by the respective light emitting diode control signals.

  • Patent number: 10679469
    Abstract: A system and method of managing unavailable items in shared screen data which provides access to modified screen data substantially simultaneously. The system includes a first computer including a display for displaying a screen containing items from screen data including modified screen data during a transaction. The modified screen data reflects that at least one of the items is unavailable. The first computer shares the screen data with a second computer. The first computer is also for displaying an indication that the at least one item is unavailable substantially simultaneously following modification of the screen data and upon selection of the at least one item at one of the first and second computers.

  • Patent number: 10679471
    Abstract: Various embodiments herein each include at least one of systems, methods, and software for model-based data validation to identify when self-scan checkout data requires validation. Some embodiments, in the form of a method includes receiving, via a network from a self-scanning device, a self-scan dataset of items for purchase within a purchase data processing transaction and evaluating the self-scan dataset to determine whether to require a rescan of items represented in the self-scan dataset. In such embodiments when a rescan is determined to be required, the method includes transmitting via the network to at least one of the self-scan device and at least one device of a store employee data indicating a rescan is required. However, when a rescan is not determined to be required, the method includes permitting the purchase data processing transaction to proceed.

  • Patent number: 10679149
    Abstract: A 3-axis recording movements/acceleration and/or temperature/humidity is integrated into a motherboard of a terminal. Movements and acceleration and/or temperature/humidity experienced by the terminal are captured and logged and reported from the terminal to a predictive management service. The predictive management service correlates the movements and acceleration and/or temperature/humidity with service records to identify patterns. During operation of the terminal, the predictive management service provides predicted service actions needed by the terminal in advance of a problem being experienced by the terminal based on the patterns, and the predictive management service notifies a service management system for performing the service actions.
